Valve just filed for the registration of the trademark Half Life 3 in the European Union.
The US government shuts down, and Half-Life 3 gets pseudo-announced. Let's shut down the government more often!
Now waiting for the "on steambox only" news to follow it. That would suck.
They could pull that but somehow I doubt it. Possibly PC only on Steam but I doubt they make it exclusive to the Steam OS.
This after R* trademarks Agent lol.
Valve would be making a HUGE gamble if they did that but I highly doubt that's what they are doing
seriously, are people thinking that this is NOT going to be exclusive to their hardware??? i suppose we could say that kz is going to come out on the xbo as well
Valve are not like any other company though. I can see a window of exclusivity happening, but there's no way it would be exclusive to the "Steambox". It will be PC/Mac first, if anything, and then the consoles.
@digital I thought they usually release stuff at the same time on all platforms, at least thats what they've been doing with their recent games
5 million preorders right there. I've been waiting not so patiently for HL3. EDIT: Going to be on the orange box tonight.
That would be an ultimate betrayal.
That would suck indeed.
So in Valve Time we have another 6 years before we can actually play HL3.
I won't get excited until the game is out, the rumors regarding this have been circulating for simply too long.
going by what "she said" there is no such thing as too long. just a reminder.
Mean while Gabe is reading your comment and smerking with a troll face. I am convinced that Gabes get off on trolling people with HL.
So? Doesn't this just stop others doing it
Nope, you can't just sit on names. You have to use it in some way within a set amount of time, otherwise you lose the trademark. Otherwise people would just snag as many names as the could. So, at the very least this could lead to an announcement that the game even exists.
That's probably why this has surfaced it has been so long since the original trade mark Same with agent
half life 3 confirmed......LET THE PARTY BEGIN wowwwwwwwwwwwwooooooooooooooww wwwwwwwwww
The cynic in me makes me take this with more than just a pinch of salt
Same, but they did let their older trademarks for HL and HL2 die, so they don't seem to be too interested in "defensive moves".
HALF LIFE 3 CONFIRED FOR THE 8TH TIME!!!!!

If this is another case of Valve trolling their fans I will kidnap them all and make them live in a pit at the bottom of my garden on one tub of ice cream a week until they finish and release it for real. If they're actually planning to release it but not bringing it to consoles to help sales of this Steambox thing..... Oh momma, they're gonna wish this was just another case of them trolling their fans.
I doubt They'll do that... They'll find themselves with a lynchmob at the door.
Trademark has 9 letters, 9/3 = 3 HL3 CONFIRMED!!!
I lolled :D
Definite buy especially if I can get a copy for PS4.
I hate to say it (coming from a HF fan). I don't think it's because they are working on HF3. They did it so someone won't Troll and try to make money by reserving it from Valve.
Considering that they let all their other half life related trademarks die, they don't seem to be too concerned about that.
HALF LIFE 3 CONFIRMED (for real this time)
wait why would half life 3 be trademarked if we still haven't gotten half life 2 episode 3?
Why would we get that? Valve said themselves that their experiment with episodic gaming was a failure and they won't be doing it again years ago.
Great news! But that doesn't mean it will arrive early. It could take 3 or 4 years.
OMG the Universe is going to implode !!!
half life 3 confirmed with steam box
HL3 could have been built last year and no one would be the wiser. If they can keep the news of what they have been working on a secret (OS, Steam Machine and the controller), it would be simple to keep HL3 a secret. I bet it is released when the OS is released.
Dear Gabe. Your a big chap. Please bring Half-Life 3 to the PS4, cause I'm a fan ; )
They probably will. I don't see them releasing on anything less than all available platforms.
Half Life 3 Confirmed. HALF LIFE 3 CONFIRMED.
oh so it does look like valve can count to 3 hahaha
