Operations in Counter Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) are some of the biggest events that grace the Valve superstar title every year. However, Valve is very secretive about them up until close to release. Valve usually only releases a few of these events per years, as each operation lasts for multiple months, with usually months long breaks in between each one of these large scale events.
When is the Next CS:GO Operation in 2021?
Operation Broken Fang ran from Dec. 2020 to April 2021. With a five-month runtime, it is not expected for the next Operation release to be anytime soon. There has been no information yet on when a new large scale event will occur either.
Fans of the game were hoping that Valve would release something alongside CS:GO's ninth birthday, but nothing of the sort happened. Now the hope of longtime players is that with the next major coming soon, news will come along with its' broadcast.
Only time will tell, but as CS:GO begins to lose players, both professional and casual to the likes of Valorant and battle royale titles, Valve has to work on some content to bring its base back to the now nine-year-old game. Many fans believe new content along with an Operation may do that, but as of now it seems like any drastic updates like that are a still a ways away.
