Valve has announced Counter-Strike 2, “the largest technical leap forward in Counter-Strike’s history,” according to the games website, and immediately Twitter archaeologists are digging to find if there are any secrets.
One user, aquaismissing, shared two screenshots on Twitter. One shows a line of code with the mention of ‘other platforms etc’ and ‘mobile’, while the other shows a list of console commands with the mention of mobile as well.
Fellow Twitter user gabefollower corroborates these mentions, though they follow up with another tweet to temper expectations. “These strings and console commands may simply be leftovers from other games, but they are not exist [sic] in Dota 2 or the Aperture Desk Job. But they do exist in Dota Underlords and Artifact (games that were actually developed with iOS and Android in mind).”
So, the mentions of mobile may just be leftovers – and there’s little other evidence out there to say whether they are or aren’t. We’ll just have to wait and see whether a Counter-Strike 2 mobile port is possible – and while we wait, check out the Counter-Strike 2 trailer below.
