Over the past few weeks, a plethora of incredible pieces of machinima have been generated thanks to the Source Filmmaker from Valve. Don’t believe us? Then check out our recent winner of Best Gaming Clip of the Week.
The folks over at ValveTime.net have discovered something interesting in the code for the Source Filmmaker, however. How interesting? So interesting that it appears Valve has been working on the Source Engine 2 for Half-Life 3.
The code that will definitely catch your eye states, “Return an str with the current engine version. If key doesn’t doesn’t exist, assume ‘Source’, otherwise invalid — assume next-gen ‘Source 2′”. After so many rumors and lack of information for the existence of a new Half-Life title, it appears that the internet has finally found something worth noting.
Earlier in the year images were leaked that appeared to be concept art for Half-Life 3. The images took the internet by storm, but no official word or comment came from a Valve employee.
Valve released the original Half-Life on the Xbox, Half-Life 2 on this current generation of consoles, and it only seems right that the third title in the series would find its way on the future generation of consoles.
What do you think about Valve working on the Source Engine 2? When do you think we’ll see Half-Life 3? Be sure to let us know what you think by leaving us a comment below, or discuss Half-Life 3 in our forums.
