With all the excitement about the release of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, it'd be easy to forget that there's still existing versions of the game being developed.
It seems that the meeting in Seattle will not just be about this new iteration of Counter-Strike but will also feature a meeting about CS:S, supposedly later today.
While it isn't clear what the content of the meeting will be it's clear that Valve will be discussing the future of CS:S with the assembled players. Whether this is to reveal that it will be phased out, handed over entirely to Hidden Path, or completely overhauled it isn't clear.
We should know later exactly what has been said and you'll be able to read the thoughts of the players here on Cadred after the meeting has taken place.
In the meantime one of our inside men e-mailed us the following:
CS:GO isn't a replacement for CSS. It is going to be mainly aimed at the console market (Xbox and PS3) as a download (like bf1943 etc)
They have promised to continue support for CSS throughout the development of GO and we have nothing to worry about. Gabe is coming by today and will have more of a detailed discussion then.
