Counter-Strike 2: Global Offensive for consoles (Xbox 360 and PS3 via Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network, respectively), PC and Mac promises to re-invent the multiplayer online PC shooter staple for a new generation. It will be released in early 2012!

Course, it’s not like Counter-Strike ever went everywhere, it’s as big now as it has ever been. But Valve will now be making a new push for Counter-Strike with CS:GO (the acronym for Counter-Strike 2).

  • Watch The Latest Gaming News:

  • Counter-Strike 2 is being developed by Hidden Path Entertainment (the developers who made hit Defense Grid), it will feature many new features including: “New maps, characters, and weapons,” on top of “updated versions of the classic CS content (de_dust, etc.),” as well as “new gameplay modes, matchmaking, leader boards, and more.”

    The game will be playable at the Penny Arcade Expo later this month where it will make it’s worldwide debut.

    The official announcement of Counter-Strike 2 follows tons of speculation and name-drops of the title on Facebook and the official Steam forums, as well as Twitter. As well as rumors that Valve had flied the top Counter-Strike community members from around the world to their Seattle, Washington-based HeadQuarters.

    So what do you think about opening up Counter-Strike, FINALLY, to console players?

    This video gives some of the history of Half-Life and Counter-Strike.

    • WOW!  so amazing  Counter-Strike 2

    • I know that i’ve played  a lot with armory games like counter strike, I never get bored about this game..But launching c.strike 2 is the best. I’m gonna make sure to have it!

    • I couldn’t stop playing this amazing game, counter strike 2 is totally amazing. The video was cool but I think it’s much better to see and play it in action! Very nice article!

    • Tho old counter-strike was already released for xbox. I’ve played the game since cs 1.6 and still play an hour or two a week. Gungame and zombie mod are what have kept me around the last few years. This will definitely be a pre-purchase for me if they release a version of hammer for it.

      Counter-strike: condition zero was available on xbow one in 2004-2005. I’m not sure why you’re saying it’s finally getting opened up to console players.
