Source 2 Engine Hint

There are bits of code in Valve's Source Filmmaker suggesting plans are in place for a next version of Valve's Source engine. Here's an example: ""Return an str with the current engine version. If key doesn't doesn't [sic] exist, assume 'Source', otherwise invalid -- assume next-gen 'Source 2'." Thanks Valvetime.net via Eurogamer.

Will Source 2 finally get rid of the ridiculous "LOADING" segment every 20 seconds?

LOL! That's likely because the Source engine was modeled after computer source code: lots of small files that allowed for precision tailoring, and thus efficiency/performance, but meant frequent loading times on mechanical drives. SSD 4k performance and low latency will solve this problem. Well, assuming Source 2 accounts for that transition, as with the original Source it was seen as a trade-off (kind of like how compression trades off CPU time and memory for space/HDD time).
