TBS is going full-on into the world of esports, as Variety reveals that they’re going to air competitions of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive via a league of their own creation. With up to 20 events being aired throughout the year.
In case you didn’t hear the other day, an international Dota 2 championship tournament was held, with the winners getting millions of dollars (the total pot was $18 million). This proved emphatically the level of desire and skill in video game tournaments. Given it’s success, you’d think that more tournaments, especially ones with highly played titles, would be brought up as soon as possible. But for Valve, their second most played game, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, is still without a tournament.
Valve has just announced a brand new Counter Strike game titles Global Offensive. The game is set to release on PC and MAc on Steam and PSN and Xbox Live. No word whether or not the PSN version will have steam cross-play connectivity. The game is targeted for an early 2012 release.
