Whether it’s called Half-Life: Episode 3 or just Half-Life 3, here’s a video put together by CrowbCat which collects interviews dating back as far as 2006 in which Valve boss Gabe Newell talks about a game that’s never actually coming out.
Valve will never release Half-Life 3. But what if other developers could take a swing at it? PC Gamer asked Cliff Bleszinski, Tripwire’s John Gibson and Bluepoint’s Kynan Pearson for their ideas, which range from VR adventures to time manipulation.
It’s the talk of the Internet: a big Steam “leak” just dropped, and people are saying it “confirms” things like PC ports of Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture and Journey. Oh, and some little game called Half-Life 3. There is, however, reason to be skeptical.
After all these years assuming we’d be finishing Gordon’s story, would the internet be ready for this? Actually, who cares, because this would be pretty great. Wake up and smell the ashes, Alyx...
Concept artist Shane Baxley knows. He knows deep down, like your or I do, that Half-Life 3 is never coming. Only instead of letting it hurt him, he got to work drawing. Dreaming.
Valve's virtual reality demo at the Game Developers Conference melted my brain. Afterward, my mind swam with possibilities. So of course, I ignored most of them and asked the age-old question: "Half-Life?" Surprisingly, Valve actually had an answer for me.
Breathe, people. Relax. Valve isn't holding a press conference today. And despite all the speculation you might have seen on social media or other gaming websites, they don't have some big GDC announcement planned for 3'0'clock this afternoon—3pm on 3/3—so please, don't get your hopes up.
It might seem like an odd fit at first, but Valve's legendary Half-Life series—with all its tug-of-warring alien factions infesting Earth—seems like it was practically made to play host to a strategy game—albeit in the same way the human body was "made" to be host to a headcrab. But hey, this one is free.
Everybody wants Half-Life 3, but this elaborate crowdfunding plot dreamed up by interns at marketing agency McKee Wallwork & Co is not how we're going to get it.
Ever the beacon of hope, resilience, and the most useful coping mechanism of all—denial—I continue to believe we'll see legendary shooter sequel Half-Life 3. Someday. Until then, we can always torture ourselves with great videos that make us desperately want to see more of this world. Good idea, no?
The reader blog over at Jalopnik got a pretty sweet deal last month: for just a few bucks they could get their names on a car that was competing in the famous 24 Hours Nürburgring endurance race in Germany. Thing is, not everyone who contributed went with their real name.
"Enter the Aperture Science Enrichment Center, an abandoned Apple store from hell." Way to completely transform the way I experience a beloved classic, Honest Game Trailers.
Last month Nvidia teased the upcoming release of the original Portal for its Tegra 4-powered Shield gaming portable. Good news — Portal is available on Google Play today. Better news — so is Half-Life 2.
Insert comment about Half-Life 3 taking too long here.
One of the biggest subreddits on the site, r/gaming, was hacked earlier today. I mention this because, instead of just bringing it down, the whole thing was replaced with a single notice.
If you regularly frequent Reddit, or NeoGAF, or Kotaku's tips inbox, you've probably seen people talking about Half-Life 3 today. Don't get too excited—Valve's next shooter hasn't been announced yet. But there are a lot of rumors floating around.
Yes, Half-Life 3 was trademarked in Europe over the weekend, but don't get too excited: trademarks come and go all the time, and this might not mean a thing. We've reached out to Valve to see if they've got anything to say, but we're not getting our hopes up.
Last week, Half-Life 2 voice actor John Patrick Lowrie said that Half-Life 3 wasn't being worked on. Since Lowrie has appeared in many Valve games over the years, his comments were taken seriously. Now, Lowrie says he misspoke.
The most anticipated game on the planet may not even be in production, if you believe the words of a longtime Valve actor who has made appearances in games like Half-Life 2 and Dota 2.
