Source 2 soft-launch

Valve appears to have stealthily soft-launched the long-awaited Source 2 game engine alongside the overnight release of Workshop Tools for Dota 2, Dota modders are suggesting.

Central to the theory is while Dota 2's assets remain the same in this update, the code is decidedly different — in particular, all files that would share a name with the Source engine are qualified with the number 2, including engine2.dll, vconsole2.exe, vphysics2.dll.
The tools themselves have relatively high system requirements, including a 64-bit version of Windows and DirectX 11 compatible graphics card. In response, Valve has acknowledged "this is a developer focused release and currently has high system requirements." But the company is yet to make a statement regarding the possible Source 2 connection.

Thereby continuing their annual release schedule of something game related, and maintaining their history of adding 2's to their products.

Fingers crossed for CS2, DoD2, and L4D2:ep1 "The We're Actively Messing With You Box" next fall.

Just wait until Gamescom, where Valve is scheduled to appear. I'm pretty sure they're going to be revealing some big stuff there.
