[U][I][B]FALSE ALARM FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK
[QUOTE]There’s nothing like a big old scoop to make the hot summer days downright incendiary.
Our resident Australian tracker and editor, Mimaz, has made a rather intriguing discovery (all credit goes to him for finding it, as he merely offered me the honor of writing about it). On [URL="http://www.linkedin.com/pub/gerald-bauser/54/786/114"]the LinkedIn profile of Gerald Bauser, Project Manager of Programming[/URL] for [URL="http://www.gamescom-cologne.com/en/gamescom/home/index.php"]gamescom 2012[/URL] (set to take place from the 16th to the 19th of August), Mimaz found a list of publicity programs set to be on display at gamescom, that Gerald is currently overseeing.
On the list, there is a wide variety of games that are set to be released in the near future, which will be presented publically at gamescom 2012. This is the list. We’ve taken the liberty of placing the interesting bit in bold:
Activision Blizzard – Call of Duty®: Black Ops 2 PC, 360, PS3 and World of Warcraft expansion (from 3 months)
Konami – Metal Gear® Rising: Revengence (ongoing)
Electronic Arts – Medal of Honor Warfighter ™, Crysis ® 3 and Need for Speed ​​™ Most Wanted (3 months) PC, 360, PS3
Rockstar games – Grand Theft Auto V and Table Tennis Tournament 2 – (4 months) PC, 360, PS3
Arenanet – Guild Wars® 3 (in progress) PC, 360, PS3
[B]Valve – Coming Soon (in progress)[/B]
Ubisoft – Assassin’s Creed 3 (for 5 months) PC; 360, PS3
Reef Entertainment – Coming Soon (2 months)
As you can see, among all the upcoming high-caliber games, lies a mention of an unannounced Valve title, noted simply as: “[I]Coming Soon[/I]“. This clearly denotes that it is an unannounced and secretive game project (no platforms are even specified).
I can only assume that the “[I](in progress)[/I]” written next to it, is meant to represent the planning timeline for the game’s representation. In this case, it would seem that planning for Valve’s mysterious showing appears to still be in progress, which would indicate that the decision to reveal the unannounced project at Gamescom may still be a relatively recent development.
Of course, there’s also the mention of ArenaNet’s Guild Wars 3 there, which does sound a bit… suspicious, considering Guild Wars 2 isn’t even out yet. It also says “[I]PC, 36o, PS3[/I]“, when Guild Wars 1 and 2 are PC-exclusive games. In addition, Gerald has… exactly zero professional connections over LinkedIn, which is also odd… so I’m not sure. It could very well be fake, at this point.
In any case, we have contacted Valve for comment, and will let you know as soon as we receive a response. Apart from that, we know nothing else at this time. With gamescom a month away, it’s gonna be a long wait until we can find out exactly what this is all about. Still, let’s all try to keep our expectations under control, for the time being – just in case this is another false alarm.
thanks for the boxes, I'm just as much a victim of disappointment as you are
Ricochet 2 hoooohoho
But wow this title came unexpected.
When does this gamescom event take place?
I'm going to be optimistic and say Episode Three
I'm guessing it's either the new HL or SOB.
...or Ricochet 2 :v:
Saying this is Half-Life 3 is just pure speculation and rumor.

Agreed, it'll likely be something else.
Still. It'd be nice.
"This just in, Valve has announced the 3rd installment in their award winning franchise, Left 4 Dead"
portal life: global day of ricochet fortess 3

trying too hard to be funny
probably just gonna be Left 4 Dead 3
Nah, Left 4 Dead 3 is too early, Global Offensive's "official" announcement or Dota 2 could be there, iunno.
If it was Episode Three though I would go absolutely fucking apeshit crazy and go shit on the streets.
Perhaps the game is called "Coming Soon"
Dr. Grordbort: The game.

if l4d3 is too early... then l4d2 was?

Coming Soon: The only realistic Valve Game Development Simulator!
I'm excited for this, but also to see GTA5.
Whatever it is, at least GTA V will be there too.
Its going to be stupid, their history at events like this would indicate such...
i'm skeptical of this, mainly because of arena net announcing guild wars 3 before the 2nd one is even released. then again it'll probably take about 5-6 years to develop knowing arena net.
Fingers crossed for F-STOP or whatever they're implementing that mechanic into.

I'd love it more than HL3
It's gonna be a Day of Defeat sequel.
New Valve game, eh?
Have any promising mod teams ~mysteriously vanished~ from the grid in the past 1-2 years or so?
-------------DO NOT READ POSTS BELOW, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED-------------
couldn't it just be Dota 2 or CS:GO?
