Minh Le, the co-creator of the original Counter-Strike
, has announced that he has begun working on a brand new game after leaving Valve and rejecting plans to make Counter-Strike 2
Working with a small team based out of South Korea, Minh told IGN
that he had begun to work on designing a new game, dubbed Tactical Intervention
As you'd expect from the name, Tactical Intervention
looks to be another military-themed shooter, but one which hopes to build on the lessons learned from Counter-Strike
and incorporate features that were culled from early versions of CS
"I enjoyed Counter-Strike,
" Minh said, "but I wanted to have my own game. I was never able to put in all the cool features I wanted because the people who played Counter-Strike would [complain] about all the changes. They liked the game as it is.
Long-time fans of CS
will remember that there were lots of features that made brief appearances in early betas, such as the oft-discussed vehicles and driving missions. While these have yet to be confirmed for Tactical Intervention
, we do know that the game will be a team-based multiplayer affair that pits terrorists against 'agents' and that the game will include large crowds of civilians and even attack dogs.
There's little other information announced about Tactical Intervention
, but we do know it'll be a PC-exclusive release and will apparently be ready by the end of the year.
