Valve’s Gabe Newell Reveals Source Engine 2 Is Being Made + Ricochet 2

Gabe Newell celebrated his birthday this year in the company of his fans from’s /v/ board this year. Several fans got to tour the Valve offices and see how they work. He also entertained a Q&A session after he was given a combat helmet in the fashion of a TF2 DLC.

During the Q&A Gabe was asked about Valve working on a new engine to which he replied, “We’ve been working on new engine stuff for a while. We’ve just been waiting for a game to roll it out with.” In a second question, he confirmed that it will be a whole new engine. This further confirms the coming of Source 2, especially after fans found comments hidden inside the Source Filmmaker source code referencing Source 2. As expected, he was tight lipped about Half Life 3, revealing nothing at all. He did touch on their being a sequel to Ricochet, the Tron like deathmatch game that started as a Half Life mod. Earlier this year, Gabe Newell discussed the Ricochet 2 commenting that they’d rather not release any information than cause rumors to start by releasing some information. Although many fans speculate that he was actually talking about Half Life 3 without mentioning Half Life 3.
