We can expect Counter Strike 2: New details

The renowned esports journalist Richard Lewis spoke with a source familiar with Counter-Strike 2's development, who claims that the game is in its final stages of development and that a beta will be made available over the next few weeks.

There will be an 11th anniversary of CS:GO this year. Since a while ago, there have been rumors about a possible successor to one of the most popular shooters in the esports world, as well as the rest of the world in general.

Earlier this week, the imaginations of players were tickled once again, when the user Gabe Follower, reported on his Twitter account that csgos2.exe and cs2.exe unknown applications can be found in the new NVIDIA drivers released by Intel.

It was, however, a rumor that died down as many others have done before it. A few days ago, Richard Lewis, arguably the most popular esports journalist and source of information regarding the game's development, announced that he spoke to an individual familiar with the development process of the game.

There should be no doubt that Richard Lewis has not yet deserved to be regarded with suspicion, regardless of what one thinks about him, whether one likes him or not. As a result, a pompous announcement by him would reflect extremely badly on his career, in the event that the announcement turns out to be false.

Richard Lewis spokesperson

A spokesperson for Richard Lewis told us that CS2 is ready for beta testing, which should begin before the end of March (the third month of the year), and that the deadline for the beta test is April 1st, that is, April 1st of the year.

Several readers were sceptical when it came to this date. There should be a visual refresh of CS2, a better optimization of the game and it should be powered by Source 2, as well as a 128 tick rate server. By doing this, Valve would have more opportunities when it comes to the future of the game.

The developer also said that CS2 is one of the priorities, which is why some changes in CS:GO may have been overlooked due to the priority given to CS2. Among the goals of the project is the improvement of the matchmaking system within the game, so that it is no longer necessary to use additional platforms, such as FACEIT, to provide a better ranking experience.

As reported by the same source, some professional players have already tested the game and claimed that it has worked well.
