Gabe Newell: Source 2, Ricochet 2 in the works

During Gabe Newell’s 50th birthday he got a visit from members of 4chan’s /v/ board who,in addition to bringing gifts such as real-life Team Fortress 2 hats and crates, also got to ask him some questions about what the company is working on. One such question was “Is Valve working on a new Source engine?” to which Gaben replied “We’ve been working on new engine stuff for a while. We’ve just been waiting for a game to roll it out with.”

He was then asked whether this was a brand new engine and not just an extension to Source and the answer was “yeah.” This fits with the August find of Source 2 code inside the Source Filmmaker application, alongside “Source 2 tools” icons. The engine was labeled “next-gen.” During the same meeting it was also confirmed that Valve is working on Ricochet 2, a sequel to the 2000 mod for the original Half Life in which “players jump between neon-lit platforms suspended above an abyss, and shoot disks at one another, trying to push the opponent off the platform and into the depths.”
