New Counter-Strike game to be announced today?

'Counter-Strike: Global Offensive' chatter tips Valve reveal

Valve will announce a new Counter-Strike game today called Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, if talk from names claiming to be close to the project are anything to go by.


E-Sports Entertainment, a game community tool and anti-cheat tech provider posted on its Facebook page the message; "Counter-Strike: Global Offensive...More info in the morning" three hours ago.

The message comes along with a picture of ESEA's Craig Levine at Valve's studio, apparently there to help develop the game.

As if that wasn't enough, Valve's own Jess Cliffe teased a group of speculating fans on the Steam message boards simply by repeating the words "Global Offensive."

There are still no solid details about what Global Offensive is, with some speculating that it will be a console version of the PC release.

Valve's Gabe Newell was evasive when asked about the possibility of Counter-Strike 2 at GDC earlier this year. If all that's been said is true, however, it seems we won't have to wait much longer to for an official Counter Strike announcement, even if it isn't a direct sequel.
