Something weird just happened. Latest NVIDIA drivers introduced support for unknown app executables called "csgos2.exe" and "cs2.exe". Why project is called Counter-Strike 2 and what are you cooking @csgo? https://t.co/U9YKlAjwgy pic.twitter.com/PU8Op9uGLq

The photos linked to the tweet showed the executable file for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive with the name “csgos2.exe, cs2.exe” in the Nvidia driver’s game profiles. Gamers have been clamoring for a sequel since Valve’s evergreen blockbuster celebrated its 10-year anniversary.
What’s really intriguing here is that these two executables, as well as the game profile, are entirely new. This profile was not available in previous versions of the NVIDIA drivers. Thus, this appears to be a legitimate leak.
According to the newest Nvidia driver update, a new game profile called “Counter-strike 2” has been included. It cannot, however, be discovered immediately on the device since the Nvidia drivers only display the profiles of the apps that have been installed.
The new game profile is said to have entered the scripts with an Nvidia driver upgrade in February 2023.
We believe that this is the rumored Source 2 Engine remaster of CS: GO. After all, we’d have heard anything about such a massive project if it was a sequel to CS: GO.
The newest version of Valve’s gaming engine, Source 2, was revealed in 2015. It’s subsequently appeared in other Valve titles, including Dota 2 and Half-Life: Alyx.
There has been much conjecture regarding whether Source 2 would be released for CS: GO, with some players expecting a huge upgrade that will offer enhanced visuals, performance, and new features.
It will be fascinating to learn more about this “Counter-Strike 2” game because CS: GO right now boasts a staggering number of players from all around the world so it would be interesting to see where the franchise goes from here. For what it’s worth, Nvidia and Valve have yet to comment on this.
