Counter-Strike 2 Release Today? Valve and Insider Provide New Information

New release information about CS2: Counter-Strike 2, also known as CS2, is said to be released today, Wednesday, September 27, 2023. This release information has been circulating for a week now, and overnight, both developer Valve and one of the biggest streamers have practically confirmed the release date.

Valve's official Twitter account for CS2 changed its banner overnight to “Dawn of the Final Day.” This is a clear indication from Valve about the impending release. Furthermore, well-known streamer DR Disrespect, who was once a video game developer for Call of Duty, also confirmed the release of Counter-Strike for September 27, 2023, via Twitter.

Although there is no official time or a 100% confirmed date for the CS2 release, despite all these hints, it should be noted that the timings for us in Germany may be inconvenient, possibly extending into the night of September 28, Thursday.

Counter-Strike 2 – What's New in the Successor to CS:GO?

CS2, or Counter-Strike 2, should be seen more as an update for CS:GO. The biggest innovation is the Source-2 Engine, which propels the aging shooter into the future. Features like Zero Ping (sub-tick updates), which is the holy grail of connections, make Call of Duty players green with envy. Another new shooter game is also causing chaos with its release.

In Counter-Strike 2, there are various updates, including physically accurate smoke reactions to shots and explosions. This testing phase is constantly receiving updates and is said to be a lot of fun to play. An advantage is that all weapon skins from CS:GO can be carried over to CS2. CS2 will make weapon skins like “Crimson Web” even more beautiful, and perhaps more valuable?
