The Counter-Strike community in recent days has been speculating more than ever about the possible initial release date of CS2. Let’s remember that Valve has confirmed that the release of the new title will arrive in the summer, which means that the big day we are all waiting for is getting closer and closer.
The possible release date of Counter-Strike 2
At the moment, all social networks are full of speculation and many questions. The limited beta phase of Counter Strike 2 continues to receive improvements, and some players are wondering when it will end. However, after much research, some community members have discovered a possible release date for Counter-Strike 2, and their curiosity inspires confidence.
After an important revelation by writer Richard Lewis, Counter-Strike fans have marked the game’s release between August and September at the latest. Recall that this British reporter, earlier this year, revealed for the first time the arrival of the Counter-Strike 2 beta. In addition, Richard Lewis has revealed that the game will be available in late August or early September. Given these claims by Richard Lewis, a large part of the community speculates a particular date. Specifically, some players think it will arrive on August 21.

August 21 may be the Counter-Strike 2 release date
Many people wonder why most speculators have thought that the possible release date for Counter-Strike 2 is August 21. Since this date is quite intriguing. Here is the answer to that doubt.
August 21 is a memorable date for Counter-Strike developers. It is a memorable day for Valve. That is why the community has this specific day marked on its calendar. August 21 serves as a reminder of another very important release for the developer, so it is not a random or casual choice of a date.
A few years ago, specifically on August 21, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) of 2012 was presented. That is why the community has suggested that CS2 could be released on that day as a tribute from VALVE.

Remember that Counter Strike 2 arrives to replace CS definitively:GO. This will mark a before and after for one of history’s most popular video games and esports.
While conspiracy theories continue to develop, Valve continues to work on the development of the new video game and continues to update the CS2 beta. Last Wednesday, August 2, a major update was released with the arrival of two new maps. And this has left only the Inferno map to be revealed. At the rate the updates are going, it seems very likely that the launch will be this coming August 21.
