A fan-made Half-Life 2: Remastered Collection is currently in the works, and it will release on Steam soon.

This collection, which has been revealed thanks to a new entry that has been recently added to the Steam Database, is in development by the same team that has worked on the amazing Half-Life 2 Update. Despite it not being an official release, it seems like this upcoming Remastered Collection is being created with Valve’s consent, according to known leaker Tyler McVicker.
