Insider: Valve is interested in renaming the "terrorists" and "counter-terrorists" teams

Insider Tyler McVicker in a video on his YouTube channel shared a rumor about Valve's interest in changing the terms "terrorist" and "counter-terrorist" because of their negative connotations. He spoke about it during a discussion of a possible porting of CS:GO to the new Source 2 engine.

It is also rumored, and I'm being serious, that Valve is interested in renaming the teams from "terrorists" and "counter-terrorists" to something completely different. They've been wanting to do that for a while.

Earlier, various members of the professional CS:GO community have repeatedly spoken out about the possible renaming of such definitions as "terrorist" and "bomb". This is believed to help make the game more palatable to potential sponsors.
