These are not just single lines of code or vague entries; there are over 60+ references to this new engine, and some are design tools with their own icons. This fact is making many wonder why, then, has Valve downplayed the possibility of an updated engine for so long?
Some would point out the idea that this could be the reason we have not seen Half Life 2: Episode Three yet, but things are afoot. We’ll see if Valve will use Episode Three as a jumping point for their potential new engine, or if they will skip over to Half Life 3.
