Here is Counter-Strike: Global Offensive’s cancelled Dust 2 map remake in Source 2 Engine

Valve News Network has shared a video, giving us a glimpse at the cancelled Dust 2 map remake of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive in the Source 2 Engine. While this remake was never officially announced, Valve News Network has a few different pieces of evidence that hint towards such a project.

Source 2 Engine was officially announced in March 2015 and the first game that uses it is DOTA 2. Artifact, the upcoming card-game from Valve, is also said to be using it. There were rumours that a new Left 4 Dead game or remake would be using it, however Valve has not announced anything yet. In January 2018, however, Gabe Newell revealed that Valve is working on some unannounced game that will be powered by this engine.

Still, this cancelled remake of the Dust 2 map is quite interesting. This video also features some in-engine screenshots from this remake, so be sure to watch it. Now since these screenshots were released in 2013, I’m pretty sure we won’t see this map released to the public. Unless of course one of Valve’s unannounced games is a new version of CS:GO.
