The honest truth is that Half Life is a dead IP.

Half Life should be dead at this point because no matter what they release at this point it'll be a let down. Even if they handed out episode 3 today for free it wouldn't match the expectations created by a 7 year cliffhanger..
Some roads you shouldn't go down because maps used to say there'd be dragons there. Now they don't, but that don't mean the dragons aren't there.

Just because they don't annualized it until it's milked dry doesn't mean it's dead. The amount of crying from people and trolling from Valve is proof enough. I assume they want to finish making a brand new engine first before announcing anything or they're actually smart and know hyping up the game 2+ years in advance like some other developers is just a dumb idea.

I don't know how you can't argue this.

Lack of proof.

Though if anything, the hype is going to raise expectations so much that the game will be a disappointment.

Usually they're only dead when the company is either dead or shows no interest. Valve is one of the most famous names in PC Gaming thanks to Steam and they know full well that the series name is guaranteed money, so it's pretty absurd to think it's dead just because they haven't milked it yet.

Is Fallout dead too?

No? HL2 Episode 2 came out 7 years ago. Fallout NV came out 4 years ago and there were rumors of Fallout 4 at E3

Yes, but there was no actual FO4 announces at E3, and FO came out in 2008 (?).

Fallout is dead, confirmed.

FONV came out on 22 Oct 2010
HL2:Ep2 came out on 10 Oct 2007
