If you were wondering whether Counter-Strike 2 will be on PS5, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

Counter-Strike 2 will be the latest update in the Counter-Strike series. On March 22, 2023 Valve announced the update in a tweet. They promised the update would ‘overhaul…every system, every piece of content, and every part of the C-S experience.’ Now the new Counter-Strike 2 is available in Limited Test version for select CS:GO players, with the full version promised some time this summer. Exciting stuff for C-S. No wonder gamers are now trying to find out if Counter-Strike 2 will be available on PS5.

Let’s have a look at what we found.

Will Counter-Strike 2 be on PS5?

In short, we don’t think so.

The Counter-Strike 2 Limited Test is only available on Windows and Valve have not made any statement about any PS5 compatibility for the full version. This makes it unlikely that the full release will be available on PS5.

However, they have said 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 wouldn’t completely rule out the possibility, but as at the time of writing nothing has been confirmed regarding PS5 compatibility, we think it unlikely that Counter-Strike 2 will be available on PS5 when the full version is released this summer.
