There's been a whole lot of rumours appearing lately that seem quite credible, with Counter-Strike 2 apparently due soon. It's not entirely clear if this is a full new game, or a big upgrade for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive but either way it's pretty exciting for FPS fans.
One thing being pointed out is how the NVIDIA driver on Windows added profiles for "csgos2.exe" and "cs2.exe", with it even being named directly as Counter-Strike 2. NVIDIA have, in the past, accidentally let slip a number of other upcoming games that ended up being real. Alone, that wouldn't be exactly solid though.
Now we also have Richard Lewis, esports journalist and broadcaster, writing how it is in fact very real and some sources with knowledge of it came to them to verify it:
Speaking under the condition of anonymity sources with a knowledge of the game’s development told us that indeed there was a new version of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive on its way and that had been worked on for some time. The new version is almost certainly set to be released under the working title Counter-Strike 2 and the tentative release date for the beta is in this month of March with April 1st at the outside.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive originally launched in 2012, and it has seen many upgrades since then. Even so, that's still quite a long time for Valve to support it, and it does show its age in many ways.
While nothing is confirmed yet of course, it's still very exciting. Seems like March and April are shaping up to be very interesting months. Once I hear any more, I'll let you know.
