Valve’s Gabe Newell confirms work on new recreation engine, nonetheless will not reply your Half-Life three queries
“So what do you wanna find out about that is not Half-Life three?” Valve president Gabe Newell, laughing, asks a crowd of 4chan members who just lately visited the Washington-based mostly studio. The group’s first query, nevertheless, was simply as worthwhile. What’s up with that supposed new recreation engine? “We have been engaged on new engine stuff for awhile,” Newell says. It is robust to listen to what he says subsequent, however it seems like, “We’ll in all probability simply roll it out in one among our video games” (subtitles of the video learn: “We have simply been ready for a recreation to roll it out with”). Fortunately, a followup query immediately addresses Newell’s ambiguity. “Is it going to be extra than simply an replace to Supply [Valve’s first game engine]? Is it a completely new engine?” the 4chan member asks, which Newell immediately (and concisely) responds to with a easy, “Yeah.” See the complete again-and-forth past the break.
Newell does not immediately seek advice from the in-improvement engine as “Supply Engine 2,” so it is potential (albeit unlikely) that he is referring to a separate engine altogether, or (much more unlikely) Valve has multiple recreation engine being created. We have but to listen to again from Valve for clarification.
Oh, and if you’d like an replace on Half-Life three, Newell re-confirms that “Ricochet 2” is being labored on, so take that as you’ll.
