Despite opposition from the likes of Overwatch, Fortnite, and Rainbow Six: Siege, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive remains one of the world’s top competitive multiplayer games – so it may be surprising to learn that the game’s next DLC expansion may include co-operative missions.

This is according to various datamines and leaked data cultivated by YouTube user Tyler McVicker on the Valve News Network. McVicker’s latest video reveals two new maps coming to the game – Import and Grind – and some additions to the code, since the recent UI update in April, that strongly suggest that a co-operative mode called Co-op Strike is coming to CS:GO.

The strongest evidence is for the two new maps coming in Counter-Strike’s “operation 9”, whatever it may be called. These two maps are supposedly called Import and Grind, and are described in a leaked resume for a contract artist on CS:GO – whose name is being withheld to protect their identity. This artist worked on other DLC maps, including Blackgold, Junction, and Studio – all of which have shipped – but mentions two that haven’t, and are still due to come.
