Code and files discovered by the Valvetime.net website within Valve’s new Source Filmmaker software, could be part of a new Source Games Engine which is being developed by Valve, and referred to as Source 2.
If you are part of the Valve Source Filmmaker beta testers and have a copy of the code on your system you can check for yourself, and find code labelled “Source 2”.
The original Source game engine developed by Valve was first released back in 2004 and has since then powered awesome games such as Half-Life 2 and Counter-Strike: Source, and has been tweaked over the years.
”’Return an str with the current engine version. If key doesn’t doesn’t exist, assume ‘Source’, otherwise invalid — assume next-gen ‘Source 2′.”’
The development of a new Source 2 Engine by Valve has yet to be officially confirmed, as well as any news for Half Life 3, which gamers have been patiently waiting for development of.
More information about the rumoured discovered Valve Source 2 Game Engine code can be found over on the ValveTime website, and Valve has been contacted for confirmation of the finding, and we will keep you updated as news is released.
