This new date tease comes after Valve promised that CS2 would launch in the summer of last week. Before this statement, the only official word about the CS2s launch was from the original beta announcement. This said that the game would be coming out in summer. Since the original announcement, more players have been making the CS2 ecosystem easier by launching multiple invite waves for the limited test.

As long as the player base is finally satisfied, the full launch of CS2, like the upcoming Counter-Strike era, should start officially, as many tournament organizers have said, the next era is on the ground for an update to the game. If teams launched next week, they would have approximately 5 months to compete for the first CMA at PGL Copenhagen. Six months before the competition starts.
