"Half-Life 2: Remastered Collection" is reportedly releasing on Steam soon with permission from American video game company Valve.

Fans have spotted "Half-Life 2: Remastered Collection" listed on SteamDB. The game updates the first-person shooter title with all of its episodes to a contemporary standard. Listings of the game have been on the platform since last year, but the page has been dormant ever since.

Based on the game's page, "Half-Life 2: Remastered Collection" is not developed by Valve. Instead, it is helmed by Filip Victor, a modder responsible for the "Half-Life: Update" mod, which was released on Steam a few years ago.

Tyler McVicker, the insider who focuses on news related to Valve and Steam, offered more details in connection with the game. The insider tweeted about being able to confirm the project's legitimacy. According to him, the game is being developed by the team behind "HL: Update." Moreover, the game has Valve's consent and is "coming soon to Steam."

For those wondering what the project is about, it is the next iteration of the mod "Half-Life: Update." The mod, which was released in 2015, is a free and extensive update for the first-person shooter title that features bug fixes, beautiful lighting and a brand new "Community Commentary Mode." It is available to those who own "Half-Life 2" on PC.

It looks like the "Remastered Collection" would feature the base game as well as Episodes 1 and 2. Unfortunately, the creator revealed only a few details about it. The modder, however, addressed fans in a thread about its previous mod. 

Victor even shared how good "Half-Life 2: Remastered Collection" is compared to its predecessors. "The new version will put hl2update/episodes to shame. But sry no release date tho," the modder said.

Despite this, many believe that although the game already has Valve's nod, it's also possible that the video game company never approves of the project. However, looking at projects like "Black Mesa" and "Hunt Down," there is still hope that the project could be released.

"Half-Life" is one of the most noteworthy games of all time. It's a shame that it has not seen any iterations these days.
