Update: VALVE ANNOUNCES COUNTER-STRIKE: GLOBAL OFFENSIVE (CS: GO)



Next Gen Console, PC, and Mac Release Targeted for Early 2012



August 13, 2011 - Valve, creators of best-selling game franchises (such as Counter-Strike, Half-Life, Left 4 Dead, Portal, and Team Fortress) and leading technologies (such as Steam and Source), today announced Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO).

Targeted for release via Playstation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, and Steam (for PC and Mac) in early 2012, CS: GO will expand upon the team-based action gameplay that it pioneered when it was launched exactly 12 years ago (CS beta 1, August 1999).

CS: GO features new maps, characters, and weapons and delivers updated versions of the classic CS content (de_dust, etc.). In addition, CS: GO will introduce new gameplay modes, matchmaking, leader boards, and more.

"Counter-Strike took the gaming industry by surprise when the unlikely MOD became the most played online PC action game in the world almost immediately after its release in August 1999," said Doug Lombard, VP of Marketing at Valve. "For the past 12 years, it has continued to be one of the most-played games in the world, headline competitive gaming tournaments and selling over 25 million units worldwide across the franchise. CS: GO promises to expand on CS' award-winning gameplay and deliver it to gamers on the PC as well as the next gen consoles and the Mac."

CS: GO is being developed by Valve in cooperation with Seattle-based Hidden Path Entertainment. The title is targeted for release in early 2012 and will be playable at this year's PAX Prime and London Games Festival.

It isn't the next CS by any stretch of the imagination. It's a console game that they've decided to do on the PC as well.

All I'm saying is don't get your hopes up for some amazing new game. Its what cs on the original xbox was for cz.

/non sequitur prompted by Cliffe appearing

EDIT: Someone on the Reddit Q&A page asked this: "Does the game resemble CounterStrike 1.6 or Source more?"
Being that resemblance means looks more than anything, I'm sure they want to use GoldSrc for this one, or at least try to make it look 12 years old.

Well, I usually do not get excited because most video games are used up to milk it after the successor. Although even if the new cs fails we still have both 1.6 and css which I still haven't gotten bored yet. I'm not a graphics person, but interested in how everything is going to look.

Sorry about that I thought the second line was from you! Use [quote] tags at least.

Well if it does have a mission-bot base that friends can hop in. I'm perfectly fine with that. Even though CS is mostly for competitive players and would never fight bots but its a good start.
