Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has been ticking along nicely for a decade now, but it could soon receive a major overhaul that could boost the presence of the popular online shooter.
According to eSports journalist, Richard Lewis, Valve is set to migrate CS:GO to the Source 2 Engine in the near future. Perhaps even this month!
Lewis, who has substantial previous experience in reporting on the game, stated Valve has already been trialing the Source 2 version with pro players at its offices in Seattle.
The update to Source 2, which is used for games such as Half-Life: Alyx, would likely help boost visual quality and game performance, but apparently, Valve won't stop there. Lewis also reports that the company will improve matchmaking and latency options.
Despite some Nvidia driver releases revealing executable files pertaining to a CS: GO 2, it seems this will most likely be an update to the original game instead of a full-blown sequel. Lewis doesn't believe we'll have long to find out.
