Counter Strike: Global Offensive recently got its first real update in a long time – Danger Zone – a battle royale mode which promises “tactical gameplay” in a “fight to the finish.”
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.
Hey, you probably got lots of messages about this but people are freaking out over the portal easter egg in blacksite, thinking it’s another ARG like the one from Portal 2.
It would be really nice if you could at least tell us if it’s nothing or worth looking into.

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.
Unfortunately, it’s not good news for Portal fans, as the reference has been confirmed to be nothing more than an Easter egg.
Congrats to all who have found our Portal Easter egg on dz_blacksite! We’re just having a bit of fun and the Easter egg is not a product announcement. Enjoy Danger Zone!
