Valve updated its Counter-Strike formula in 2004 with the release of Counter-Strike: Source, a new entry in the shooter franchise that Valve completely overhauled using its Source engine. Now, Valve is updating its franchise again, today announcing Counter Strike: Global Offensive. 

At the moment, there wasn’t much details we can go on to learn how the game would look like. So, to get more information on this title, it is best to ask from someone who thoroughly played the game, not a staff from Valve, but an average fan who also happened to loved first person shooter type of games.

Debuting in early 2012 on Steam (for the PC and Mac) Xbox Live Arcade, and PlayStation Network, Global Offensive features new game modes, weapons, maps, and characters to the franchise. This will mark the series' first appearance on XBLA and the PSN. 

Bastian is one of the luckiest man around to get his hands dirty on the new CS, speaking on Twitter, he said that he has tried the PC version of Counter Strike: Global Offensive and cast doubt if it can compete with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3 which are set to release later this year, “We only saw the pc version but you could tell that it will work on console. Question is if it can compete with COD and BF3…”

Additionally, gamers will be able to be able to fight on updated versions of original Counter-Strike maps including de_dust and others. Lastly, Global Offensive will support matchmaking and leaderboards

Valve also today shared new sales statistics for Counter-Strike. The publisher said that the Counter-Strike franchise--which debuted 12 years ago this month--has sold over 25 million units. Global Offensive is currently in development at Valve Software and Hidden Path Entertainment, which also codeveloped Counter-Strike: Source.  

However, there are seem to be divided opinions between the older generations of the franchise. The CS: GO in particular has been reported not to live up the expectations it can carry on from the previous reiteration of 1.6 Counter Strike. Even more, Valve has also allegedly did not get help from the 1.6 experts before building up the game.
“Just don’t get that wrong. This is NOT gonna be CS2… Like what you would might expect…” Bastian argued.
Counter Strike: Global Offensive is due for a release next year on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
