New Source engine is likely the reason for the extended delay on Half Life 3. Hopefully Valve coming out and making a statement on the engine itself means they are close to a bigger announcement.

I just want episode 3. :/

BUT I am excited about a new Source engine. The current engine has produced some fantastic games.

I don't want hl3 this year to many games to get through.. next year 12/25/2012 would be a perfect time!!

I rather they wait & perfect the masterpiece until it's ready & up to there standards. no rushing it!

source is still an amazing engine so source 2.0 will be crazy nice!!

I still say Portal 2 has some kinda new Source engine code built into it.

Every Valve game has new engine stuff in it.

Doesn't really matter the platform, really. Valve designed Source to be modular.

Every major release brings a large amount of change to the Source engine.

HL2/CSS = Original Source
Ep. 1 = HDR
Orange Box = Multi-core, better post processing, new face flexing pipeline
L4D = AI Director, filmic effects
L4D2 = Multi-core enhancements, awesome gore
Portal 2 = improved lighting, fluids
