Several months ago, Source 2 references were spotted inside the Source Filmmaker code. Now, it’s the turn of Half Life 3 to appear with new scripting fragments added as of January 2014.
You can think of them as placeholder text more than anything else and point to file locations that just might exist in Valve’s render farms. While it’s not the best possible explanation that Half Life 3 is in development, and it does nothing on its own, it at least points to a possible connection between Source Filmmaker and Half Life 3 in some way.
As of now, Half Life 3 remains elusive, as Valve has pointed out time and again that it’s only in bits and pieces right now, and no where near a final playable state. We’ll have to wait and watch yet again – nonetheless, the truth is out there.
