Ever since the launch of Half Life 2 Episode 2 fans of the franchise are waiting for the third game in the series. Over the years Half Life 3 has generated a lot of hype and still there is no word about the game from Valve.
Speaking with GameInformer, an anonymous Valve source has revealed that there is no such thing as Half Life 3 at Valve as the company did not ever promise that there will be a third game in the franchise.
There is no such thing as Half-Life 3. Valve has never announced a Half-Life 3. The closest they’ve come is after Half-Life 2, they said there would be three episodes. We only got two of those. That is arguably an unfulfilled promise. Anything else that we might think about as a full game or sequel has never been promised.
He added that with Steam, Left For Dead, Portal 2 and other projects, Valve has to time to concentrate on Half Life 3.
here’s something with that third episode that isn’t sitting right with Gabe and other people at Valve. Ultimately it just starves to death. The people that tried to give it life find themselves better off working on other projects. What you have left is nothing going on with Half-Life.
He revealed that why Valve won’t even talk about the game is that every time they talk about it “the hunger comes back. That’s why they ignore it. The pain subsides with time”.
Do you think Valve should develop the third entry in the franchise or just let it go? Let us know in the comments below.
