Valve has registered a new trademark for Half-Life 3 and *gasp* it looks like this time things are starting to get real. It could be a defensive registration as well but nothing can be said at this point. At least it shows some intent from the company.
The trademark image can be spotted below. The game could be released on the next-gen consoles at this rate. Half-Life 3 is one of the most anticipated games and an announcement will surely make the internet collapse for a while.
