As rumor confirmations go, this one’s pretty quick. Valve just issued a press release announcing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, a standalone release that seems to be a full update of Counter-Strike: Source with new weapons, maps, matchmaking, leaderboards, and more. No screenshots have been released, but from Valve’s language, it seems like more of an “anniversary edition” of CS:S that dresses up the existing content than a full-on sequel. CS:GO will also be released on Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network. Read the full press release within.

Update—Craig Levine, co-founder of the ESEA, has posted a lengthy write-up based on hands-on time with CS:GO. Within: weapon balancing changes, decoy grenades, a new heavy MG, molotovs, and holy hell they made the AK more expensive. Read it. (Thanks to Slasher for the link.)

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.

What sucks is for the past 3 years we have had the ability to run all the free servers we want, not anymore. Anyone who wants to pay for a CS:GO server and set it up, has my approval to run it as a splak server (as long as everyone else approves too).

I really hope they do something with the game, CS:S was too weak in gameplay (same game, just better engine).

Fuuuuu. i Literally just came back to post something about the server. After thinking about it, I realized that we dont have free server space anymore :( Cole beat me to it. If the game is nice and it looks like it might bring alittle more action back into Splak, I'd be down to pitch in for a server.

i have quite a bit of money now so i can definitely throw down some money, only thing that i hate is that it sounds like an anniversary edition of CS:S, i REALLY disliked CS:S, so i'm REALLY hoping it's not like that, oh please god....no matter what though, i'll play again, i miss that game, it was my all time favorite, so i'll play it when everyone else starts to play it....i miss scrimming :(

If CS:GO is just a updated CS:S, then I know what I won't be buying. Boy do I hate EA (and origin), but BF3... take my money.

So, according to these guys, it has a LoL style queuing system? Fuck that, if you can't freely join/leave a server with more space than just 5 people per team then i'm not gonna buy this shit. That would completely ruin the game in my opinion.

There's supposed to be a trailer today on spike tv on CS:GO. Hopefully it will show us some gameplay or at least an interview on the developers talking about what they are bringing to the table.
