Valve filed for a trademark for “Half-Life 3” in Europe this past Sunday, September 29, through the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market, confirmed through its online registry.

First spotted by users on NeoGAF, the trademark is listed under “computer game software” and was filed by owner Valve Corporation. As of this post, the company has not filed for a similar trademark through the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

Fans have been clamoring for the next entry in the Half-Life series since Half-Life 2: Episode Two was released October 10, 2007. A third and final episode was announced that same year, but has existed solely as vaporware since, with only concept art proving its existence. Six years later, it seems far more likely that Episode 3 will be released as a fully realized Half-Life installment—the third proper installment, incidentally.

Previous Half-Life 3 sightings include mention in a leaked internal project tracker of Valve’s and on a Valve employee’s shirt during a 2011 event.

Speculation among the EGM Crew is that the announcement might come during this year’s Spike TV Video Game Awards.
