Rumors about Counter-Strike 2 on the Source 2 engine have been around for quite some time, but most players still did not believe that Valve would take such a step. But it seems that all these rumors were not groundless.
Initially the Valve community noticed support for new executables called csgos2.exe and cs2.exe in NVIDIA drivers.
And now there is additional unofficial information – from an esports journalist Richard Lewis, who in the past has repeatedly posted reliable data about Counter-Strike. According to his unnamed sources, the new Counter-Strike is “absolutely real”, the game has been in production for some time and may be released under the name Counter-Strike 2.
What’s more: he claims that the first beta will most likely be released this month. Valve plans to do it by April 1. It is also reported that Counter-Strike 2 has been a priority project at Valve for some time, which is why the company has not paid much attention to CS:GO recently.
