Datamining results in references to Source 2 in Source Filmmaker
| by Shunal Doke |
Fansite Valve Time recently reported that evidence has been found in the script files in the recently released Source Filmmaker. The website reports that there are many references in the script files to “Source 2”. The exact script is on line 1387 of the script file and reads:
The Source Engine may be getting a new version
Before the Source Film Maker, budding machinima makers had to rely on development tools provided by Valve, which are usually used for making games or mods based on the Source Engine. People also used Garry’s Mod, which is a physics sandbox. Unlike regular games, Garry’s Mod has no aims or goals. It is primarily used to play around with the Source Engine physics and art assets, or make comics or movies.
Few companies in the gaming world are followed as closely as Valve. This may be largely because of its utter silence on the sequel to Half-Life 2: Episode 2, which is based on the Source Engine. The game ends on a cliffhanger, and has caused people to be thoroughly annoyed with the company as it has been almost five years since Half-Life 2: Episode 2 was released through the Orange Box. Many speculate and talk about rumours of the fabled next iteration of the game. Some believe it will be Half-Life 2: Episode 3, others believe it will be Half-Life 3. If Valve were to follow their regular pattern, a supposed Half-Life 3 would showcase the capabilities of a new graphics and physics engine.
