This helps to confirm suspicions I had - I assumed at fist Episode 3/Half Life 3 would be delayed for next gen consoles - now Source engine 2 references are backing that up. Source 2 would most likely be for next-gen consoles, like it says, so they are hopefully delaying HL3/Ep3 for next-gen. Quite annoying for PC gamers like me though.

And here I was thinking Valve had only 3s to make at this point.

Man they love teasing us through program code. Let's see if Ep3 hinting leads to something this time.

},

Looks like it's been in development for a long time already. The "hybrid" engine may be a fallback, and pure speculation here but I'm guessing EP3 is going to drop around the time the next gen of consoles are released. The hybrid engine seems to make more sense this way. Next gen consoles get Source2 versions of the games, and the current generation gets the same content ported back to Source technology.
