Says "not Episode 3"...doesn't say "not Half Life 3".

Valve 'surprise' isn't Half-Life 2: Episode 3 - Gabe

Postby gothchild » 07 Jun 2010, 11:09

I was wondering if they were going to come and rubbish it, as it was already deemed a fake. Sucks though, hope that means Half Life 3! :D

If there's no Half Life news, I, along with other fans, will be royally p**sed. It's not a good way to treat fans, to keep them in the dark for so long.
Everyone sucks, just don't tell them

Agreed. I was very much in the group of people that enjoyed the mystique of Half Life - remaining confident that they've got something big going on. But they are now taking the p**s a bit.

Put together what's logical: Half Life is Valve's most famous and profitable franchise, so it's pretty much a given that they're in the process of developing a new Half Life title. The only question is whether the large gap is because it's a bigger Half Life title than they're letting on, or because something's gone wrong creatively and the game has stalled.

Everybody in the world of gaming is praying for the former.

Hope its an update to Day of Defeat Source making it as good as the old 1.3 game with all the maps too but in source.

I'd bet any money that image is a fake. It lacks class, it looks home-made.

Look at any of Valve's recent posters/ads, they all s**t on that thing.

This is valve all over, they have been doing this type of thing for years and years. They drip feed us when they want to (very rarely) then when some news does eventually come its dissapointing to say the least. Its gabbe newells fault, he loves it.

I have no doubt there will be a L4D3, but not while they still have L4D2 content coming out. At the moment they're doing Mutations, and then they have the L4D1 DLC coming out. L4D3 maybe at the end of next year? We'll see.

Yeah... http://www.thebitbag.com/2010/06/04/hal ... /#comments

I'm sticking with HL3 (and new TF / CS), 64 bit on Mac Snow Leopard + Win 7 and a release date of March 2011.
