Posted on November 13, 2012, Ross Lincoln Valve Is Making Source Engine Two
Billionaire Gabe Newell has confirmed that Valve is still not doing anything with Half-Life 3 because they’re too busy, probably swimming around in Gabe Newell’s money. In fairness, he actually did not say anything about Half-Life 3, but that’s because he specifically told everyone not to ask him anything about Half-Life. I choose to interpret this to mean that Gabe Newell would rather hang out in Duckberg with his number one dime than actually get to work on Half-Life 3.
Here’s what happened: A gaggle of members of 4 Chan’s /v/ board visited Valve HQ for the Billionaire’s birthday, and one of them asked him if they’re working on a new version of the Source engine. “We’ve been working on new engine stuff for a while,” Newell said. “We’ve just been waiting for a game to roll it out with.” When asked to if it’s a brand new engine rather than an update for the original, Newell said “Yeah.”
