Posted on October 1, 2013, Devin Connors Two Half-Life 3 Dev Teams Spotted In Valve Database
Earlier today, we reported on the Half-Life 3 trademark filing over in Europe, but that’s not enough Valve/Half-Life news for one day. NO, SIR!
There are new reports coming out of Reddit and Gematsu that two Half-Life 3 teams are in place inside of Valve Software. The teams, dubbed “Half-Life 3,” and “Half-Life 3 Core,” were listed in the now-locked-down Valve User Picker. Furthermore, at least a dozen of the listed employees are people who are also credited in Half-Life 2 (official credit list here for reference).
So now we have a trademark, two possible development teams, a new operating system, a new controller, and more forthcoming hardware than you can shake a stick at. We are also on the eve of Half-Life’s 15 year anniversary, and Half-Life 2′s nine year anniversary — I think it’s time to reveal the Game Informer cover or get off the pot, Valve.
