In an interview with Valve, gaming website Kotaku was able to ask a few questions about the direction the new Counter-Strike: GO will take. Valve is pretty clear from the off that the new version of Counter-Strike in not a version 2 but an amalgamation of Source and Counter-Strike1.6.
CS: GO project lead at Valve Ido Magal explains that the new game will let everyone experience the fun of a five-on-five games, in which all players will be equally matched. the CS: GO game will be focusing on a narrow style of gaming rather than spanning multiple mods.
CS: GO will feature a number of classic maps with new weapons and different gaming modes with tweaks ranging from modified maps to a casual gaming mode that removes the need to worry about cash entirely.
Valve’s Chet Faliszek explains:
“A lot of Counter-Strike: GO is takingCounter-Strike: Source and Counter-Strike 1.6 and melding it into a product that every side likes and also expanding the base by putting it out on the consoles,” – “Whereas Counter-Strike 2, at least internally, we think about as something different.”
“We’re taking that competitive experience that’s very hard to organize in Counter-Strike: Source… We’ve taken that and let everyone experience the fun of a five-on-five [game] where everyone is equally matched. The product doesn’t span all of Counter-Strike. Counter-Strike is zombie mods and all these different things. This is more narrow.”
