Half Life 3 Confirmed?: 10 Huge Rumours You Should Know

Half Life 3 Confirmed?: 10 Huge Rumours You Should Know

Is the wait FINALLY over?

Fans have gone to great lengths over the years to get the attention of Valve and Mr. Gabe Newell the founder and CEO of the company to recognize the importance of finishing the Half Life series. As a fan of this game it has been a long and dreary road waiting for news [cue the sad piano music]; at many points I have almost given up hope. My biggest problem is I am not a patient person by default sooo waiting over a decade for the completion of my beloved series is a bit much. Considering none of my romantic relationships ever lasted this long…seems a bit sad but whatever.


What is even more interesting is in recent days the rumours are flying left and right again like a massive food fight in the cafeteria there goes the potatoes! Even just in the last 24 hours people are talking again about the possible confirmation of Half Life 3. The forums on subreddit are talking about it and its possible incorporation with Portal 3…here. Don’t expect a whole lot.

Gabe Newell said in an interview to the Washington Post, “So, if somebody becomes the group manager of X, they’re going to really resist it when X is not what you want to do in the next round of games. You don’t want them to sort of burrow into that — you want them to recognize that being really good at Half-Life level design is not as nearly as valued as thinking of how to design social multi-player experiences. You’ve had them feel like they have an organization and title tied up to something when the key is to just continue to follow where the customers are leading.” Gabe has also said on other occasions he is only willing to release a Half Life 3 if the Valve team is behind the development but he isn’t willing to give us a Half Life 3 release date, just yet.

Just me and my trusty rusty blood covered crowbar! It's us agaisnt the world...

Basically, Gabe seems wiling to listen to the fans but he also is in a tough place to keep the game attracting new audiences by incorporating social gaming elements which could turn out to be somewhat problematic for some of us diehard Half Lifers.

But, without any more lollygagging let us get to it!

However long the wait is for HL3, the gamers who like can be certain that it will either be the best game they ever played or the biggest let-down of the century. I even saw a tumblr post the other day basically saying "Don't talk to Half-Life fans about hiatuses; we've been in one for 8 years and we still don't even know if the third game will ever come out.

My bet is that Valve is just waiting for the right time to develop and launch the game. They probably are already planning the storyline in house right now

I hope this game coming out is TRUE! All of the rumors listed here are the ones the internet seems to go wild over...obviously Valve won't confirm or deny anything. But fingers *crossed* in the next few holiday seasons it will hit the shelves! =)
