Will the Highly Anticipated New Era of Counter-Strike Drop Today?

The Counter-Strike community is abuzz with excitement and anticipation as new leaks suggest a major update to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive may be released today, March 14, 2023. As a diehard fan of the franchise, I’ve been eagerly awaiting news of this update for what feels like an eternity. At the moment, I am also sitting with some pros on Discord, waiting on further updates.

The leak, which was posted on Twitter by Counter-Strike news coverage wickedplayer494, included a SteamDB link that showed the addition of several new depots and changes to the app config, indicating that something significant is on the way.

Is the new Counter-Strike finally here?

If the rumored update to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive does arrive, it’s expected to be in beta for some time before it replaces the current version of the game. This would allow for testing and feedback from players to ensure that the new version is stable and enjoyable for everyone.

Despite the lack of official confirmation from Valve, adding new depots and changes to the app config suggest that this update will be a game-changer. Many fans speculate that it may move the game to the Source 2 engine, which has been rumored for some time. But we can only hope and wait until Valve makes an official announcement.

As the hours tick by, the excitement among Counter-Strike fans continues to build. For years, we’ve been eagerly anticipating the next chapter in the franchise, hoping for something that will take our love of the game to the next level. Will this update be the one we’ve been waiting for? Only time will tell, but one thing is sure: the Counter-Strike community is more passionate than ever.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
