The much-anticipated Counter-Strike 2 release is on the horizon. The hype is real, and the promised release date by Valve aka Summer 2023 is closing in. Finally, we have a hint for the date on which CS2 could be released, replacing the original CS:GO game. So, let’s check out the latest details surrounding the Counter-Strike 2 launch right here.
Valve Teases Counter-Strike 2 Release Date
In case you want to catch up with what’s new in the game, here are 20 new features in CS2. Now, let’s discuss the expected release date. The official Counter-Strike account on X (formerly Twitter) recently shared a post, highlighting an important day that could possibly mean CS2 is finally being released on this date. Check it out:
The post simply reads “What are you doing next Wednesday?” and while it is definitely cryptic, what else could they be hinting at? This date is a few days after their promised Summer 2023 release window for Counter-Strike 2. The post on X itself is from the official Counter Strike handle.
So, it looks like Counter-Strike 2 could be released on September 27, 2023. We are only a few days away from this date, so get ready to play CS2! There is a chance that this is an open beta release, as the ongoing invite-only CS2 beta is still somewhat buggy.
By getting to the open beta stage, Valve would put their hard work to the test and iron out the game’s issues completely by testing it with a large player base. Hopefully, they are aiming to release the stable version before esports tournaments begin in CS2. If you are wondering how to get access to Counter-Strike 2, check this out.
