Half Life 3 Was Announced a Decade Ago, Should a Comic Conclude the Series Now?

Half Life is a mirage we have been chasing of a really long time. Formally known as Half Life 2: Episode 3, this game was announced a decade ago and there is still no word on when it will release.

For years, we had nothing but hints and rumors about its arrival. Fans grasping at straws ever since Valve and GabeN stopped mentioning Half Life 3 and started to avoid questions about the game.

From 2006 to early 2008, GabeN talked confidently about Half Life 3 but in the later part of 2008 he started to avoid the question.

Saying that he has nothing to say and will share when something comes up. His statements changed from “don’t have anything to say” to outright ignoring the question in the following years, showing his annoying publicly whenever the question came up.

Something happened between February 2008 to August 2008 that changed the future of Half Life, something that has probably buried this franchise forever but we may never know what it was.

What should be more concerning for the community is that Half Life series writer Marc Laidlaw retired in early 2016.

Half Life 3 still exists in Steam Database leaks, data mining of Valve games, trolling from Valve etc.

It is possible that Half Life 3 may never release and its story may never wrap up. However, Valve owes fans a conclusion and at this point it doesn’t matter if it is through a video game. A detailed comic for the final events of Half Life 2: Episode 3 will do as well.

It would be very anti-climatic but at least we’ll have closure so hardcore fans can move on.
