I thought Source didn't have version numbers or whatever.

Seriously. They've just been waiting for next gen consoles to come out so that minimum bar gets raised.

Source pushed physics so far back in the day that I can't wait to see how they push things again. Hope to see fluid dynamics and cloth simulation next gen finally!

It doesn't, this doesn't make any sense. Maybe he put that as the next overhaul to the engine?

This. Cutting off the gameplay to load up textures and shit was jarring in HL2. (Didnt prevent it from being my favorite game ever though)

If Source 2 started that late, for HL3, it still won't be done this year.

Counter Strike 2? Meh. It's been reiterated so many god damn times I wish they would just put a bullet in it and leave it to rest.

I'm pretty sure we've known about source 2 forever now.

Or maybe it was one of those unspoken things.

If by forever you mean in 2012, then sure. But apparently work began 2 years earlier, something we didn't know.

We've known of the existence of Source 2 since 4chan's visit to Valve. Newell himself confirmed that they're working on Source 2 and that's it's a brand new engine instead of an update to the previous one.

I'd be happy if anything comes out in 2014/2015 at this point

Fun fact: If not released earlier, Episode Three/Half-Life 3 will become Valve's longest-gestating project on October 3rd, 2015 (judging from initial announcement -> release date).

Valve games on console? No mods? No big updates? Is the half of the fun

So, if my message board etiquette is correct, we should now be blaming this guy, and this guy alone for fucking up Source 2 and delaying HL3. Screw you, Tom Leonard!

Source has been around a loooong time. Good thing Valve's art direction tends to be really good; can't hide those load times, though.

Doubtful unless Source 2 is somehow more efficient and has lower hardware requirements than Source. Dota 2's reqs are steep enough compared to the likes of WoW and SC2 as it is.

24 employees were let go. Two theories:

a) "performance review"
b) "cuts were driven more by company challenges than by individual performance issues"
