    They have added a steam listing for this: CS:GO

    Surprising this is that it seems like its almost ready. They are saying that it will be playable at PAX Prime event next week.

    Also, it coming for the consoles too and as suggested in some of the articles, even I feel Valve is directly targeting COD with this.

    More info -

    The team-based shooter is targeting Steam (PC and Mac), PlayStation Network, and Xbox Live Arcade for early 2012. CS: GO (as it's being called) is being developed at Valve with help from Hidden Path Entertainment, a Seattle studio that cut its Counter-Strike teeth lending a hand on Source updates.

    The new game promises new maps, characters, and weapons along with updated versions of classic Counter-Strike content -- "de_dust" is mentioned specifically. Plus we'll see new modes, matchmaking, and leaderboards.

    The game will be playable at PAX Prime later this month, and then at the Eurogamer Expo 2011 in September.

    We still haven't seen any gameplay videos. Considering Source Engine is a bit outdated compared to other game engines, I wonder how the graphics will be.

    But anyway I suppose we'll still be getting a huge jump from CSS in terms of graphical quality :D

    It will be based on the L4D2 engine, which is modified Source. And there is almost no recoil. Three new guns. Fresh armor every round. AK costs more. "Tweaked" money system. From the link above.

    Btw, whatever happened to CS Promod?

    No recoil ! WTF!!

    This is gonna destroy the originality in the game, it should be there... (keeping fingers crossed !)

    May be an option would be provided with less recoil

    This should settle the controller vs mouse+kb debate. Looking forward to this...

    Dude, didnt you read... PS3 version will also have mouse+KB support!! No idea if they would use it though. Console players would probably be sitting on a couch some distance away from the TV. What would they keep the mouse/kb on?
