[Rumor] Source Filmmaker might have revealed Source 2.0

Posted on August 6, 2012 - 3:00pm by Sean Hinz

As uncovered by Valvetime.net, Valve’s Source Filmmaker may hold more information about Valve and its engine than the developer anticipated. Digging through the various lines of code, users have found numerous lines that reference both versions of the Source Engine. Here is one of those such examples;

"Return an str with the current engine version. If key doesn't doesn't exist, assume 'Source', otherwise invalid -- assume next-gen 'Source 2',"

This would be a divergence from the often re-affirmed philosophy that Valve does not create new engines, they simply iterate on the existing Source engine. That code would point to Valve working on some completely separate engine and if they are, it might be the reason we haven’t heard anything about Half-Life in so long
