Valve Has Three Big Surprises Coming in the Next 12 Months

Everyone remembers the surprise that Valve teased us with for E3. Of course, everyone thought it was going to be Half-Life 2: Episode 3. Of course, it wasn’t.

Now Valve is stirring the pot again. In an interview with PC Gamer, Gabe Newell said,

I can guarantee you people are going to be surprised at stuff we do. That isn’t going to stop any time soon. I’m just laughing because… people will be shocked again.

We have three pretty big surprises in the next 12 months at least.

Crank up the internet rumor mill. We know that Episode 3 will be on the top of the rumor list again, and we might as well throw in Defense of the Ancients, since Valve applied for that trademark already.

I wonder what the third surprise will be. Maybe it’ll be that fairy RPG that everyone’s been talking about. Now that would be a surprise.

Valve’s games are now low quality just as they keep making more, like EA. Valve sux now. I don’t expect Ep3 to be anything good now, but it’d be nice to have some closure for Barney and Shepard so I hope one of the surprises in BS2 or OF2

Valve does not suck, if you have been following any of the news that has come out. Valve are using an entirely new engine for the next HL2 game. It will beat the pants off any “Frostbite” engine EA use or Unreal engine iD and Epic use. Just be patient.

Episode 3 isn’t going to be one of them. Otherwise we wouldn’t be surprised when they finally give details on it, which wouldn’t have made it a surprise after all.

I’m guessing L4D3, Meet The Medic & Pyro videos, and probably moar Portal.
