Yes, we still want to believe.
Remember when images of Valve Software’s Left 4 Dead 2 recreated using the Source 2 Engine has been leaked by renowned NeoGAF insider CBOAT? It now seems that there is indeed more going on at Valve that goes beyond the usual Steam Machines, SteamOS and what have you.

Along with Counter Strike 2, Left 4 Dead 3 and Dota references, you can plainly see the initials “HL3”. There are only two folder directories – perhaps an indication of just how much work has been done? – but Lord knows it’s better than nothing.
