    Nothing in that link suggests a new engine, just a new game.
    Interesting news perhaps, but not related in any way to Linux.

    The new game should compete with Battlefield and CoD, that's simply impossibly with the old Source engine.

      There are no infos about it, but when they are working on a new one, it would make no sense to keep working on the old and that means there will be no Half-Life 2 Source for Linux forever.

        Marketing speak does not translate into software code.

        • I hope steam will finally be here. Its been a year already since I have my hopes high

          Anyway I never understood why companies which have native OSX programs version don't want to move it to the Linux. It is basically the same system under the hood.

              There's no reason why the next CS wouldn't use it...

                Rumoured, leaked, probably actually fake screenshots. Again, nothing to be excited about.
                here states that it will run on a modified Source engine (which in all likelyhood simply means the latest iteration of updates they've put into it).

                • If it's not fake then it's horrible, way way way too much bloom lighting!

                  • I might have Steam goin

                    I updated my intel Macbook to OS X 10.5.8.

                    Five dollar games .... Hmmm, it's tempting.

                    But non-console gaming is on the nose i reckon. Macbooks and desktop macs only account for 30% of apples revenue i think,
                    and Lion is a step towards dumbing the whole OS down to the level of iOS.

                    On my linux box, i'll be lucky if they make a half-working flash port of The Binding of Isaac.

                    • Hardware platform ?!

                      In this article subtitled Valve vs. Apple someone (i think Newell) tosses up the idea of Valve making their own hardware platform.

                      If Valve were to make a hardware platform, it would open it up to competing distribution systems because openness is important to the future of the entertainment industry, he said.
                      Now that would make me smile
