Data strings in the latest Counter-Strike 2 update hint at two new Valve games, and one of them might just be Half-Life related



A Half-Life fan’s favourite pastime (aside from actually playing Half-Life games) is latching onto the tiniest hope that a new Half-Life might be just around the corner. I say this as one such eternally optimistic Half-Life fan. Which is why I started vibrating with excitement at a single data string hidden in the latest Counter-Strike 2 update.

The string was uncovered by the Valve-oriented content creator “Gabe Follower”. It was actually one of two chunks of code extracted from the update that hint at two different games, but we’ll deal with the Half-Life one first as it’s the most specific and straightforward. In a tweet earlier this week, Gabe Follower posted an image of the code, which includes the line “type = hlx_2d_basic”.
