Terminal was designed by Alexander Manilov while Gearbox Software was developing Counter-Strike: Condition Zero. A real life bus terminal, Port Authority in New York City, was used as inspiration when modeling the map though direct resemblance was avoided.
The map made its first media appearances in 2002, suggesting that Manilov started designing the map after being mostly finished with his other map, Pipeline.
