Half-Life 3: Possibility or Teasing?
Gabe Newell is famous for his love to tease devoted fans of Half-Life and other Valve games, but even he can’t be so bad to joke about Half-Life 3. This is not the first time when the co-founder and head director of Valve mentions the possibility of upcoming Half-Life 3 release. Half-Life 2 came out in 2004, and since that time fans don’t leave the hope.
What Have Been Actually Said?
Gabe Newell mentioned the possibility for Half-Life 3 production during the launch party for headset Valve Index VR. He definitely knows how to create tension. Fans received the last portion of Half-Life 2 edition Episode 2 back in 2007. This shooter game was called the best game of the decade and received so many awards that we will get tired just by counting them. And even after all these years, we are eager to raise and help Gordon Freeman to protect humanity again. What kind of person can leave the game without telling the whole story to the end? Well, apparently, this person is Gabe Newell.
He talked about the milestones in general, mentioning the Source, Half-Life, Team Fortress 2 and Dota. Newell did not actually give any specific date, except saying “Someday” and no “Someplace”. There was no Half-Life 3 mentioning. And yet, we all know what he was talking about when he said that “someday the number two will lead us to shiny integer” on a mountain, glowing. Could it be more obvious?
What We Understood
OMG! There will be Half-Life 3 someday. It is not the first teaser from the head of the company, about the new sequel to the really popular and bellowed game. Who does not want to release the game that may be more successful than Pokemon Go? We were left with nothing at the end of episode 2 plus sobbing at the background. Yes, we know that in 2006 Newell has already called Half-Life 2: Episode 2 the real Half-Life 3, but after that, he still teased fans that the story will continue.
