There has been no official announcement regarding the release of Counter-Strike 2, which has been in beta for a while. However, Valve has recently hinted about the game’s release date through a tweet on X. According to the tweet, the successor to one of the most popular FPS games may be launched next week.
Counter-Strike 2 Release Date
Valve had initially announced that Counter-Strike 2 would be released by the end of summer. This led many to believe the launch was set for around 22 September 2023. However, this was not the case since the beta was still live. The gaming company had been working on ironing out the maps brought to the sequel of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and is also polishing the overall experience. But according to their latest teaser, CS 2 might arrive next Wednesday.
On X (formerly Twitter), Counter-Strike 2’s official account asked fans, “What are you doing next Wednesday?” This hints at the official stable release of Counter-Strike 2. For those unaware, CS:GO launched over a decade ago and is one of the most popular video games ever. It is also among the most played multiplayer games and an iconic title in the competitive first-person shooter genre. Now, Counter-Strike 2 will be carrying on this legacy.
It is worth noting that CS 2’s launch will mark the end of CS:GO. But gamers will retain their inventory. Apart from a graphical upgrade, there is even a robust anti-cheat system and the shift to the newer Source 2 game engine. If the teaser is actually for the game’s launch, Valve plans to launch CS 2 on 27 September 2023, which isn’t far from our original estimates. Remember, this is still an unconfirmed report, so stick around for more updates.
