Here is the full quote by Gabe:   

We have three pretty big surprises in the next 12 months at least; I can guarantee you people are going to be surprised at stuff we do. That isn't going to stop anytime soon. I'm just laughing because…people will be shocked again.

I'm hoping for something Half-Life related but it's Valve so I'm also prepared to be disappointed. My guess is we'll be adding "12 months" to Valve time in Sep' 11.

It's really just a bad pun for Left 4 Dead 3.

Does episode 3 count as a surprise?

One of these things has to be half-life related. Has to be. Maybe steam for linux as another? I don't know.

Half life 3? 
Counter strike 3? 
 
Then I'd go Dota or Left for dead

If one of them isn't Half life...something!  I will personally shit a brick and die.

I'm disappointed that their big news is that there will be some kind of news in a year's time. 
 
As long as they keep updating TF2, I'll be satiated.

episode 3 will be the DotA game they trademarked

I'm standing by my prediction that when Episode 3 gets announced, there will be a trailer. "Episode 3" will show up and the word Episode will change to Half-Life.

  • Another large TF2 update
  • Left 4 Dead 3
  • DotA: Source
  
Sure, it's not going to be these things. This is just to show how it's not going to be Half-Life.
