    I'm not believing anything unless it's announced by VALVe.

    There are definately Valve made policies that state you can't withold information about their prototypes or projects in resumes. Why risk the lawsuit.

    Valve have NDA's regarding working projects, it could of been that Mike D had the project on his resume before Valve Officially went silent

    Or this resume is manufactured to include it. There is at least one of these attempts each month, it's hard to predict which ones will get some momentum but the desperation for a nugget of information drives us to crazy lengths.

    It's quite obvious it is made up, I mean the dates and details on the CV are a culmination of facts we know and pieces of information Valve have said. For example, they were going to outsource an episode, the date for episode 2's launch and the ending of the episodic model. Throw 'Mike D' in there as an arbitrary Valve employee and see how far it goes!

    I love the speculation as to why the user who posted it on SPUF was banned though. Ordinarily in a normal universe we can label a troll fairly easily...but throw episode 3 into the equation and we would happily send our bank account details to Nigeria.

    I dont know if its legit or not i just thought it was a little interesting, because most of the time, not always, but most of everything i've read on game informer is usually not bs. Oh well.

    Well, I mean, with the hire-ins and relative secrecy surrounding anything but DotA 2 is indicative in itself (and the statement made by Doug, which essentially implies a "eventually" means they're, at the very least, developing assets for something Half-Life related.

    I hardly doubt this is revelatory to anyone 'round these parts, though. Source needs an overhaul and Valve needs a new tour de force and some long-needed fan service. I'd expect a product announcement within the year and a game within a decade - given they're dev cycles, haha.
