Beta Plans for Counter-Strike: GO Have Stopped

As easy as it is to make puns right now, a bunch of CS 1.6 fans just got simultaneously super angry and sad.

There used to be an embeded media player here, but it doesn't work anymore. We blame the Tumbeasts.

There’s a little bit of rough news on the web for Counter-Strike fans today. In response to feedback by some of the most hardest of core (read: professional) Counter-Strike 1.6 players, Valve has decided to shelve the closed beta invites for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive for the foreseeable future. According to the developer, there’s still a lot of tuning and tweaking to be done before even a small section of the CS audience will get to thoroughly test it.

While this delay is unfortunate, it’s not wholly unexpected. Valve is well-known for being very particular with its release windows and beta phases. How this delay may affect the projected early 2012 release date for Counter-Strike: GO remains to be seen.
