Still the fact that they are apparently working on a new game means that game will probably come out before Episode 3...
Somewhere in the video you see an sort of alien control room with an obvious Half-Life HUD. In the room you see an swarm of ... moving around the room. I just check, but the videos are put offline. Maybe if you look up swarm design test on youtube you can find a copy

Thnx XJR. Rumors are that swarm are likely the boids from half-Life 1. It's possible EP3 is set in the combine overworld or even Xen, who knows.

In my heart though I'm hoping it's totally related to the new Half-Life.

They kind of resemble Stukabats, don't they?
Apparantly it was a real rough version of the citadel falling apart that was cut from HL2. I thought those creatures were Boids. I see the Stukabats were erased from the game

He's obviously testing something- maybe the swarm ai etc...
However there is much more of a HL connection here than simply the HUD
The map environment is the Xen indoor factory areas or based on that. The moment I saw it I had a mini flashback to one of those later HL1 levels with the grunt factories and the platforms... The wall and floor textures just fit. You can even observe the reduced gravity of Xen when the player jumps at 0:25s in the youtube video- just like in some of the Xen areas of HL1
