Team Fortress 2 fans uncover fascinating future update possibilities

Team Fortress 2 just got a hefty update, but there's some evidence it contains the seeds of even more to come.


TF2: Gun Mettle launched last week and brought with it paid content with unique weapons and regular challenges.

That's all very exciting, and the stack of new maps and major rebalancing released for free are also pretty great, but there's something even more interesting lurking in there.

Kotaku has a great run down of what's been turned up by players and fans so far, but in summary there are three main suggestions for what Valve has planned for Team Fortress 2:

  • Competitive matchmaking
  • Spy vs Engineer

Imagine if it were all three and the next major update delivers competitive matchmaking for Spy vs. Engineer in space. Yes please. Hit the source link above for all the evidence and theorising behind this glorious future vision.
