Been waiting for CS2 for a long time...
I dunno about that... In terms of leaps I'd say it's roughly equal to the change from 1.6 to Source. Even though it's the same engine they've redone the weapons from the ground up and greatly improved the netcode/registration (for lack of better technical insight).
CS2 isn't coming... They'd have to call it something different if they wanted to make a leap that big without alienating a majority of the current players. CoD releases a new game every year and really hasn't changed much since MW4 whereas CS has 3 major versions in roughly a decade running concurrently and each have their own distinct feel while still remaining CS. Had we gone from CS 1.6 to CS:GO nobody would have a problem with calling it CS2.
