Last week, a group of fans from 4Chan’s /v/ board visited Gabe Newell for his birthday, only to be surprised with a confirmation that Valve is working on their next in-house Engine. Presenting him a large Team Fortress themed birthday card and real life Mann Co Crate filled with a replica of the Soldier class’ helmet, they were given the opportunity to ask Gabe a few questions.  An interesting exchange occurred, specifically the one after the jump.

“Fan: Is Valve potentially already working on a new engine?

Fan: Source 2? Could or… could not be?

Gabe Newell: We’ve been working on Valve’s new engine stuff for a while, we’re probably just [incomprehensible, subtitled as: “waiting for a game to roll it out with”]

Fan: Is it going to be more than just an extension to Source? Is it an entirely new engine?

Gabe Newell: Yeah!”

The above exchange was just part of a filmed conversation with Newell (the full released video can be found here).
