Source 2 References Found in Source Filmmaker, in Development by Valve?

Posted By | On 06th, Aug. 2012


Recent findings have indicated that Valve hasn’t been idly sitting on it’s hunches all this time while fans complain about a lack of Half-Life related material.

According to these findings, Valve could be developing a next generation Source 2 engine. References to the same have been found within the Source Film-maker, recently released by Valve.

The Paste bin and file path read as the following:

…/SourceFilmmaker/game/sdktools/python/global/lib/site-packages/vproj/vproj.py”

Line 1387:

”’Return an str with the current engine version.
If key doesn’t doesn’t exist, assume ‘Source’, otherwise invalid — assume next-gen ‘Source 2′.”’

This is one of apparently 60+ references. There are also references to Source, Hybrid, and Source 2, speculation being that Hybrid is the base for Source 2.

No news on how this affects, say, Half Life 2: Episode 3, but investigations are on-going. Another user has reported finding Source 2 tools within Source Film-maker.

Valve hasn’t officially confirmed or denied anything, but they have said Source is “about to get even better” at one point. Stay tuned for more.
