Valve to Announce Source Engine 2 at E3?


As you all know by now, the official sport of the internet this week is speculation on what Valve will be showing off as their “surprise” at E3 next week.

The speculation could be coming an end now, thanks to a report over at VG247. According to what they call “a source close to VG247,” Valve will be revealing Source Engine 2 at E3 this year. Furthermore, their source speculated that Valve would show Half-Life 3 running on the new engine as well.

This would fit with Valve’s past showings, where Half-Life has been a feature. Half-Life debuted on GoldSource, and Half-Life 2 first appeared on the debut of Source.

We’ll have to wait until next week to be sure, but this is the first rumor I’ve heard that actually makes sense to me.

“According to what they call “a source close to VG247,”” that sounds a bit snarky Ronald. :D

The surprise they are holding is that they will release Half life 2 on Linux.
