Team Fortress 2 Status

Team Fortress 2's development and status has been kept under wraps since Valve switched to an internally built engine. Doug Lombardi explains why:
When Robin Walker, Yahn Bernier and John Cook -- who are some of the leaders on the development team -- first started going toward the path they wanted to with Team Fortress 2, toward the game that they wanted to make once they'd defined it, it became clear that the Half-Life technology base was going to be pretty limiting. It has been said 'on the record' that there's a new internally-built engine, and TF2 will use that. So rather than showing more old screenshots and stuff that's in development while we're building the new engine, we decided to put it back into the pot and cook it a bit more. We'll start showing it again once it gets to a certain point, and we're now getting there.

There are a lot of rumours flying around suggesting that it's never coming out, but it's absolutely still in development. We hold our quality bars up really high. When people finally get to see it, they're going to understand what we've been up to and why we've been busy doing that rather than other things.
As a result, all preview content in this section is from the previous engine design; we'll leave it up for archival interest. Rest assured, when new information comes out, we'll be right on top of it. Thanks for visiting!
