It is assumed that the game will receive the same tick rate as Valorant.
The latest Nvidia driver found references to Counter-Strike 2: csgos2.exe and cs2.exe files are mentioned in game profiles. According to journalist Richard Lewis, the game really exists.
The game will almost certainly be released under the name Counter-Strike 2. The release of the beta version is tentatively scheduled for March, the deadline is April 1. It is because of the development of Counter-Strike 2 that nothing special has been happening with CS: GO lately. Main Valve’s goal now is to release Counter-Strike 2 and then polish the game to the level that fans have come to expect from games in the series. The game is being built on the Source 2 engine. Counter-Strike 2 may not run very well on low-end PCs. Strike 2 will receive a tick rate of 128 – like Valorant. Probably, such a tick rate will already be during the beta test. The system for selecting opponents has been redesigned in the game. It is assumed that third-party services like FACEIT will no longer be needed.
It is alleged that Valve has already conducted closed testing of Counter-Strike 2 with the participation of a group of professional cybersportsmen. According to sources, the game is almost ready for release.
Richard has not been able to find out what will happen to Counter-Strike Global Offensive after the release of Counter-Strike 2.
