It has been long-rumored that Counter-Strike 2 will be released at some time in the future, and it appears more and more likely today than ever. Counter-Strike two is reportedly coming, according to Counter-Strike community leader Richard Lewis, an eSports journalist, event host, commentator, and analyst.
According to Lewis, the working title of the new edition, Counter-Strike 2, will likely be used for its release. The beta is scheduled for release in March, with April 1st being the latest date.
Also, according to Lewis, CSGO 2 features 128 tick servers to keep up with Riot Games’ Valorant. According to the source, the game will also include a significantly better match-making system with features that, it is believed, will eliminate the necessity for third-party pugging services.
The news follows NVIDIA driver upgrades that referred to “CSGOS2,” which is thought to be the name of the upcoming game or update. Although it was noted he “can’t confirm 100%,” @gabefollower on Twitter claimed that CSGO2 had been under QA since December 2022.
Rumor: I've got fairly reliable information that Valve has been testing CS:GO on Source 2 with the help of third-party QA companies in the US and EU since at least early December. I can't confirm this 100%, but it's decent enough to share.— Gabe Follower 2 (@gabefollower) March 5, 2023

With information now in the dark over what this means for the original game and whether or not Counter-Strike 2 will entirely replace it, the latest reports and leaks make for an engaging story. What this means for player skins, though, is much more crucial. If the update rumors are genuine, Valve will address what will happen in the immediate announcement because Counter-Strike skins may cost tens of thousands of dollars. But hopefully, they will transfer to this recently revised title.
What do you think about a possible Counter-Strike 2 release soon?
