Counterstrike Source: Global Offensive Is Upon Us

Quote from ESEA:

What can I say? It's been a long time coming! Just today news from the VALVe office has emerged as our own Craig "Torbull" Levine has taken the trip down to supposedly "help develop" the new version of Counter-Strike. Counter-Strike:Global Offensive (CS:GO). Is this VALVe reaching out to the community, recognizing the competitive community?

News first arrived about the new version on the ESEA.net Facebook Page, saying:

"Counter Strike: Global Operation... More info tomorrow!"

Jess Cliffe, one of the original creators of Counter-Strike, was seen posting on the SteamPowered forums, saying "Global Offensive."

Rumors:
Planned to be released Q1 2012
Focuses on 5v5 competition
Press release within 24 hours from VALVe
Plays on an updated source engine
Individual & Team rankings
New Guns added
New Grenades
Dust & Aztec major revamp
Spamming still viable
Ammo is free

If it's not on Origin, no sale for me. All my games are on Origin. I love John Riticello. Don't call him fat or he'll delay the release of Battlefield 3 by a year. Please don't call me a Frostbite Legion Member. You don't know EA. They saved PC gaming. PC gaming dying? Hello... Origin says hi.

Are you trying to turn this into another EA VS STEAM thread?

How can CS still be news?

I think it's news when the rumour is actually new, it's the second most played franchise on Steam even if it came out more than ten years ago.

Multiple people on /v/ from Valve said that a CSS sequel was close to being done. They also said Episode 3 was coming soon...

I wish Minh Le went back to Valve and was part of this. The main reason he left and got financed by a Korean company was because he felt that his vision of Counterstrike wasn't realized.

Tactical Intervention.
