Valve to Release a Source 2 Game Engine? Maybe Not.

I’ve been wondering about this for a while now considering how old the current Valve Source engine is (released in 2004). Gabe Newell and Valve seem to be set on continuing their “incremental” approach to engine development according to this article.

Valve has no plans for Source 2

    >As long as there is continued development, the Source engine will be fine. Games like L4D2 and Portal 2 prove that regardless of how old the engine is it can still look great, play well AND have interesting features that few other games do. Though the zombie infestation games are getting a little excessive now. I'd rather have good games.

    Maybe Valve realized that you can sell games on an engine from more than a decade ago and be swimming in cash. *coughCODcough*

    >It was always meant to be an engine that could be incremnentally updated but you can only do so much. The engine still looks ok but def. is showing it's age so it's not surprising that many people were thinking Valve would do a new engine in the near future.

    >Correct me if i'm wrong, but my understanding was source was built to be upgraded as the years went by. Thus there being no need for source 2. I'll just go sit in a corner and be quiet if i'm incorrect. Also CSS2 plz.

  4. Scott says:

    >Haha – agreed. At this point though I seriously doubt if they will ever finish/release Episode 3. Give me CSS 2 though ferdayz.

  5. Welshboy2142 says:

    >If they did it would take them like 10 years to get it out considering how long it's taken them to release Episode 3



Chode Master. That is all.
