Source 2/Half-Life 3 Rumor

VG247 reports a rumor that Valve's E3 surprise will be the announcement of the Source Engine 2. They attribute this to a "VG247 source," who wishes to remain anonymous. Their source also suggests the possibility this will be shown off running Half-Life 3, showing even rumors can bury the lede.

Heh, Source 2. I called it in the other thread and I wouldn't mind that it was indeed Source 2.

I called it too, a long time ago. I knew the only real reason they would spend so much time on Half-Like 3/Ep3 was if they were creating an all new engine for it. I mean the Source engine is really getting along in the years now. The updates made to it are nice but even in their newest games, graphics haven't been all that amazing (though frankly, with Valve games, who cares if the graphics aren't amazing, because the gameplay is sure to rock.)

Here's hoping the 'big secret' of E3 is the reveal of Source 2!

It's probably a given that we will get to see Counter-Strike 2 using Source 2 to be included with Half-Life 3.

If Source 2 is indeed the reveal, along with Half Life 3, CS:S2, maybe even TF3 on the pipeline the following question has to be asked.

What will this do to PC gaming?

Looking forward to it but I don't think any game can ever top the introduction of HL2 and Source at that past E3

What will this do to PC Hacker groups looking to make a name for themselves by delaying HL3 for a year.

You're probably right about that but...
Fuuuucccck I want some Source2 HL3 CS:S2 TF3


What would it do to gaming? It would show that, together with the Steam platform and Source2, PC Gaming didn't die it was just consolidated by Valve.

I wouldn't doubt they've been working on HL3, the whole mini-episode thing turned out to be a joke.

That hasn't stopped them in the past (L4D). They'll probably delay Portal 2 while they finish porting it to Source2.

HL3, eh, but Source 2 is very interesting. I was wondering how long Valve was going to keep running on that decrepit old engine.

I hope Source 2 will actually allow for levels that are bigger than a room and a hallway followed by a LOADING in the middle of your screen.

Yep, sounds about right to me. No way in hell it'll be an announcement about Half-Life 3. And an engine reveal is pretty damned tepid... doubt that'll be the surprise either.

Isn't that dead in the water? The amateur level designer who made the first 3 They Hungers, plus that really awesome vanilla HL level pack, doesn't seem to be making levels anymore.

I think the surprise announcement will be that Valve has hired the guys making the Black Mesa mod and have turned into a full retail product.
