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.
