Counter-Strike’s Portal Easter Egg is not teasing an announcement

Mike Harradence Updated on by

Valve head honcho Gabe Newell has confirmed that the Portal Easter Egg featured in Counter-Strike's Danger Zone mode is just that: an Easter Egg, nothing more. There's no game reveal planned, so don't get your hopes up.

NOW READ: Holiday Deals now live on Amazon & Best Buy. Big brands such as Lenovo and Samsung are also starting to offer Holiday discounts early, with many more to follow.

The Easter Egg in question is tucked away behind a locked door in room 3 of a motel, and features Portal-related code. Players wondered if this was a subtle way of confirming a new entry in the puzzled-based series is on the way, but apparently not.

The Counter-Strike Twitter confirmed that the whole thing is just a bit of harmless fun. If that wasn't enough, the founder of the Valve News Network chimed in with word that Newell himself has confirmed it is indeed just an Easter Egg. 

Oh well, it was a nice thought while it lasted, eh?
