Counter-Strike: Global Offensive: Source 2 Is The Future

Valve’s successful shooter is changing engines.

If you play DotA 2, then you know how the game has recently switched to the Source 2 engine. The new Counter-Strike will follow suit – Valve has announced it during a Chinese event, as they are officially entering the game in the country, which could be another potential source of profit for Valve. The publisher in the country is Perfect World.

The new engine will bring a new user interface (the tiled Panorama UI, used in DotA 2 as well), as well the use of machine learning to ban cheaters out of the game altogether. If you cheat, you can get caught. Period.

In China, the new engine-based CS: GO will launch on April 18, which could be followed by a worldwide launch in a few weeks, or in a worst case scenario, months. Expect new content, too: a new operation will arrive this summer.
