We are talking about csgos2.exe and cs2.exe. Dataminer Aquarius believesthat cs2.exe is a relic of the past and doesn’t deserve attention while csgos2.exe is worth a closer look.

The acronym csgos2 is believed to be Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Source 2 – a port of Valve’s popular multiplayer shooter to its latest engine (CS:GO runs on the first iteration of Source).

Aquarius himself, previously citing his own informant informedthat Valve is planning to release a version of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive on Source 2 in the first quarter of 2023, i.e. before the end of March.

Fans have been hoping to see Counter-Strike: Global Offensive on Source 2 for years, and have even tried to port it themselves, but were stopped by Valve themselves (see video below).

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive debuted on PC (Steam), PS3, and Xbox 360 in August 2012. In December 2018, the shooter switched to a shareware distribution model and continues to receive updates.

Despite its venerable age, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive remains one of the most popular on Steam and still updates Peak Online’s personal record – in-game last week Firmly 1,355,797 people.
