As you know, the game engine in question was added to DOTA 2 in 2015. At the same time, Half-Life: Alyx, which debuted last year, was also released with the same game engine.
Now, the game engine in question is expected to be added to CS: GO, which was presented to the players in 2012. Of course, it is currently unknown whether the source code included in the DOTA 2 update points to the new Source 2 engine for CS: GO. However, in the latest shared reports, it has been stated that Valve has been spending a lot of time for the game engine that will come to Counter-Strike Global Offensive and the aforementioned graphics update will be released as soon as possible.
