Shroud believes CS:GO to get major Source 2 overhaul in response to Valorant

Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek has shared his thoughts on how Valve will response to the release of Valorant
With Valorant in its closed beta phase, Valve finally has some real competition for CS:GO in the tactical shooter esports arena. Popular CS:GO streamer, Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek, has weighed in on how Valve might respond to Valorant in a recent stream on Mixer.

Rumours have been floating around about CS:GO on Source 2, as both Dota 2 and Half-Life: Alyx using the new engine from Valve. CS:GO, however, still remains on the original Source engine. 

On his Mixer channel, Shroud talked about the possibility of CS:GO moving over to Source 2:

“Tyler told me that he thinks that this summer Source 2 is gonna come out and CSGO is gonna go through a huge overhaul. And that would make sense because Valorant plans to come out in summer, right?”

We expect Tyler who Shroud is referring too is his friend, and ex-teammate from Cloud9, Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham. There could very well be some insider knowledge going around, but please remember to take this with a grain of salt until such time as Valve officially reveals a CS:GO overhaul with Source 2.

Shroud continued to explain how smart Valve is with their updates, and new content, talking about what happens when Valve gets competition:

"Valve is so smart, they only update, they only do sh#t when they only have to. For years and years and years Counter-Strike was just smooth sailing, no competition. Now that there’s competition, woo, they’re making updates. That’s good. I like that because we’ll see something new in Counter-Strike, which is cool."

It remains to be seen if Valve will actually overhaul CS:GO with a Source 2 update. For those in the UK, "this summer" is wintertime, which means we might not have to wait that long for possible news from Valve.
