CS2 fan doubts
Right now, CS2 fans have a lot of doubts about the game. Some fans wonder whether there will be a relay in the competitive scene in Counter-Strike.

At the moment, it is unknown if cS2 will replace CS:GO immediately in esports, but it seems that not all professional players are excited about the takeover. Once the release of CS2 is made, the community will have to wait for an official announcement from Valve, where any details related to the competitive scene will be revealed.
