    And still nothing...



    Give it to me straight, Gaben... is there a Half Life 3 coming at any point in the future?

    Edit: I honestly think that Gabe is trolling us all and is waiting for us to forget about the idea of Half Life 3 and then will spring it on us when we least expect it.

    I think Valve is waiting for VR to take off

    I really hope not. I don't want to play Half Life in VR...

    I can't really say I'm looking forward to it any more. To be honest, 2007 was such a strong year that I moved on from HL2 pretty quick.

    Plus, they gave us Dota 2.

    I have never really been a HL fan but I would be intrigued to see it with today's capabilities.

    If Half-Life 3 ever comes out, it'd be a reason to get a new gen console... or a really good PC.

    Calling Episode 3 Half-Life 3 is a big pet peve of mine and bothers me more than any rational person would allow. ITS GOING TO BE HALF-LIFE 2 EPISODE 3 damnit!!

    I've pretty much given up hope of it ever coming out. I used to think they were waiting for Source Engine 2 to finish and use it as a launch title to showcase its abilities, but I dont even think thats happening. Epic Games has no problem making new Unreal engines so time or manpower cant be an excuse.
    People like to say the writer of the series retiring as a sign that its dead. I dont buy it, im sure the HL2 story arch was finished a long time ago, its just everything else that hasnt been completed. I think they just lost incentive to make it, and with the "upper management" (i know they have a flat employee structure) probably pushing everyone else to work on other products instead like DotA2 and TF2 hats, VR, Steam controller, and Steam itself.
    Episode 3 if it did come out would have to be a pretty different game from Episode 2. Game play has evolved and improved over the past 10 years that while HL2 and its 2 episodes are some of my favorite games ever, and I still find them extremely fun to play, an Episode 3 with the same gameplay would just feel dated though.

    My only motivation for working at Valve right now is to find out what kind of state HL2:EP3 is in. I just want answers, even if they're not the ones I want.
