Rumor: Is there a CS:GO sequel on the way?
Valve She’s not known for making sequels, and when she rarely does, she takes forever to get them out. But some believe a sequel to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive could be on the way, after discovering an interesting file in Nvidia’s latest driver update.
Within the drivers there were references to “csgo2.exe” and “cs2.exe”. The user who found these references clarified that “cs2.exe” is a holdover from 2014, but regarding “csgo2.exe” we seem to have less information.
This has led some to believe that they could be developing a sequel to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive on the Source 2 engine. While possible, it doesn’t seem very likely to us, considering that CS:GO continues to enjoy overwhelming success, being as old as it is.
The game has broken its own player records recently, so if Valve is developing a sequel, it would risk splitting its player base between older and newer games. What’s your opinion about it?
