Posted on October 31, 2011, Phil Owen Valve Delays Closed Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Beta
Eurogamer is reporting that Valve has delayed starting the closed beta for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive because of feedback received from professional counter-strikers who had been testing the game. The beta was supposed to begin his month, but now we just don’t know when it will begin, and here’s what Chet Faliszek says about what this means in regards to when you’ll get to play the game.
Eventually it will be open and everyone will be playing it; there will be no barrier to entry. We just need to keep building it slowly.
And then when does it end? When the community tells us. It ends when 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.
So, yeah, they’re on Valve Time. You’ll get to play when you get to play and not a moment sooner!
