First spotted by Valve insider Gabe Follower and shared via their Twitter account, a new update for Dota 2 includes several references to CS:GO on Source 2 in its code, including everything from Spray Kits to maps. Better yet, a quick trip to the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive page on SteamDB will reveal a large number of depots have been added, three of which reference DLC.
