- There have been reports that Valve has made changes to seven maps in CS:GO that are not yet available;
- According to the players, this heralds the appearance of a new operation;
- There are also reports of CS:GO profile's activity on Twitter, with one response suggesting that the Mirage map has been modified.
Some time ago, we were reporting about the launch date of a new operation in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. We haven't received any official information from Valve so far, but it seems that preparations for the unannounced update are still ongoing. Twitter user NorS2021, well known in the CS community, reported a few hours ago that the code of several maps has changed (this is checked by the availability of older versions in Steam workshop), which according to the players is supposed to herald an upcoming update.
The changes were made to seven maps (Mirage, Inferno, Overpass, Nuke, Train, Vertigo, and Dust 2), and gamers point out that they probably don't concern things like Holiday decorations, because the game code was changed, not the appearance of the locations. It is possible that it actually has some connection to the 10th operation and the tasks or modes that would appear within it.
Attention was also drawn to the activity of the game's official profile on Twitter - in response to the ironic entry of a former professional CS player, a gif from the PV of Welcome To The Jungle by Guns N'Roses was added. Reddit users concluded that this is the announcement of a rewrite of Mirage (which was rumored to have been done some time ago), because that's where a place called "Jungle" can be found.
Undoubtedly, many gamers are waiting for official confirmation of recent leaks and guesses. The last operation appeared at the end of 2019, so we can say that it's high time for Valve to surprise the players with something completely fresh after a year of waiting.
