Is ‘Counter-Strike 2 releasing in March end?
A fresh source claims that Counter-Strike 2, an upgraded version of the renowned shooter built on the Source 2 engine, is true and will enter beta later this month.
The highly regarded esports writer Richard Lewis revealed earlier today that Valve has been working on Counter-Strike 2 for some time and that a beta version will be released this month.
As the Counter-Strike development team has been focusing on the new game for some time, several problems in CS:GO have gone unfixed. The team working on the new game includes developers who have worked across different versions of Counter-Strike.
However, according to Lewis, Counter-Strike 2 will include an improved matching system that is more in line with what third-party services like FACEIT provide, and 128 tick servers, something the CS:GO community has demanded for years. Unfortunately, the updated matching mechanism won’t be ready in time for the beta’s release.
The transition to the Source 2 engine is intended to provide a variety of aesthetic and optimization improvements, but it may raise the resources necessary to operate the game, making it impossible for certain players with lower-spec Computers to participate.

The announcement arrives after weeks of speculation about a potential significant upgrade to CS:GO. New listings for Counter-Strike 2 have been detected in NVIDIA driver updates, and the official Counter-Strike social media accounts have been more active than normal, including the launch of a Tik Tok account, both of which have stoked heightened anticipation. Lewis’s analysis seems to suggest that significant changes are coming to the Counter-Strike universe, and they may be much larger than expected.
He also wonders what effect this will have on the ever-growing competitive Counter-Strike scene. There was a large divide between the professional CS 1.6 and CS Source communities when CS:GO first came out more than a decade ago. Given that every major professional scene is focused on the same game, the transition to a new title may be more orderly and required by Valve, or it may once again be left to the community, leading to a fractured professional landscape. Nonetheless, Valve will want to make sure Counter-Strike 2 is reliable before making the switch to it as the primary game played at the professional level.
