Valve has announced an all-new entry in the insanely popular Counter-Strike series, called Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. The company says this new game, which will ship in early 2012, will expand on the team-based gameplay that Counter-Strike pioneered when it was launched 12 years ago. Yes, kids, it's been exactly 12 years since we first played Counter-Strike, and the series is still going strong. In the same year, we saw the release of games like Quake III: Arena, Kingpin: Life of Crime, Soulcalibur, and the first Unreal Tournament. Nowadays the others are considered classics, but mostly loaded up when you're feeling nostalgic, unlike Counter-Strike, which still maintains an active player community.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive will feature new maps, characters, and weapons, and will boast updated versions of classic CS content (de_dust, etc.). In addition, the game will introduce new gameplay modes, matchmaking, leader boards, and more. We'll have more on the game on Xbox.com as details surface. If you're going to PAX Prime in Seattle at the end of August, Valve says the game will be playable there.
The game is being developed on Valve in cooperation with Seattle's Hidden Path Entertainment, who's been working with Valve for some time on Counter-Strike: Source updates, and who developed one of the most popular tower defense games around the Xbox.com offices, the superb Defense Grid.
nice that is going to be fun to play
so is this officially Counter Strike 2? or is this just Counter Strike Source for a console?

El Mejor juego que juge ( la mejor jugabilidad de todos los fps)
I cant wait. My Clan the STO's(Suddenly Taken Over) was formed back on the 1st xbox playing counter strike. Cod kid's your time is over!!!
Honestly i'm getting it for PC for logical reasons, and i'm pretty sure it will have De_Dust, every Cs game has to have De_Dust lol.

Would that really work for CS:GO ? :]
I think people are forgetting that they have tried this before with normal xbox this isn't the first time they have tried to convert it to console. I hope it is going to be a good game It was additive on pc more than mwf for me.
