Valve has 47 people working on Half Life 3

#1Shadow CloudPosted 10/2/2013 9:15:37 AM
The first of those is called Half Life 3 Core and consists of 10 people. The second is simply called Half-Life 3 and has 46 people listed. So in total, Valve has 56 people 47 people counting overlaps working on the game right now. It seems likely the Core team is focusing more on actually getting the game up and running as well as finalizing the (core) gameplay and story line. Interestingly, the first name listed on both teamís pages is Adam Foster, who produced the Minerva mod for Half-Life 2. As for what the other team is doing, Iíd guess most of them are on content creation duties . So level modeling, character modeling, texturing, and scripting the levels in their basic form.

I would think they would be working on a new engine first.

Have said there would be a new SDK for Source like 2 years ago and then never said another word.

Valve needs something big to push Steam OS, it'll be like how Half-Life 2 required Steam

We already know they've been working on Source 2 (or whatever they're gonna call their new engine). GabeN himself said that much. It still wouldn't surprise me if they plan to use HL3 to introduce the new engine and its new features. And I suspect at least part of the delay has been in making it work as well on Linux as it does on Windows.

Ricochet 2 is in the works? Hell yeah!

I predicted before that HL3 was going to be one mega game combining Portal 3, HL3, and Ricochet 2. This pretty much confirms it.

There are two projects mentioned: "Half-Life 3" and "Half-Life 3 Core". I imagine core would be some sort of underlying game technology, possibly an engine.
