The remade Cache is available to play in official Casual, Deathmatch and Scrimmage servers. However, Cache isn’t added to the active duty competitive pool. Cache was removed earlier from the game to begin its remaking process and Vertigo was placed in the competitive pool instead of it.

In March, 2019 Cache was replaced by Vertigo in the CS: GO competitive map pool. Even with the lot of controversies around the decision, Vertigo was never replaced back with Cache. Players have been waiting for the re-release of the map to see the new design one of the most loved maps of Counter Strike.
