Counter Strike: Global Offensive Confirmed For Early 2012 Release

Valve did a cool thing for the PlayStation 3 release of Portal 2 in offering players a free Steam copy of the game as well as cross-platform features like online play and voice chat. The company hopes expand that first effort with the release of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, bringing the same sort of functionality to the Xbox Live Arcade version of the game as well.

"The main thing is having Microsoft get comfortable with it and let us do it," Valve boss Gabe Newell told Eurogamer. The Xbox 360 is well-known within the industry for the extended certification process involving all things Live-related.

"Right now, there's a huge amount of updates and free content we've been able to deliver to people who have The Orange Box that we haven't been able to deliver to the Xbox because of the restrictions that have been placed on us on Xbox Live," Newell said. He hopes things can change before the release of CS:GO, as I'm sure many of us do as well.
