There have been rumours for years that Counter-Strike: Global Offensive might be remade with a new engine. Many people’s hopes for a CS:GO Source 2 update were dashed, but now it’s finally here.
The CS:GO Source 2 rumor mill has been picking considerable steam over the last couple of months, with evidence from many reliable sources supporting its existence. When will Counter-Strike 2 be out, and how will the CS:GO standings change with the Source 2 update? Everything you need to know is listed here.
Counter-Strike 2 Release Date
Valve has officially announced Summer 2023 for the PC release of Counter-Strike 2.
A report from Richard Lewis fueled speculation that the long-awaited game update was now ready for release. The release date is unknown, but it will likely coincide with that of Dota 2 Reborn, the patch that ported the game to the Source 2 engine. Therefore, it seems probable that Counter-Strike 2 will enter beta testing shortly, as reported by Richard Lewis.
The new version will be an option for players, alongside CS:GO. After CS:GO Source 2 has undergone sufficient testing, the whole game should be released, at which point it will completely replace CS:GO. The precise timing of this has not been verified, however, it is expected to occur later in 2023.
NVIDIA’s addition of csgo.2.exe and cs2.exe to its driver support list was another hint. The development pre-release branch was updated on March 14 to include Source 2. On March 17, Valve registered the trademarks for the names “CS2” and “Counter-Strike.”
Here is a tweet about the latest NVIDIA drivers introduced support for unknown app executables called “csgos2.exe” and “cs2.exe”.
Something weird just happened. Latest NVIDIA drivers introduced support for unknown app executables called "csgos2.exe" and "cs2.exe". Why project is called Counter-Strike 2 and what are you cooking @csgo? https://t.co/U9YKlAjwgy pic.twitter.com/PU8Op9uGLq

They are inextricably linked to the preexisting CS:GO trademark, providing more evidence of the existence of a relationship between the two. For the first time in months, the CS:GO Twitter account has a new header, featuring the silhouettes of five CT players.
It was speculated that the developers at Valve were capturing promotional images earlier in the day when they changed their profile photos. The “Global Offensive” phrase was removed and the banner was updated to a different shade of blue on March 21, 2023.
Updates To Counter-Strike 2
Sub-tick updates are one of several upcoming changes to the gameplay of Counter-Strike 2, thereby rendering tick rate irrelevant to both movement and shooting. Between ticks, it will figure out just what to do. The game’s visuals have also been greatly improved.
New lighting and graphics have been added while returning maps like Italy, Overpass, and Zoo have been given a complete makeover. Smoke grenades now have the ability to dynamically fill space and produce 3D volumetric blooms. The bloom is now visible to all players and may be pushed by grenades or other means.

How Long Has Counter-Strike 2 Been In Development?
Lewis claims that Valve has been working on Counter-Strike 2 for a long time and that it is a top priority. The team’s dedication to the franchise as a whole may account for the fact that some CS:GO problems have gone unfixed for so long.
Counter-Strike 2 is now undergoing closed beta testing, and before you get too excited, it’s not a whole new game; rather, it’s an upgrade to CS:GO that will migrate the game to the Source 2 engine.
But, we will soon find out the truth. If you’re a fan of Counter-Strike, you should know that a beta version is supposedly on the horizon. Be sure to brush off your CS:GO crosshair and practice clicking heads if you can’t wait to get in before the Counter-Strike 2 release date.
