The end of one operation, mid-year, is the perfect time for a new case.
Operation Broken Fang just ended, so naturally, Valve should be releasing something new to CS: GO soon. So far, we should not expect quick actions from the dev – although who knows, maybe the developers will want to surprise.
The most likely scenario is adding a case. According to the schedule, Valve has in the past added crates around the beginning, middle, and end of the year.

Looking at all this, the community itself concluded that May is the perfect month for a new case. Of course, this cannot be taken as confirmed, but it is very likely.
