A Counter-Strike 2 operation seems to be coming! According to uncovered game files, Valve is working on a new twelfth operation.
The release of Counter-Strike 2 may be even more interesting than we thought, as Valve is most likely preparing a lot of new stuff. The latest news is that a new operation seems to be in the works.
Operations are timed event updates that are added to Counter-Strike every few months. Operations usually include new weapon skins, maps, game modes and challenges. After purchasing a pass, players complete tasks to then unlock exclusive cosmetic items.
New Operation In Counter-Strike 2
According to Counter-Strike 2 game files, Valve possibly plans a twelfth operation for the release. This is because the files indicate, as @GabeFollower specifies, a large number of new skins, new pins or new cosmetic items called "pets."
Huh? @CounterStrike beta just came out and devs already working on a new operation? Cause there's a lot of stuff related to OP12. Things like 3 new weapon collections: Counter-Strike, Pop Comic, Myth & Monsters. New pins (were teased in official CS2 video).

New Skin Collections
Game files indicate that Valve is planning three new skin collections named: Counter-Strike, Pop Comic and Myth & Monsters.
In the image above, we can see 43 new skins, including the M4A4 Chrome Fade or AK47 WildFire. They are beautiful, aren't they?

A new cosmetic item called "Pets" was also found in the files, suggesting skins for chickens or other pets we don't yet know may be added.

When Will The Operation Come Out
Despite the devs' reference to Gabe's leaks, we are still left with speculation. For one thing, the skin models shown are for weapon models still belonging to CS:GO, which means that we can expect this operation in the near future, although this is not certain.
Anyway, such a nice "opening" of a new phase in the Counter Strike world on the day of the official CS2 release in the summer would be a great idea.
Stay tuned for more details!
