Counter-Strike: Global Offensive map makers make $150,000 through Operation Payback

Since launching back in April, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive’s map pack of community-made levels, Operation Payback, has made the developers a cool $150,000 to split between themselves. That’s more than $20,000 each.

The news came via the game’s twitter feed:

The current run of Operation Payback is due to end on 31 July. I’ve not been able to find anything suggesting what will happen next, whether Valve already have another seven maps lined up to release or whether there will be a voting process, or if this will act as a one-off experience (unlikely).

Whatever the case, Payback has been a great success and shows that Valve are looking for more ways to reward the folk who create content for their games.

Cheers, PC Gamer.
