Counter-Strike Global Offensive - confused soldier in suburbia

CS:GO should be with us come summer, according to Valve, giving us a bit of time to train our mouse hand muscles and hone our twitch headshot skills before inevitably suffering repetitive death at the hands of seasoned CS 1.6 pros on release. Those pros can’t touch console bros, though. Valve’s Chet Faliszeck yesterday told Joystiq cross-platform play is gone from CS:GO. Awww.

There’s a good reason, though. “The beta has proved we want to update not just the beta, but the game itself post-launch frequently on the PC,” Faliszeck told Joystiq, “To do that we need to separate the platforms so one doesn’t hamstring the other. So for that, we have removed the idea of cross-platform play — essentially make all platforms stronger by not mixing them.”

Seems fair. It’ll mean more updates for us PC players, most likely. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is currently in beta. You can complete a Steam survey for a chance to claim a spot ahead of release.
