A former Valve employee’s LinkedIn profile has revealed that Valve is indeed working on the Source Engine 2. Or at least they were. Tom Leonard worked at Valve for a very long time. He played a big role in games like Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2. Now he’s looking for a job and his resume reveals an interesting bit about his work from late 2010 up until last month.
Senior Developer, Source 2
November 2010 – February 2013 (2 years 4 months)
This is some pretty big news even if it isn’t unexpected. Valve is clearly working on a next-generation game engine, an Source 2 seems like a no-brainer.
Hopefully we see this engine in action sometime soon followed by a new Half-Life game in the near future. We’ve waited long enough Valve!
