Counter-Strike Online 2 started off as a online game based on Counter-Strike: Source by NEXON Corporation. During its development, some unused concepts for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive are reused in CSO2. For example, the character customation concept appeared in the early stage of the development of the CS:GO, and this feature is absorbed into the Counter-Strike Online 2.
Counter-Strike Online 2's engine has been ported to Source of a newer version in Summer 2017 along with the addition of a new UI, and Counter-Strike Online 2 was released in Japan at that time.
The game is implemented with lots of game modes based upon some popular community mods, and Nexon makes them as its official modes with more features.
