The lights are on
File names and icons for Valve's unannounced next-generation game engine Source 2 were reportedly discovered in Source Filmmaker, the new movie-making program.
Website Valvetime.net discovered over 60 references to the new engine. "There are references to Source, Hybrid, and Source 2 in this file," the website says. "We speculate that Hybrid is the base for which Source 2 is sitting on."
There is also one possible reference to Half Life 2: Episode 3:
Valve has been contacted for comment. We'll update this story if we hear back.
Yay. Valve tech is always good.
"Possible reference", come on now: come clean.
I have thought for a long time now that we have not seen HL3 since they were working on a new engine. HL3 will then be used to show off that new engine. So here is hoping this is true.
After Reading the Header, I was quite amused at the thought of Gaben being all Indiana Jones like and plundering ruins in search of new software engines.
Though only rumours, this has me pretty excited. I still think the Source engine is one of the best game engines today, possibly because of how user friendly it's been for modders and programmers.
HALF lIFE 3.
Please let a new half-life be soon...
Saw this earlier, doubt its anything.
