Just when the CS:GO community were losing hope about the heavily speculated ‘Operation 10’ which was supposed to come out last month update for seven CS:GO maps detected earlier today has added fuel to the dying fire.
As reported by CS:GO insiders ‘Nors3’ and ‘Gabe Follower’ multiple CS:GO maps are about to receive some sort of an update as ‘Compatibility Version 126.96.36.199’ is detected within the ‘CS:GO OFFICIAL’ Steam account’s workshop items. This basically points towards an upcoming update of the seven maps as the one on the workshop always remains one version behind the updated version that is meant to be released.
Upcoming CS:GO Map Update Points Towards Operation 10
December could not have started on a better note as some major hints have been obtained about upcoming map updates which have sparked off discussions about these upcoming changes being related to ‘Operation 10’. ‘Compatibility Version 188.8.131.52’ for the following seven CS:GO maps was detected within CS:GO’s official Steam account’s workshop page,

What this basically means is that these seven CS:GO maps are about to receive an update shortly, maybe even tonight as CS:GO has been actively responding to Tweets on a Tuesday! However, it is still not known what these updates are and will only be revealed once these upcoming updates go live.
The community is busy speculating that these upcoming map changes are related to ‘Operation 10’ as Valve might be releasing the rumored 1v1 game mode or the survival co-op missions which are part of the upcoming operation according to Valve News Network (VNN).
Some others however do not think these updates are related to 'Operation 10' and believe it to be just a seasonal update that includes various Christmas decorations for the seven maps which includes festive lighting, piles of snow, chicken makeover, snowballs, and other such themed features.
It will be interesting to see whether these changes lead to stuff about the upcoming ‘Operation 10’ or does it all just boil down to a festive makeover for the seven maps, all of which are part of the ‘Active Duty Map Pool’.
