Xbox One owners get excited. As you all know Microsoft has teased Big Surprises for Gamescom. Recently the Dota 2 Workshop Tools was discovered as a soft launch for Source Engine 2. A Reddit user delved deeper into the Workshop Tools’ and found some points that indicate presence of Source 2 files, but theirs more. On further investigation, it revealed that the engine might be coming to Xbox One.

I did further digging and found an article posted Feb 26th with the creator of DayZ, Dean Hall saying exciting things were coming to Xbox One.

And if i'm not mistaken Gabe Newell used to work at Microsoft.
In the end could MS and Valve have partnered, could steam streaming come to Xbox One, or steam games come to Xbox One. Who knows, but Microsoft said they have Big Surprises at Gamecom, could this be one of them?

Might just be code for games on Xbox One to run on Source Engine 2.

IMO, that is VERY unlikely to happen. VERY unlikely. But if it did, it would literally be the greatest day in the history of gaming.

Indifferent. Wouldn't be surprised. Microsoft's probably gonna do any and everything in it's power to bring the xbox one to parity or superior to PS4 since it's behind. Steam's on PS4 right? So Microsoft will probably be more willing to bring it

I don't think Steam is on PS4.
