When is the next CS:GO operation?

The operations are a series of timed event updates that Valve, the game's developer, periodically adds to CS:GO. New weapon skins, maps, game modes, and challenges are typically included in the operations, which players may accomplish to gain access to premium cosmetics and the operation medal to display in their profile.

The overall duration of the operations is typically two to three months, and a portion of Valve's profits are given to the writers who created the skins and maps used in the operation. While some of the operation's content may be played for free, a battle pass is required to fully experience CS:GO.\

Operation Payback, the first operation in CS:GO, debuted in 2013, and ten more operations were added by the developers in the following months: Operation Bravo (September 2013 to February 2014), Operation Phoenix (February 2014 to June 2014), Operation Breakout (July 2014 to October 2014), Operation Vanguard (November 2014 to March 2015), Operation Bloodhound (May 2015 to October 2015), Operation Wildfire (February 2016 to July 2016), Operation Hydra (May 2017 to November 2017), and Operation (September 2021 to February 2022).

When is the next CS:GO operation?

When Valve will add a new operation to CS:GO is currently unknown. Since the last operation, Operation Riptide, ended in February 2022 and there haven't been any new operations since then, it's likely that Valve will add a new operation sometime during 2023 because the majority of the amount of players enjoys the content of operations because they get to try out new maps and purchase new skins.

New CS:GO operations are often announced by Valve via the game's Twitter account as well as in blog post on the game's official website. Every time information on a new CS:GO operation is made public.
