Valve abandons cross-platform play for CS:GO

by | @AttackFanboy | on March 6, 2012

One of the big features that got Counter Strike fans excited about the upcoming title was the announcement that players would do battle across the PC, Mac, and PS3 for multiplayer affairs.  Unfortunately, Valve has scrapped this functionality from Counter Strike: Global Offensive.  Valve’s Chet Faliszek relayed the message to Joystiq in a recent interview.

Faliszek explained that “The beta has proved we want to update not just the beta, but the game itself post-launch frequently on the PC.  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.”

Valve announced yesterday that Counter Strike: Global Offensive would launch out of beta this summer
