Counter Strike 2 on console would be a fantastic development for fans of competitive shooters. Considering the options, a PS5 or Xbox Series X|S platform release would make the most sense for Valve’s tactical FPS, especially considering that CS2 is an update to CS:GO, featuring updated visuals and effects, as well as new mechanics, in the Source 2 engine. Here, we answer if Counter Strike 2 is on console, including if it’s on PS5 and Xbox.
Counter Strike 2 on Console: Is CS2 on PS5 or Xbox? Answered
While trading a mouse and keyboard in for a controller would make any Counter Strike die-hard gnash their teeth and shake their fists, CS2 could do well on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, competing with the likes of Call of Duty and (hehe) Battlefield.
Is Counter Strike 2 on PS5?
So, will Counter Strike 2 release on PS5? At launch, there are currently no plans to release Counter Strike 2 on PlayStation 5 — or any PlayStation platform.
Is Counter Strike on Xbox Series X|S?
Unfortunately, the same can be said for Xbox platforms when it comes to CS2. There are currently no plans for Counter Strike 2 on Xbox Series X|S or Xbox One.
Though CS2 is the first new release in the Counter Strike franchise in 10 years, the highly-influential and popular CS: GO was never released on PS4 or Xbox One consoles, only making an appearance on PS3 and Xbox 360 way back in 2012.
Hopefully, that answers you questions about Counter Strike 2 on console, and whether it will be on PS5 or Xbox platforms. As of now, CS2 is only on PC through Steam.
