In an e-mail to HLTV.org, Valve has dismissed the report about a $1,6 million CS: Global Offensive tournament.
Last week, PCGames.cn reported that Counter-Strike: Global Offensive would be included in next year's The International 3 with a possible prize purse of $1,600,000.
Valve has previously held two successful The International tournaments for their upcoming game title DotA 2, both events having featured a staggering prize purse of $1,6 million dollars.
The report about Counter-Strike: Global Offensive being included into next year's The International 3 sparked a lot of excitement and immediately made the headlines.
Contacted by HLTV.org, Valve has now brushed off the report about a grand tournament for their newly released sequel, saying, "We haven't thought that far ahead."
The dismissal correlates with earlier statements by Valve. In May, Chet Faliszek said promoting the game within already existing leagues is the most important thing they can do for the community.
