Under the name ‘Counter-Strike’ the message reads, “It’s a banner. Nothing More. Promise.”

Since then, the CSGO Twitter account has updated the banner to simply read as just Counter-Strike with blue and orange colors.

Other CSGO fans did some digging and noticed that back in June CSGO social media channels used similar language regarding a recent blog post.

As of now, it’s hard to tell if these are all just elaborate jokes or something to be monitored for a larger announcement. It’s possible CSGO could be rebranding to simply ‘Counter-Strike’, or a full shift over to Source 2.
