After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Valve Files Trademark For Half-Life 3 [Update: "Likely A Hoax"]

Posted on Friday, October 4 @ 16:15:00 PST by Alex_Osborn


[Update]
 It looks like Valve may not have registered the trademark for Half-Life 3 after all, as ValveTime has posted an update, reporting that the registration has since been removed and is "more than likely a hoax."

Here's the update in full:

We can now confirm that the "Half-Life 3" trademark has been removed from the Trademarks and Design Registration Office of the European Union (OHIM) website. The entrant appears to have disappeared entirely after only being listed on the website database for little over a week, allowing us to identify that the trademark's listing was more than likely a hoax intended to generate fake buzz for a game which is unlikely to appear for several years. Returning readers may remember when we had discussed how the "Half-Life 3" listing was previously never officially checked or authenticated before its removal.

On October 2nd 2013, a brand new trademark filing appeared on the same site, this time for "Portal 3", which is listed under the trademark number of "012190286". While this new filing should almost definitely be taken with a rather large pinch of salt, we can confirm that the "Portal 3" listing appears to have been appropriately examined by OHIM, unlike the previously listed "Half-Life 3" trademark. Thanks to the recentsneak peak into Valve's Jira account, we can confirm that there is currently no "Portal 3" development team within the company, highlighting that this brand new listing is also very likely a hoax of some kind, regardless of whether or not it has been officially examined. We'll keep you posted if and when we learn more.

Sorry, folks.

[ValveTime]

[Original] The folks over at Valve have filed a trademark for Half-Life 3, adding fuel to the raging fire currently burning within the hearts of Gordon Freeman fans all over the globe.

The trademark, which was filed in Europe, was unearthed by DualShockers. You can check out a screenshot of the registration below.
 

With the recent reveal of SteamOS, Steam Machines, and the risky new Steam Controller, one would think Valve might have some software in the works as a showpiece for its new platform. Will Half-Life 3 end up having some sort of exclusivity on SteamOS? There's certainly a good chance that'll be the case.
