While the CSGO Asia Championships carries its legacy in the name, the organizers have revealed their forward-looking plans. According to reports, organizers have set their sights on Counter-Strike 2 as the potential platform for the tournament, provided the new iteration is officially introduced by then. This progressive approach exemplifies their dedication to ushering in a new era of Counter-Strike excellence.
