Half Life 3 confirmed? CS2 update code includes clues to new works by V Society

  The latest update of CS2 not only includes a brand new mode and customizable textures, but also obviously includes clues for Valve's next Half Life work.

  According to Gabe Follower, a data miner from V Society, the code extracted from the updated CS2 file includes two new pieces of information. Firstly, there is a game codenamed "hlx". He shared a screenshot of the code, which included a line written as "type=hlx_2d_basic". He explained that the string "hlx" is similar to the codename "HLVR" in "Half Life: Alex". If it is really Half Life 3, V Society will naturally hide it, so the possibility of a formal sequel is not ruled out.

  But some people in the response also explained that the more likely explanation for "x" is "Cross (X) platform", which means "hlx" is likely to be the PSVR2 version of "Half Life: Alex". However, it could also be a completely new derivative work, or anything else.

  The other section of code is rich in content, with approximately 30 code calls listed under the Citadel block. This is a code name previously used by V Society, closely related to Half Life. Previously, it was indicated that this is a multiplayer game, and several lines in the code such as "EguidedBotMatchObjective" and "CitadelLobbyPlayerSlot_t" also confirm this news.

  No matter what the "fortress" is, it seems to include a very rich sports system, with code including "ELeapPhase", "EHurdleType", "EMantlePhase", and "EGrappleState". The game seems to also have surveillance drones. The "HeroID_t" in the code implies that it is either a sequel to DOTA2 or a hero character shooting battle game similar to Watchman and Legion Fortress.
