Valve employee teased community with possible Source 2 transition
CS:GO developer John McDonald in his tweet asked an interesting question . The community of the game saw this as a hidden hint of preparing to move the shooter from Valve to the modern Source Engine 2.
Any devs out there still have to maintain dx9 codebases or is it just us?— John McDonald (@basisspace) March 26, 2020
The day before, several insiders said they had reliable information about the upcoming CS:GO transition from the first to the second version of Source. The release may take place in the next two months.
Now Source 2 is used in Dota 2, Half-Life: Alyx and other Valve games. The transition to the new engine will significantly affect the game's graphics and physics, and will allow the developers to release big updates more often.
