Counter Strike: Global Offensive in Development for Linux
No ETA on how long it’ll take, according to Gabe Newell.
Linux users: In case you thought Valve had abandoned you – which is hilarious, considering their Linux-based SteamOS – then take reprieve because Counter Strike: Global Offensive will be heading to the OS.
This was confirmed by Valve Software boss Gabe Newell in his recent Reddit AMA – the same AMA where he pretty much removed all doubt of us ever seeing a new IP from the developer any time soon.
Concerning Global Offensive for Linux, Newell, “It’s being worked on but we don’t have an ETA.”
Which is pretty much par the course for a Valve title.
Counter Strike: Global Offensive of CS:GO for short is still very much alive with constant updates by the development team and availability on PC, Mac, Xbox 360 and PS3. A Linux version feels over-due at this point, but it’s never too late for Valve, right? Let us know what you think of CS:GO on Linux in the comments below.
