How was your weekend? With any luck it was suitably awesome, and to start your week off right we have some interesting news for you uncovered by 4Chan and Reddit: Valve's Gabe Newell has confirmed that they are building the Source 2 engine, but haven't yet had the game to roll it out with.

Irony at its best.

Gabe stuck around to chat with the fans afterwards, and after warning against the inevitable Half-Life 3 questions, was asked whether Valve was working on a new Source engine, to which Gabe responded:
