If it's L4D3 I'll fire Gabe.

My bet is on a DOTA based game.

Valve has trademarked both "DOTA2" and "DOTA3"

Is it too much to hope for HL2 Ep 3?

Don't know Chief, I think I'd prefer L4D3 than DoTA.

Although I've seen suggestions that Valve's DoTA actually stands for:
  • Defense of the Akubra
  • Half Life: Defense of the Antlions
In which case -

I almost kinda want valve to do a full on MMO shooter. Sadly, it'll probably be DOTA, although that's still exciting. I'll be interesting to see if they're doing it cross platform on consoles too.

I don't know if we can still use the DNF jokes.

The licence has changed hands. 3D realms, formerly Apogee software and the creators of the original duke platformers and Duke 3D have sold everything off.

Gearbox (makers of Borderlands, Brother In Arms, Half Life Blue Shift) snapped up the DNF licence (or 2K did) so they're doing their own version of the game. Gearbox have a very solid history of delivering when on acquired IPs (although I'm still waiting on their Aliens game) but none the less I'd gamble my entire savings given even odds that DNF will be released in under 24 months.
