If you were wondering whether Counter-Strike 2 will be on Xbox Series X, don’t worry , we’ve got you covered.

Counter-Strike 2 is the latest update in the Counter-Strike series. It was announced on March 22, 2023 and has got gamers very excited for what the update will bring. The CS2 twitter team themselves have highlighted the new smoke grenade feature with smoke that will ‘interact with the environment’. Also advertised is the ‘cleaner, brighter, better’ visuals.

Ahead of the upcoming release (promised for this summer), Valve have released a Limited Test version of Counter-Strike 2 available for selected players. So with all of the hype around the new update, it’s no wonder that gamers are now wondering if the udpate will be availble to play on Xbox Series X.

Let’s have a look at what we found.

Will Counter-Strike 2 be on Xbox Series X?

In short, we don’t think so.

While anything could happen in the future with the final version of the update still unreleased, the Limited Test version is currently available to select players for download. Unfortunately, the Limited Test version is only available for Windows and is not compatible with Xbox Series X.

We think this makes it pretty unlikely that the full version will be. That being said, Valve themselves have stated that the Limited Test ‘only evaluates a subset of Counter-Strike 2’s features, so that major issues can be resolved before the summer.’

So we can certainly hope that the full version could provide Xbox compatibility, as nothing has been specifically mentioned at the time of writing by Valve themselves, we think it’s unlikely.
