An intrepid investigator over at valvetime.net has discovered some very interesting news. Digging through the Source Filmmaker script files, a man named Barnz has discovered many references – over 60 in fact – to a ‘Source 2′, from which we can only assume that a successor to the current Source game engine is in development.
The references come along side further references to something called ‘Hybrid’, which the site speculates is the base on which the Source 2 engine will sit. Finally, as the site also mentions, over at the Valve Software page, under the section about the Source engine, it says, “Source is considered the most flexible, comprehensive, and powerful game development environment out there. And it’s about to get even better.” HMM.
