German gaming magazine GameStar did some digging - and probably used their magic eight ball as well - and according to the clues they have dug up, Half-Life 2 just might make it onto store shelves later this year, five years after the release of the original game.
It's all speculation of course, but on a slow Saturday, what else is there to do?
According to the site, a few of the major points are:
- Half-Life 2 will be shown at this year's E3
- the game uses the Quake III engine
- the sequel will be "darker" than the first game
- Gordon Freeman is the main character
- Half-Life 2 will be released this November

Gamestar says they will be releasing some more info on the game in the next few days, and will also have an update on the whereabouts of Team Fortress 2.

Now I don't know whether this is true or not, It's a bit strange that a German site has the info first.
But if this is true it is one of the best kept secrets in the gaming industry, there have been NO leaked shot or early code.
If it IS true I also owe CheapAlert an appolagy :P
But I wonder what valve are going to sue that D3 license for?
