The article states counterstrike released a new game based on Srebencia. The company that made the game has nothing to do with the new "game." The mod is built from the game but not made by the people who made the game, it's made by other people.

Learn how to write first of all. Secondly, do you even know what Counter Strike is? There is no story to the game at all. No campaign. It is an online multiplayer game that pits 'Counter Terrorists' against 'Terrorists' in a versus match where the terrorists plant a bomb and the counter terrorists must defuse it. This has nothing to do with the people at Valve. This is one person who pays for a server and does what he wants with it. It isnt even a game. Its one game server among thousands in CS.
