CS:GO Source 2 Will Be Released In Less Than Two Weeks: This Confirms the Activity of the Developers
CS:GO update files look the same as Dota 2 update files.
Users have found confirmation of an upcoming CS:GO update.
Reddit users compared developer activity on steamdb.info before the Dota 2 update to Source 2 and current activity related to CS:GO. From this, it is possible to conclude the output of the update.
Dota 2 and CS:GO files look the same
At night, another CS:GO client update was recorded on steamdb.info. This time the file cs2.exe appeared there. Of course, the community immediately began to wait for the update's release, but it never came. After that, players compared the changes before the release of Source 2 in Dota 2 and the latest activity in CS:GO.
It was almost completely identical to the activity of Dota 2. From this, it is possible to conclude the update's release date in CS. Dota 2 received similar changes 15 days before the release of the game's beta client on the new engine.
This means that the maximum term of CS:GO Source 2 before the release is 15 days. But it can be released much earlier because the new version is already undergoing final tests, while in Dota 2, at the moment of activity, not all files were ready.
How will CS:GO Source 2 be released?
In addition to the date, it is possible to conclude how the Source 2 update for CS:GO will be released from this comparison. In the case of Dota 2, the beta version on Source 2 was an option at launch. For some time, players could still run the old version of the game, but over time, Dota 2 on Source 2 became the main client.
Something similar will happen with CS:GO, but the time of beta testing is challenging to predict, and everything will depend on the polish of the original version.
