CSGO Devs Testing Out New Maps ‘de_prime’ and ‘de_tuscan’

The highly anticipated revamped CS 1.6 map ‘de_tuscan’ has been in development for quite a while now. While the initial looks of the new version of Tuscan in CSGO were revealed last year, we had no further updates on the release date of the map since then.

Fortunately, some recent leaks suggest that the final release of Tuscan might just be on the horizon.

According to a Tweet from prominent CSGO leaker ‘Gabe Follower’, the developers of the shooter seem to have been busy testing out two new maps – Tuscan and Prime.

For the uninitiated, the new Tuscan is a revamped version of the original CS 1.6 map de_tuscan. It was a bomb defusal map and one of the most iconic maps in Counter-Strike history. The map had managed to take its place alongside other great maps of CS 1.6 like Inferno, Aztec, and the legendary Dust 2.

While Tuscan was discontinued from the series from the days of Source and was absent from CSGO, fan-made versions of the map still continued to rock the Steam workshop.

De_prime, on the other hand, seems to be a new Wingman map that might be released in a future update and replace one of the existing maps in the Wingman map pool.

The exact release date of Tuscan and Prime aren’t certain and haven’t been revealed by Valve at the time of writing, but there’s a decent chance that the new maps will land alongside the tenth-anniversary update of CSGO that will likely arrive on August 21, 2022.

Besides these maps, fans can also look forward to seeing a new sticker capsule featuring exclusive stickers from the CSGO10 sticker collection as a part of the update.
