Spotted this on Reddit/Gaf, from CBOAT, no less.

I like that Valve don't release a Half Life game every year, or every other year like most game series. However given its 6+ years since Episode 2 i would love another Half Life game now!

If true, the engine looks to have a lot more detail than the last. I only hope the performance doesn't take a hit.

I happened to see the gaf thread right when it started, and watched it just explode, and perhaps I just do not follow gaming like I once did, but I do not get what the big deal is here? That it is going to be announced soon? Or that they are working on it?

If it is the latter, is that really such a surprise?

The slides from SDD are due to be released at some point, seems legit to me.

 

The small text slide in the bottom left corner also seems to talk about new tooling with a powerful new GUI frontend, which fits with "leaked" icon assets and probably describes a Python/Qt frontend like Source Filmmaker uses.

Another leak that's flying around currently, take this one with a heap of salt - but does seem to match the slide content.

 

Would also make sense for Valve to port their MP titles (being the most actively patched) over to Source 2, drop the DirectX9 + DX9-on-GL codepaths for a single unified OpenGL codepath.

When it comes to Valve I think people get pretty excited to hear they're working on anything at all, seeing as they are so secretive. It could be a name or a logo or a screenshot and people would flip lol.

 

We already knew Source 2 was in dev, GabeN told 4Chan when they went to Valve offices on/around his birthday. This news may mean our first experience of it will be L4D3, and maybe sooner than HL3.

Interesting, they might actually release updated builds of Left 4 Dead 2, Team Fortress and Dota 2 with Source 2. That'd also explain why they're not interested in releasing patches to fix obvious issues in the Linux version of L4D2.

There's 20 slides and the 14th one is selected. This slide talks about Source engine 2 and Left for Dead 2.

 

(20-14)/2 = 3

 

It's happening guys. I told ya HL 3 is coming soon.

Hahahaha, I didn't even catch that. It could also be a hinted announcement date, perhaps 2-2-2014?

Even if this is a legit slideshow from Valve, all it proves is that Source 2 is being produced and they remade a level in LFD2 to show that off, it doesn't really prove the existence of a third game. In saying that I'd love a third game and an amazing Source 2 engine in the hands of more devs!

That's actually been widely reported already. Fans who visited Valve took a photo that showed developers chatting about Left4Dead 3, and leaked information from a Valve server showed development groups for both Source 2 and Left4Dead 3.

 

That makes me think this could be a well-researched hoax, but obviously it also means this could be legit. It's really impossible to know based on what little these PowerPoint screenshots show.
