Earlier this morning we reported that the popular CS franchise has moved developers once again, now Randy Pitchford "programmer" at Gearbox Software updated his .plan file
with some more information regarding the development of Counter-Strike: Condition Zero. Here is the full update:
Gearbox Software suspended development of Counter-Strike: Condition Zero in July of 2002. Counter-Strike: Condition Zero introduces single player gaming to the world's #1 online action game. Valve Software has overseen development since July. Gearbox is aware of and endorses Ritual Entertainment's involvement. After developing several Half-Life games, Counter-Strike: Condition Zero, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3 and James Bond 007: Nightfire, Gearbox Software is refocusing its efforts on future technology and more interesting and innovative game play. Gearbox Software will be discussing Halo: Combat Evolved for the PC and our vision for the future of interactive entertainment at The CPL's December 2002 event in Dallas, Texas.

Jimbo from Termite Games posted up some information on P3INT forum
about a new patch v1.3 they currently working on for New World Order. Here is a clip:
1.3's main fix is memory usage and performance. Our main goal with 1.3 is that we will give the players on the minimum specs of 256 megs of ram (a 3Ghz p4 w/ GF4 doesn't really help if ram is on minimum specs) a smooth gameplay experience, just like the 512 meg users. The memory compression that we've done now also boosts performance for all that have used 512 megs of ram so far.
The 2nd goal of 1.3 is to improve networking.
The 3rd goal is to improve stability in multiplayer games. We have located and fixed several issues in the spectator-mode code.
