Remember about 7 months ago when mysteriously Valve's F2P shooter game Team Fortress 2 started to receive some love from their Twitter account and some updates aimed at squashing exploits and other long-standing issues?
At the time, speculation on new content updates started swirling and players were happy to see the game wasn't just left out to dry as it seemed it had been given that the last "new" content update was back in 2017.
That could change this summer according to a blog post (yes, an ACTUAL blog post... the last one was July 2020!) on the Team Fortress 2 site, one calling to action Steam Workshop creators.
"The last few Team Fortress summer events have only been item updates. But this year, we're planning on shipping a full-on update-sized update — with items, maps, taunts, unusual effects, war paints and who knows what else?! Which means we need Steam Workshop content! YOUR Steam Workshop content!" says the post.
When is the update? We don't know. What's in it? We don't know. Will it just be a summer event? That one we do have an answer of sorts as the team bills it as, "this as-yet-unnamed, un-themed, but still very exciting summer-situated (but not summer-themed)."
Either way, it's nice to see the gang back together apparently working on new content and this crazy tech called "blog posts."
UPDATE 2/15/2023: It seems Valve has changed the language on the blog post now. The main changes make the update seem smaller than THEY originally said. The new version reads, "The last few Team Fortress summer events have only been item updates. But this year, we're planning on shipping a full-on holiday-sized update — with items, maps, taunts, unusual effects, war paints, and other community-contributed fixes for the game! Which means we need Steam Workshop content! YOUR Steam Workshop content!"
Obviously the change that has most people upset is going form an "update-sized update" to a "holiday-sized" update, seeming to say that the actual update would be smaller than most had though. "Who know what else," referencing content was also replaced in the post with "other community-contributed fixes for the game."
Thanks to MMOBomber Khaki Cap for sending us the change!
