Wow, they have been making HL3 so long the trademark ran out! No wonder they have to secure it for another few years.

I was just thinking about this too. Was there an expiration date on the previous trademark? If not, how the fuck did they NOT trademark it sooner?

That's what I don't get. This must be a renewal or something? Probably have to apply for a trademark renewal after sitting on it and doing nothing with it for so fucking long.

They wouldn't make it SteamOS exclusive, that would be absurd. They would almost certainly offer some other incentive though, either a lower price for HL3 on SteamOS or some in-game exclusives or something.

If you were about to "launch" an entire platform (SteamOS) why would you not want the biggest game alongside it?
