It seems Valve has kicked off a new alternate reality game, initiating speculation that a Half-Life 3
reveal may be in the offing. What are thought to be clues about this are found in a trailer Valve submitted to support the nomination of Wheatley from Portal 2 for a VGA for character of the year. The video is posted on Rock, Paper, Shotgun
along with a half-speed version of the clip
to make the numbers and Russian text clues more apparent, which RPS notes includes a lambda and three ones. PC Gamer
also notes a reddit
comment with an email allegedly from Valve's Gabe Newell saying: "I can see how the wording caused some confusion there. Yes, we are announcing something with a three in it."
