Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Launches this Summer, No Cross-Platform Play

Category: Gaming
Posted: 08:15PM

This article contains some good news as well as some bad news. The good news is Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has a release window for this summer, letting gamers escape the heat with the new CS. The bad news is cross-platform play has been axed, which means now we will never find out the winning control scheme. Valve did put a positive spin on the drop of cross-platform play, saying the elimination will help the PC platform receive frequent updates after launch. Separate platforms mean any PC updates can be applied when Valve is ready, and not when Sony and Microsoft are ready. Valve says the game can be stronger on all three platforms now without any compromises, although I am sure some PC gamers will be sad to no longer have the chance to put console gamers in their place.

Definitely was hoping for cross-platform. FML. I know that's not the "hardcore CS" thing to do, but damn, cannot believe they nixed the idea.

We already know which control scheme is the winning one - they keyboard/mouse. Numerous studies and competitions have proven that.
