The massive success that Dota 2 has enjoyed with its International tournament could be applied to Counter-Strike, Erik Johnson has said.

Speaking in an interview with, he said that there was potential for the Counter-Strike team to borrow from the ideas that made The International so successful.

The guys working on Counter-Strike made a lot of progress on supporting the professional community around that game.

We all work at the same company and share a lot of ideas, and given how successful [Dota 2’s] tournament has become I don’t see any reason why a lot of the same things couldn’t be applied directly to Counter-Strike.

For the moment however, Valve has nothing to announce, he said.
