Gabe Newell Speaks: What About Counter-Strike 2?

If you could ask Valve big dog Gabe Newell any question, what would it be?

I'm sure we all have questions that we'd like to ask the heads of major design studios. Many of us would love to ask Shigeru Miyamoto what his next original game is, or would love to ask Tim Schafer who his favorite character was, and I'm sure some of us would probably like to ask Bobby Kotick if he actually has a soul.

At the Intel Extreme Masters professional gaming tournament (possibly the same event where Gabe gave away his Steam password), Intel VP Shmuel "Mooly" Eden had the chance to ask the Valve head honcho one question before he left the stage.

"When will you release Counter-Strike 2?"

Honestly, Gabe Newell's reaction is kind of adorable. He's clearly not prepared for that question in front of a crowd of thousands, and he manages to wave his hands and stammer a bit before saying that the company needed to ship Portal 2 and DotA 2 first. The more conspiracy-minded among you may note that he didn't say that a sequel to the wildly popular military FPS wasn't in the works, though.

Since, you know, it isn't like there's another beloved Valve title in desperate need of a long-awaited sequel or anything.
