Half-Life is considered by many to be one of the greatest video game franchises ever created. Despite reports as recently as this past August that a third installment of the series was not in development, it now looks like it is going to happen.

Gamespot is reporting that Valve has filed a trademark application for Half-Life 3.

The trademark application (via NeoGAF) was filed September 29 with the European Union’s Office of Harmonization for the Internal Market (OHIM).

It covers “computer game software; electronic game software, downloadable game software via a global computer network and wireless devices; and video game software,” among other things.

The last release of a Half-Life game was Half-Life 2, Episode 2, back in 2007.
