Some lucky soul managed to put this on Steam's facebook page, so I guess Valve's worst kept secret is out? 
 
Also, look carefully, you'll see someone recognisable.

Looks like a book cover, but the date makes me question that theory. Probably just part 2 to the E3 surprise.

You're right, if I look closely, I do see someone I recognise.
Oh wait, that's my reflection.
Seriously, there's no-one there.

@august: so far no, someone posted this as a comment on Steam's FB page, if it looks legit, then like Nate mentioned, it can only mean great things. It seems plausible that a new HL game has been in development for some time in Valve. So for now, it is a legit image/cover/poster.

considering valve, this is probably something to trick us. 
 
..then again, it's too difficult to keep secrets now.

That must be the surprise they were talking about when they cancelled that Portal event.

Hope that is legit, and my God, that is creepy. I think this is a proper image to use if you try to explain what the term "you will shit bricks" mean...

I can kinda see the gman in there. 
 
Also, can't find the pic on Steam's facebook, so maybe they went to the trouble to delete it. Or not.

I've never had a chance to play Half-Life because I never/don't have/had a gaming PC... *sigh*

This is definitely one of valve's tricks, the count down is only going to lead to another count down then another and another and another and another and another and another and oh hey look, I see the G man in the middle.

@AlwaysAngry: It'll sun on whatever you have right now. Unless it's a mac. They'll probably put out for mac in the next couple months. Also there's a port for the ps2.

So I can get the original on the PS2? That means I could then get the Orange Box and have all the Half-Life games...

I think an announcement for EP3 at E3 is finally going to go down. I think it's in coinciding with Steam being released for Mac, and Halflife 2 and EP1 finally getting Steam Achievements.

Don't bother. Half Life will always be better enjoyed on the PC. Just save up your money and get it there.

It's just valve playing with us, as usual. I both love and hate valve for doing stuff like that.

Ye theres s PS2 port (which I assume Ebay/Amazon etc. would give you access to), its the full original single player game and an original co-op campaign (Half Life: Decay I believe) that is separate from the single-player game. I remember playing this port for a while and its great, while I would rather play it on PC this is a great port that looks pretty good (for the time and game in question) and controls pretty well. Although if you can play it on PC I would suggest that, a laptop with no graphics card could probably run it at this point.

I wouldn't be too surprised if they skipped episode 3 and just made it Half-Life 3.

I'm REALLY trying hard to not get hyped for the potential Ep. 3 announcement at E3, but stuff like this is making that damned near impossible! Like G-Man's face hidden in there, too....spooky.

I'm wondering where it's from as well.  It has to be Edge or Game Informer, but I'd put my money on Edge, if it's true.

Yes, I'm preparing for the best of this.  Meaning I'll be waiting a minimum of two years before this comes out.

Seriously, I'm impressed by how good Valve are at keeping things secret. Since Episode 2 launched the only thing leaked has been a couple of concept art shots. Imagine how tight security hes to be over there.

All this teaser stuff Valve does is more exciting for me then actualy playing most new games. I've been waiting for any kind of news from HL2:E3 and I hope we get some soon. To be honest I'd be stoked if they just announced a novel set in the Half-Life 2 Universe. I'd buy that.

If the new game gets announced on an all  new engine, I will get rid of my GTX 275 and go all out with a 5870.

@Llama: nice find. 
  
It would be more eventful if valve just went ahead and announce HL3, I don't think they wanted to be under the episode shadow for 6 years, considering the delay that EP2 got...
