    The oft-delayed Counter-Strike 1.6, has gotten an unofficial release date through less than concrete means.

    It turns out that an employee of VALVe (identity confirmed to us through a scanned business card, this isn't just "he said, she said" or it wouldn't be posted), who shall remain nameless, dropped the bomb while visiting a German rice-rocket farm. To whom? Why, to benji, a poster of the SomethingAwful Forums which carried his account.

    "Don't quote me, but CS 1.6 should be out in about 2 weeks," said the VALVe employee, assuming benji painted an accurate picture. Well, trust goes out the window because benji did quote him and now I'm quoting him too. It's a tabloid story, but it's almost undoubtedly true.

    So there you go. We kind of have a CS 1.6 release date, placing the release of the latest CS update mere days after VALVe grabs some attention at E3 (mailbag) with Half-Life 2

    Anything based on the quake 1 engine is going to suck now, its time for them to move on. Even condition zero is based on the quale 1 engine. Quake 2 is already completely open source, so it wouldn't be that hard for them to work with that.

    Well, CS2 is comming up at the new HL2 engine, my guess is cs1.6 is just to bring out something, and to show some new things we can expect from them....

    well

    maybe, but we gonna defiently see a 1.7 soon, beacuse 1.7 and CZ is going to support each other. Btw. I've played 1.6 beta alot, and it seemed ok to me, the new GUI and weapons is actually usefull.

    It's all a big shame!!

    CS 1.6 isn't released cause they coded all the ex_ settings away...suddenly 99% of the community won't hit anything....Valve wants to earn money with this game so the community has to be as big as possible...

    F**king interp playaz!

    CS may not have the best graphics on the planet, but runs smooth as hell on any comp today and is very popular at my Xtreme LAN parties. Please, don't hate.

    I don't know why, but I just never was able to get into counterstrike. I've always preferred teamfortress classic over CS. They might as well call this patch CS 1.666 ;) Yes, I consider it that evil.
