CS:GO fans have been returning to the much-loved game to give Danger Zone a try, and people have found something very interesting in the update…



A series of computers were found in the game, and it caused a bit of a frenzy within the Valve community as people speculated whether or not it meant a new Portal game might be coming.

A Portal-related code was uncovered in the game, hidden behind Room 3 of the in-game motel, and suddenly everyone believed it meant a Portal ARG is in the works.

As more and more CS:GO and Portal fans asked the Danger Zone devs what the references were all about, the official CS:GO account had to respond to the frenzy.
