Half-Life 3 ?

Polygon are reporting that Valve have filed a application to trademark Half-Life 3 in Europe.

A trademark application for Half-Life 3, possibly the next entry in Valve's excruciatingly dormant Half-Life franchise, has been filed in Europe, according to the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market, the European Union's trademark and designs registry.

Make of this what you will.

trademarking a name only means they own it. companies can have hundreds of things trademarked and never act on them.

It could honestly be nothing at all. Just Valve doing stuff.

There are rules for how long you can hold a trademark without using it. You can get that 6 month period extended up to three years.

I suppose we could consider that a time frame. Maybe Valve's trying to tell us we might finally see something of HL3 around Spring next year. Hopefully sooner.

It was fake, why am I not surprised. I'm getting tired of all the fake hl3 news lately, its like we end up posting 2 every month. Why not everybody just hold onto their britches until you know, the news actually comes from Valve. It's the boy who cried wolf a thousand times over and over.

Are the leaked JIRA listings fake as well, or are those actually real? If they're real then there's still a possibility.
