The Half-Life 3 thread of closure and memorium

Recommended Posts

Yeah, let's talk about that. Because the bump was intentional. We have a lot of industry professionals here. I'm not expecting Valve employees to open their mouths. But together, with your information about the industry, we should be able to paint a clearer picture of what's going. We know Source 2 is in development. The rest is speculation.

 

I think it's safe to assume that episode 3 will not come. Half Life 2 is almost 10 years old. Episode 2 is 6 years old. Why does it take so long? Is it even in production? Why doesn't Valve say anything about it. I really don't get it. A simple:"Yes, it's in development" or "No, it's been cancelled for the time being" would suffice. Why torture your fan base so much?

 

Any insights would be much appreciated. Let's get the discussion started.

long story short: being all secretive about the developement of a widely anticipated game = more money since everbody will be hyped as fuck. I also find it hard to believe that hl3 is not being developed since that would mean that valve would be missing out on a huge chance to make some mad bucks and expand their franchise. I also find it hard to believe that valve would disappoint such a big fanbase by not releasing hl3. on the other hand, every year valve waits with releasing hl3, expectations will grow so I can't say I'm slowly getting more sceptical about the silence around hl3 since the wait has been this long already...

Read about the development process of hl2, they scrapped what they had and started again. So I suppose we should multiply that be a factor of 10 for hl3. I appreciate that valve like to make the best product they can but cmon guys I'm not gonna be alive forever. I need my hl fix.
