Is it safe to board the hype train? I guess they could just be renewing the trademark. I want to believe though xD Seems too big a coincidence that they would be renewing it now so close to their other announcements.
Not surprising. There's been a Half-Life 3 ARG going on since Episode 2 released, hints and content data periodically sent to Steam users under the guise of Source engine and Steam software updates. In actuality, we've all got an almost "complete" version of Half-Life 3 buried in update files, the final pieces soon to be released and, in due time, unlocked.
