Last week, Valve announced the successor/update to its ultra-popular CG: GO, called Counter-Strike 2. It is now available for select users who are on the Limited Test.
Now, a Twitter user has spotted code that seemingly suggests that Valve might be gearing up to bring the Counter-Strike franchise to mobile platforms, beginning with Counter-Strike 2.
A popular leaker Aquarius (@aquaismissing on Twitter), has posted this on Twitter:
Since Source 2 supports iOS and Android, Counter-Strike 2 Mobile might actually be a real thing 😳 pic.twitter.com/SJi8GZMawJ

Counter-Strike 2 allows you to edit maps and create custom commands in the console using CS2’s engine Source 2.
Source 2 is the engine that Counter-Strike 2 runs on. And this code suggests that the game can run at higher fps on mobile when the device is charging.
Counter-Strike has never been on mobile platforms, and the presence of these commands on the Source 2 platform raises eyebrows.
Riot Games is already working on the mobile port of its hit PvP multiplayer Valorant, a major competitor to CS: GO. It would only make sense that Valve is trying to bring its flagship game to mobile. Let’s wait for the arrival of CS2 on mobile!
CS: GO is Retiring From Esports
Counter-Strike 2’s predecessor CS: GO, is probably one of the biggest hits in Esports. Valve has now announced that the forthcoming Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Major in Paris will be the last CS: GO tournament.
The Paris Major will be the final CS:GO Major.
The following Major will be in March 2024 and the first in Counter-Strike 2.
