CS:GO SDK Launching Three Months After Game
During an interview with Valve’s Gabe Newell on the Seven Day Cooldown podcast, it was mentioned that the software development kit for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive would be launching about three months after the game.
Seeing as how CS: GO doesn’t exactly have a pinned release date just yet, it can’t be said for sure when you can expect to go messing around with the game’s inner workings. But when we do receive word of a release date, just add three months – simple enough.
If you’re unfamiliar with the SDK acronym, it’s simply a downloadable package that allows owners of the game to create their own maps and mods for the game. If you have questions, they can likely be answered by Mike Durand, Valve employee in charge of development of the CS: GO SDK.
And if you’d like to hear more from Mr. Newell himself, give the SDC podcast a listen – it’s actually pretty darn interesting.
The host asks a lot of booooooring DOTA 2 questions, so you’ll have to slog through that part first…meh.
