Default Valve promises '3 big surprises' are coming in next 12 months

Valve has promised "at least" three "big surprises" for gamers in the next 12 months. Half-Life 3, anyone?

Unfortunately - in typical, teasing style - it refused to be drawn on any detail of what the surprises entailed.



Speculation over a Half-Life 2: Episode 3 announcement was rife before E3 in June, but never materialised. Valve cancelled a planned press conference at the LA Expo very suddenly - which was supposed to reveal a "surprise".

Maybe that was one of the three?

"I can guarantee you people are going to be surprised at stuff we do. That isn't going to stop any time soon. I'm just laughing because... people will be shocked again," Valve boss Gabe Newell told the latest issue of PC Gamer.

"We have three pretty big surprises in the next 12 months at least."

Bring 'em on, Gabe. Bring 'em on.

Newell has also revealed that Valve is working hard on biometrics to better understand their customers - and, potentially, to bring freaky new heart-monitoring thrills to gameplay.

You can read the full, fascinating interview with Valve on its history in PC Gamer UK - which is with subscribers now and in stores tomorrow
Guesses:
1. Episode 3
2. Source 2.0 w/DX11
3. New IP

Doubt it will just be a TF2 update or L4D2 update etc. They wouldn't talk it up like this if it was just some updates for existing titles.

Portal 2 could be one of the titles, but that's not exactly a surprise at this point, is it?

My hopes are that Ep3 finally gets released. They announce and show off a new/updated DX11 engine, and announce a new IP or maybe HL3 (after Ep3 hits).

I'd like to see Episode 3/HL3 and/or Source 2. Source is the best game engine evar.

Meh...in the next 12 months? Someone should tell Valve that it means "One year". If that, I don't expect anything from them until it nears the end of next August. :-/

I can see it now...l4D3, Portal 3 and Alien swarm 2

Source 2 would be huge, source 1 is still pretty darn great little engine. Source 2 and a combo game of a mix of the Portal universe and Half Life together!! Oh and Co-op Gabe....CO-OP!!!

Naturally, I'm hoping for EP3/HL3, Source2, and a new IP- maybe CS:S2?

MMO in a post apocalyptic Half Life(Source) world would be a surprise of decade, but it is simply not possible to hide from public.
