Of Course Valve Are Working On Half-Life 3, Now Shush

By John Walker on June 19th, 2013.

Every time a slip, leak or whisper emerges from inside the caverns of PC shop owners and former developers Valve, the gaming news press (us occasionally included) gets into a frothy frenzy at the mention of Half-Life 3. “Could this be evidence they’re working on it?!” everyone cries, tickling their own legs in excitement. OF COURSE THEY ARE! Of COURSE Valve is working on Half-Life 3! It’s not even vaguely feasible that they wouldn’t be! They’ve obviously been working on it, in some capacity, since HL2: Ep 2 came out.

Eurogamer spotted that Valvetime spotted that the Source Filmmaker script files contain “60+ references” to Source 2, making it distinctly possible that the new engine will be here sooner rather than later.
