Why can't Gaben just come out and say, "We have no plans for releasing Hl3."

Why can't people just let it go? There are numerous HL2 mods, you can make your own levels and games with Forge etc. and there are more than a few cinematic FPS titles out there. You're literally swimming in a sea of choices when it comes to gaming (not all of them great, but more than few standout or at least "good" titles) and you're harping on one game series.


Do you remember how Episode 2 ended?

Because it is so much more fun trolling your audience. In fact, the audience is trolling THEMSELVES. Newell has said precious little about HL3 over the years and yet people continuously talk about its existence or non-existence. If I were him, I'd keep the charade going too. Must be hilarious quietly watching how desperate your fans can get.

Every Half Life game has been revolutionary for the time they came out. I'm guessing Valve are waiting to develop a new engine to make the next one just as revolutionary.


This^. It will be on their brand new engine and I have no doubt it will look better than anything created thus far.

People are already buging Valve nonstop about HL3. They have no reason to say anything until its ready and its ready when its ready. Gamers wait years and whine that it isn't magically out now so it will never happen. Thats why they aren't saything anything.

Valve is waiting for modders or some small studio to start working on a fan-made "Half-Life 3".
They'll then buy them up and make it the official HL3.

Actually I don't, though I played through Episode 1 a few years ago and just bought Episode 2 during the summer sale (so please don't divulge any details). Regardless of how it ends, I'll probably just shrug and play one of the other games in my backlog.

i don't mind if they take 3 more years as long as it's good, and not a big big disappointment.. because we all know people don't like disappointments.

There's no conceivable way it wouldn't be a disappointment now. It'll suffer from Diablo/Deus Ex syndrome.

Diablo didn't suffer solely or even primarily because of that, but rather the modern twists like RMAH and always-on DRM and the limited skill trees.

Don't be delusional. No matter what they had released people would've complained.
