I wonder if half life 3 will come, if ever... Please be on next gen consoles ..... Not left 4 dead or counter strike. We want HL3.

I'm with you. Everyone will buy it, why not make it. Forget what the artist wants to do. Feed the masses!
Angels3785  +   278d ago
There was 2 of the same letter that occured 3 times in the word "Pipeline"......HL3 Confirmed!!!!!!!

Just a recruiting tool ran by teenagers. Their game developers are still doing their thing. Don't worry.
extermin8or  +   278d ago
L4D3 is fine by me aswell :p
Jyndal  +   278d ago

The_Truth_24_7  +   279d ago

They are really p****** me off. Just as DoTA2 comes to a close and will soon enter it's full release...they start another bloody project.

I mean what the f***

Valve have so many things going on, I'd honestly be surprized at this point if theres anyone working on HL3. We probably could of had it last year or maybe the start of this year if they had worked on it more.
Blachek  +   279d ago
As much as I would love to be playing HL3, I know that I want the best game possible. I hope they take their time and dont rush a product.
Mr_Nuts  +   279d ago
I think they've had plenty of time man

All they are doing is increasing peoples expectations until it gets to a point where they can't possible meet them.
Veni Vidi Vici  +   279d ago
There's a difference between taking your time to get it right and pulling a Duke Nukem Forever.
DeadlyFire  +   278d ago
Woah dude slow down. Do you even know what Valve time means? Valve works on something until its done with minimal people involved in the actual development of their titles. Which is why they take so long.
N4GDgAPc  +   278d ago
If u actually watch the video valve isn't working on this. its a group of kids. Valve just fund it. I don't think valve would hire kids to make HL3.
thehitman  +   279d ago
To be honest when it comes to sequels especially after the 2nd you want normally devs to take as much time as possible being more creative. Sometimes you cant force creativeness and its not always the right time to make a sequel of a certain franchise.

Quite a short article...

But still, Pipeline has done nothing but screw some games up... I see no need for it personally...
Pandamobile  +   279d ago
That's Steam Pipe. This is Pipeline.
CustardTrout  +   279d ago
I tried to pad it out, but right now I have literally nothing to add to it!
Perjoss  +   279d ago
Why are people so strange when it comes to half life 3. Of course they are working on it, even if it is just a skeleton crew. Who cares how long it takes to make, there are MORE than enough great games to play while you wait for HL3.

I'd rather wait a long time for a game then have this stupid Assassins Creed situation where they release a new game in the series every year, more than once a year if you include hand helds.
kwyjibo  +   279d ago
This actually sounds like an awesome project.

Higher education in the US is broken. You pay tens of thousands of dollars for credentials that don't actually help you in your chosen career.

I think it's great that companies are creating alternate ways in. That alternate path has always been viable in the gaming industry, thanks to mods and indies - but the stronger it gets, the better.
Sarobi  +   279d ago
Aside from this not being HL3... I think this is pretty cool.
ALLWRONG  +   279d ago
I don't care anymore about Half Life 3. It has Dukem status now. This sounds good though, and maybe L4D3.

Its only been 6 years.
ninjahunter  +   278d ago
This is true, Heck, if it takes another 6 years it might just make as big a leap as starcraft did.
MidnytRain  +   278d ago
"It's only been 6 years..."

"It's only been 12 years..."

"It's only been 20 years..."

I'm pretty sure we're looking at Kojima level trolling here.
nick309  +   278d ago
Thing is.. Kojima really shows his games & he dosent wait that long.... Its way more than kojima trolling .

So its some sort game industry teaching online school?
videogames  +   279d ago

Sighs.
TheOwnmaster  +   279d ago
Jesus fucking Christ valve Are they picking random game ideas out of hats over there?
Valve's new project announced...
And it's nothing at all.
DeadlyFire  +   278d ago
misleading title.

This isn't a project. This is a lets train your kids to work at valve too program for the people that work at Valve.
MrTrololo  +   279d ago
Face it guys they will never released their game with a number 3 considering most of their game end up with a number 2. Valve just produce a new IP we barely care and left their old franchise to dust
CrossingEden  +   279d ago
This is sweet for animation majors like me.
dcj0524  +   279d ago

Its been eights years, forget about it, its not going to happen. They are making plenty of money off steam. There is no need for them to develop anymore games.
josephayal  +   278d ago
Pipe MEH!
Buljo  +   278d ago
I'm starting to believe Half Life 3 will never be.
Krosis  +   278d ago
Yay....*sigh*
spike  +   278d ago
I have a porno called Pipeline.
Rivitur  +   278d ago
It isn't the one featuring Mario and Luigi is it?
Foxgod  +   278d ago
Sounds like another one of those source engine puzzle games.
Modestmex  +   278d ago
Holy shit i just farted 3 times half-life 3 confirmed!
MoveTheGlow  +   278d ago
Valve started with Gabe, who spent years as an OS developer, and they're starting to really function like an OS company with Steam.

Their business model doesn't seem like it depends on games revenue at all. They even use some of their most beloved games, Half-Life 2, Portal, and Portal 2, as freebies so often to coax you into loving Steam (and it works, it's how I got there!).

If and when they make Half-Life 3, it won't be Valve's biggest hitters coding or making art for that game. It'll be a partnership with another development firm, with a couple of Valve heads in on the deal.

If.

Ahh, I get what they are doing. Cheap labor from minors, you rock valve!
Blacklash93  +   278d ago
I wonder if it will involve that new F-Stop mechanic they've mentioned. They said they thought it was as innovative as the portal gun, to the point they were going to make Portal 2 without portals and F-Stop instead.
