Valve Thanks for 10 Years of CSGO and Declares it is Just the Beginning

The tenth anniversary of CS:GO is a time for summarizing and giving thanks. Valve has already released an anniversary update, and now announced that the first decade „is just the beginning” for Global Offensive.

Yesterday marked ten years since August 21, 2012, when the world finally got to see Counter-Strike: Global Offensive in its full glory.

The tenth anniversary of the word's most popular shooter has been celebrated for quite some time; we got a birthday update, which, among other things, introduced the long-awaited Tuscan map, and players are looking for easter eggs pointing to the anticipated implementation of the Source 2 engine.

Happy birthday, CS:GO!

There was no shortage of acknowledgements, but perhaps the most noteworthy were those from the developers, which leave open room for interpretation.

Anniversary wishes from ValveSource: Twitter - CS:GO

On Twitter, Valve thanked players for 10 years of shared gameplay and countless memories, and announced that "this is just the beginning," wishing them another ten years.

Is there an actual plan behind the wishes to keep the game on top for another decade, or is it just a rhetorical figure? It's hard to judge, nevertheless the team behind CS:GO often "teases" news via social media.

Perhaps these words hide a pan to implement Source 2, which will bring Valve's shooter into a new era.

And while they may not be an announcement specifically of this solution, there is no denying that the development of CS:GO for the next 10 years sounds ambitious.
