Half-Life 2: Episode 2 underway

Valve confirms its existence.

Valve's reportedly confirmed that the second in its episodic series of Half-Life 2 expansion is already underway.

Episode 2 "has been in development for some time" according to designer/engineer Robin Walker, speaking to CVG, although he declined to elaborate.

It's not entirely surprising of course - with Half-Life 2: Episode 1 (previously known as Aftermath) due out on April 24th, focus is likely to shift to future projects sooner - but it's the surest sign yet the Episode 1 is genuinely nearing completion.

Half-Life 2: Episode 1 is due out through Steam on April 24th priced $19.99, with a boxed version due through Valve's publishing partner EA around the same time.
