Without a doubt, Valve has some of the most iconic franchises in the video game industry. With the recent announcement of Counter-Strike 2, the community remains optimistic that the company is working on other titles from its extensive IP library. Now, new clues feed those hopes.
What happens is that a user noticed some very interesting information on the LinkedIn profile of one of Valve’s employees. Specifically, artist Boyang Zhu reports in his professional record that he has been working on an “unannounced project” since January of this year. Unfortunately, he does not reveal more information about it.

Is Valve working on a secret video game?
While the above is more than enough to get the community excited, there is still more cloth to cut from. Level designer Michael Anderson, who reportedly left Valve in early 2022, revealed on his LinkedIn profile that he worked on an unannounced project during his tenure at the company.
“I created a variety of prototypes with my team focused on ambitious and never-before-seen gameplay for an unannounced project. I developed the AI, the player mechanics and the puzzles from 0”, explained the designer in the social network oriented to the labor market.

Due to Michael Anderson mentioning that he worked on a puzzle title, fans theorize that a third installment of Portal is in development. However, other users recall that Half-Life also has physics-focused puzzles, while more players point out that references to Left 4 Dead 3 were found in the Counter-Strike 2 Beta files. Simply put, nothing is clear. at the moment and there are many possibilities in the air.
It’s hard to tell if Gabe Newell’s company is up to something. In case it is, it is possible that it is a new installment of its already established franchises. However, it is possible that it is something new, since the level designer explained that the gameplay of the project was something “never seen before”.
Last year, Valve revealed that it has many titles in development. Shortly after, a clue surfaced that one of the projects was named NEON PRIME. Either way, we recommend taking this information with a grain of salt and waiting for the company to make a statement on the matter.
