Valve Working On A Brand New Source Engine

The folks at /v/ from 4chan headed over to Valve to wish Gabe Newell a happy birthday (in a pretty intricate and ingenius manner) but in the fracas some questions were asked, and it looks like Valve could actually be working on a new Source engine.

In the above video Gabe states, in response to a question regarding a new source engine, that they've "been working on new engine stuff for a while" and are apparently "just been waiting for a game to roll it out with".

Someone then asked: "Is it more than just an extension to Source? Like, is it an entirely new engine?"

To which, Newell answered, "yeah".

Gabe also confirmed that, yes, Richochet 2 is in development, leading many folks wondering if it'll be the first game using the new engine.

Thanks Joystiq


    Didn't everyone already know they are working on Source 2 since the Source Film maker?

      Thanks, it would have been nice for a time stamp on a 52 minute video in the first place haha

      Oh well I guess this means half life 3/ep3 will be a great looking game yay

      I think at the time, it was discovered that internally, Source 2 was the difference between Half-Life 2 and Portal 2. Same engine, somewhat upgraded.

    6:00 mark if you wanna cut to the point.

    Why can't it be a new episode of Half-life? God-damn you Newell, give the people what they want!

    Get ready for l4d3:cashgrab edition

      ill take one, cant get enough of l4d

    Welcome to 2011.

    Did anyone ask about Half Life 3

      We do not speak of that here.

      Episode 3 you mean! :(

      I miss playing through HL2.

        Yeah sorry.

      Depending on context, "Ricochet 2" actually means "Half Life 3". This is a gag started a while bag which Gabe seems to have run with. Check below article for a little bit more.

      Gabe asked them specifically to not ask about Half-Life 3.

    Known this for ages.

    OH BOY! Ricochet 2! Cannot wait!

    Valve, I am prepared to be wowed. Again.
