Data miners: Valve works on porting six CS:GO maps to Source 2
A group of data miners has discovered that over the past months, several well-known CS:GO developers have been involved in porting maps to the Source 2 engine, user Aquarius shared his observations on his Twitter.
Data miners drew attention to the maps with "s2" at the end of the names found in the code. These six maps are Shoots, Italy, Inferno, Lake, Overpass and Shortdust.
Rumors about the porting of CS:GO to Source 2 first appeared in 2017 and since then insiders and data miners have repeatedly found indirect evidence of the game being ported to a new engine. All this time, Valve did not comment on its work.
According to the latest information provided by insider Tyler McVicker in early June, CS developers continue to port the game to Source 2. The source added that once the developers introduce a new engine, the shooter will be divided into two versions, one of which will run on Source and the other on Source 2.
