Valve updates Half-Life 2 after 15 years

Half-Life 2 was just updated, does this mean Half-Life 3 is on its way? Probably not

Valve has surprised gamers with a new update to Half-Life 2 after 15 years, with some super minor things being nipped and tucked in its latest update.

The new update is for Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2: Episode One, Half-Life 2: Episode Two, Half-Life 2: Lost Coast, and Half-Life: Source. The fixes seem super simple, with a "hitch when saving games", an issue with SteamVR, missing sounds on combine soldiers has been fixed and so too has NPCs not blinking.

I'd much prefer Half-Life 3 being announced or even Half-Life 2: Episode Three, but an update to Half-Life 2 after all this time? What a re you smoking, Valve... and why haven't you passed it along yet?
