Counter-Strike: Global Offensive in August

Valve announces Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is planned for release on August 21st for Windows, OS X, PlayStation Network, and Xbox LIVE Arcade at the same price of $15.00 across the board:

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) is targeted for release on August 21, 2012.

To be available via the Playstation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, and Steam (for PC and Mac), CS: GO will expand upon the team-based action gameplay pioneered when Counter-Strike was launched almost 13 years ago (CS beta 1, August 1999).

CS: GO will be sold for approximately $15 on all platforms.

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

Developed by Valve in cooperation with Seattle-based Hidden Path Entertainment, the title will be playable in the Sony and Microsoft booths this week at E3 in Los Angeles, CA.

So in other words this is CS:S 1.5?

Been waiting for CS2 for a long time...

I dunno about that... In terms of leaps I'd say it's roughly equal to the change from 1.6 to Source. Even though it's the same engine they've redone the weapons from the ground up and greatly improved the netcode/registration (for lack of better technical insight).

CS2 isn't coming... They'd have to call it something different if they wanted to make a leap that big without alienating a majority of the current players. CoD releases a new game every year and really hasn't changed much since MW4 whereas CS has 3 major versions in roughly a decade running concurrently and each have their own distinct feel while still remaining CS. Had we gone from CS 1.6 to CS:GO nobody would have a problem with calling it CS2.
