Eurogamer is reporting from a community interview with Valve Software's Chet Faliszek that the 10,000 person closed beta test for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive -- originally scheduled for October -- has been delayed, explaining that there's more issues they need to work through with the small group of CS professionals before opening it up to a wider audience.
"They gave us a lot of feedback on things we should get in the game before we release it, otherwise we're going to be getting a lot of bug reports or a lot of feedback and it would just be redundant,"

""The biggest thing of those first 10,000 is we have to look at percentage of crashes. You can argue with us on bullet-spray patterns and all kind of things, but crashes? There's really no argument for that. It shouldn't be happening."
The studio is very much taking a "when it's ready" attitude to the game and although it was originally unveiled with an 'early 2012' launch window for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, they're committed to not releasing it until everyone thinks it's ready.
"We have no mandate from anybody of when we have to ship this. So we're more than happy to just keep working on this 'til it's ready to ship.

"By the end of this [the beta], everyone will be playing the game - it will be the released game that you're just playing. Then, at some point, we'll say, 'OK we're going to release it.'
The article goes further to explain that the eventual beta will include one or two maps, but the final game will feature 16 with eight classic maps and eight for the gun game mode. Deathmatch and Zombie game modes are also expected post-launch.

F*****g Valve. They make so much money off steam and can pretty much laze around making games nobody want or asked for.

We'll all be semi-f*****-retired by the time valve gets around to making HL3, between lack of financial or publisher pressure and valve time being double time for the rest of us I'm not holding my breath.

Yes, I too am disappointed when instead of taking their time to make a good, polished game that will probably endure for years and build on the already excellent goodwill they have for doing the same thing previously, developers and publishers rush to put out a new version every single year to take advantage of the willingness of gamers to continue to shell out money for terribad products with a limited lifespan

Looks like a re-skinned Counterstrike Source... not sure if it can live up to its ancestry, but Valve have never disappointed me before.

That's why there was such a huge outcry over left 4 dead 2. Not getting into a 2 year old argument but it really was just really "unvalve" like thing to do. I think if the l4d2 content had of been like a $15 DLC to the original game the community would be much more vibrant. Come to think of it I can't remember the last time I saw anyone playing either of the l4ds in my steam friends list.

waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, f*** valve for taking their time making sure a game is going to be good before they consider releasing it / beta it. Those c**** the nerve on them for making a game which people will actually want to keep playing rather then a yearly release which sucks balls.

Have YOU read the thread?
So far you're the only person to actually comment on not being interested in the game.
