Someone on NeoGAF found this trademark info earlier today. The site has gone down due to traffic overload, but someone caught the images before it went down.

This isn't any kind of guarantee of Half-Life 3, but if they use every extension they are allowed to use, they have around 2.75 years to release something tangible.

I hope that, now that there's a ton of internet buzz about this, Valve will make some sort of an announcement soon, but it could still be a while before we know if this pans out.

Again, this is nothing more than a trademark, and I'm in no way saying HL3 is confirmed.

Still. Seems to signal possible good news.

That said, we can all dream right?

/meanwhile at valve...

Gaben: "Hey so yeah we are like 10 years out on Half-life 3 so what do we have?"

Gaben Prime: "Well, we could put out a press release about Ricochet 2."

Gaben: "Nah, lets save that for December. How bout filing a trademark for Half-life 3?"

Gaben Prime: "Totally. RAISES FOR EVERYONE!"

I mean, I might have the tone, content, facts and everything wrong but its possible it went like that.

Wait hang on... Gaben and Gaben Prime? There's more than one? That explains a lot, actually.

Yeah, he was created when he went back in time after injecting the red matter into a Sun. It wasn't entirely supposed to happen, but he does offer advice to Gaben from time to time.
