Did Valve Just Secretly Release Source 2, and Does it Even Matter?

8CN: So it looks like Valve may have stealthily released their long-awaited Source 2 engine in a recent Dota 2 update. Specifically, they recently released the Dota 2 workshop tools in alpha form, and after digging through some of the files included with the tools, it looks like there's a decent amount of evidence for this theory. But what's the significance of releasing the Source 2 engine in this way, and why all the secrecy from Valve?

The story is too old to be commented.

It certainly seems like they did. I mean the evidence is interesting. Though we've been down this road before, so I'm still waiting for it to be debunked. Steam Beta also got a slight face lift as well. It wasn't much but for Steam GUI its practically an overhaul:P

As far as their secretive nature; its frustrating, but I think the way they're structured as a company has a lot to do with it.

It doesn't matter, and Valve/Gabe repeatedly stated that before, they simply gonna keep updating Source, until they might say, well its different enough to call it Source 2, or maybe they just not gonna call it that even if its too different. At the end of they day it doesn't matter, they have engine that is better than other versions before it, and which will continuously keep improving, so why would anyone give a fk is beyond me.
