    Half-Life 3, L4D3 and Source 2 lists found on Valve Jira

    Update:

    There's more at the link now including more tasks and additional information.

    We have also recently received some more information about the contents of several of the project groups and, while we cannot check the Jira archive to verify the contents, we have no reason to doubt our source. According to our anonymous source, the main Left 4 Dead 3 group contains around 68 people, while one of the subgroup contains "about 40". The total number of employees contributing to the Left 4 Dead 3 project groups combines to make it Valve's third largest project, showing that the game is or was in full development.
    ---

    Evidence of several internal projects at Valve including Half-Life 3, Left 4 Dead 3, Source 2 and many others have been discovered from a mailing list found within project management and bug tracking software, Jira.

    Valve were recently forced to react to an issue with Jira. A metaphorical window was left open which allowed people to publicly access Valve's internal tickets. Valve were quick to shut down public access to their Jira database, so we recommend you don't attempt to access it.

    The images submitted to us from an anonymous source show several mailing list groups of interest, although we do not have the full list at this stage. The first image shows the mailing group for "Half-Life 3" including 42 employees in this cabal, which we believe to be quite a significant number, given Valve employ approximately 300~ individuals. The names of individuals in this cabal are from various development disciplines, many of which you're likely to recognize.

    The second image includes the part of the second page for the Half-Life 3 group, including ex-valve composer, Kelly Bailey. We hypothesize these mailing lists aren't updated when employees leave, only their mailboxes are suspended. We do however know this list is current, as Paul Pepera, who also appears on the list, only joined Valve in March 2013 after leaving Halo and Destiny game creators Bungie.

    The image also shows several "Left 4 Dead 3" mailing lists. We don't know who are in these cabals but, based on these images, we can estimate games further in the development pipeline have multiple mailing lists, suggesting Left 4 Dead 3 is potentially in active development. Unfortunately, Half-Life 3 only had one group suggesting it's either inactive or in developmental infancy.

    The third image shows several Source 2 groups. Source 2's development is no secret, however the number of groups suggest the engine is very deep into development, which comes as no surprise.
    The fourth and final image, shown below, highlights several other groups including the curiously named "The Grange".

    Throughout the images you will notice some groups for extra-curricular activities or clubs/societies which are used by Valve employees. Some of these are very obscure, but known by our researchers (part of the job description here at ValveTime!) which has allowed us to verify these images are legitimate and are most definitely taken from the Valve Jira database.

    Source.

    It would be great if we could actually get a Half-Life 3 announcement in our lifetime because I really enjoyed the games, Valve?

    Interesting. Maybe HL3 will come to the PS5? :P

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.
