Valve Software’s bug tracking site now includes a group for Half-Life 3 and a second “Half-Life 3 Core” group, basically confirming that the game is in development. You don’t look for bugs in a game you aren’t developing, after all.
You know I'm really getting the feeling that with Half Life 3 any bits of news, real or fake come in bursts. You hear nothing for ages and then you get 2-3 articles in one day. I think it might be coming soon, they have nothing else planned or announced in the games department so I think this is the next release. They will announce it with Source 2 and this, Source 2 and the Steam Machine stuff will all be linked together for marketing.
Bug-testing, maybe that means there at least in some form of an internal beta phase? I might be wrong but I don't think they do much bug testing in the alpha stage.
JIRAs are normally opened since the very beginning of development.
Um keep in mind many titles are announced and have gamplay trailers when they are in PRE-alpha so this is likely nowhere near beta
Half Life 3 is really just the codename for Ricochet 2. LMAO. *I wonder how many people will get this joke
Are you referring to that video "gabe newell at e3"? I love that video haha! Unless youre actually referring to the game ricochet.
dont know if i can take this seriously :/ http://fc02.deviantart.net/...
1 + 2 = 3. Half-Life 3 confirmed.
IT IS GABENING GUYS
It's not gabening.... http://static4.fjcdn.com/th... Or... maybe it is :) http://stream1.gifsoup.com/...
In the months preceding HL3s release, I will assume a complete hiatus from internet forums, news sites, gaming sites, and social media sites. I will NOT be spoiled one iota for HL3
I will purposely find all the leaked footage I can, and post it. And you won't be able to resist the temptation. You'll click it. You know you will :D
Good idea. New outlets don't care about spoiling shit for people, they just want to churn out news and get paid. I reckon we should all just pretty much ignore them, don't give them the time of day. We know HL3 will be good no matter what, so to hell with keeping up to date with the inundation of media that'll precede it's release, it only ever serves to spoil and make the final experience lack.
I read a really long discussing on the IGN Wiki page for GTA5 the other day about how people where getting annoyed with Easter Eggs in GTA5 being spoiled on the front page. The attitude of the moderator was horrific. He was a massive penis.
I haven't even played any of the Half-Life games... and i'm still excited for Half-Life 3 (x
Neither have I. All I know is that this game is hyped to hell. Makes me want to play it.
You should play them.. amazing games. Can't believe you haven't played them yet!
Half-Life 2 is an amazing experience. As for the original . . . while it is still fun, I don't really feel it holds up all that well. Funnily enough, the two expansions for it that were developed by Gearbox, at least in my opinion, fair much better in this regard.
I played around half way though 2 and just wasn't feeling it so I never finished it. Will play 3 though.
the game was great for being old and it was ended on a cliff hanger....so we need the next game
Half life 2 is one of the greatest games ever made even by todays stanards. Only game I ever tricked out a pc for and it was well worth it.
Just watch the whole playthrough on youtube for the story.
O.M.G Please don't play with y emotions, Valve!
Sorry, Valve: you can't hide that one. The internet never forgets, especially when Half-Life 3 is involved.
Please be true!! I've been waiting 6 years for this!
It is still not "Confirmed" until Valve officially announce it.
Sad but true.
HL3 confirmed....... yet again........... maybe.
Why is this tagged with consoles? This is Valve's trump card, there's a good chance it'll be Steambox exclusive. At least, that's what I'd do. Steambox exclusive launch title and they'll have all the money in the world.
They can do that if they want to find themselves with a lynchmob at the door. By the way, they can't do it "steambox" exclusive, considering that it's an open OS.
Just because it's an open OS doesn't mean it can't have proprietary software. Not saying that they would do it, because it would be stupid and probably lose sales, but I'm sure they could if they wanted to.
I don't see how anything is going to be 'exclusive' on a Steam Machine considering the OS is free and can be installed on any machine you like, as is the nature of Linux based operating systems. Plus, it would be Valve pissing all over the current Steam community who have supported them so well.
"Why is it this tagged with consoles?" Because the next gen consoles are so similar to PCs in design that I think it eliminates the hurdle that Valve (or more directly Gabe) had with the ps3 and 360.
What Half Life game wasn't for consoles?
Half life 3 confirmed but the government is closed.
Is this gonna be the launch title for SteamOS me thinks?
The cake is a lie!
omg it's really happening right....
If I get HL3 before FFXV, I´ll bust my ass laughing XD. Now seriously.....Valve, Square, please release this games at least in 2015 :(!!!!!!!!
So Valve files for a HL3 trademark when the government is shut down. Thanks for Trolling us YET AGAIN Valve.
That's why the trademark was filed in Europe lol.
Yea ok! Ill believe it when/if they announce it...
I hope it's nothing like 2. And every bit like 1.
I hope it's like 3.
HALF LIFE 3 CONFIRMED!
Could it be? I can only hope.
I believe the game will be a disappointment. I am NOT saying it will be bad, but there is no way the game can match the hype that Half Life fans have stirred up waiting for this long anticipated game. I just want to finish the story. The end of episode 2 when...okay, I'll stop here.
If this isn't real I'm going to slit someone's throat.
This game will be worthy of a new graphics card at least, for sure. Source 2 can't come soon enough.
6 to midnight
...IT HAS BEGUN...
OMG wait.... bug+valve=HALF LIFE 2 confirmed!
What's so great about Half Life? I've never played it, but I have watched gameplay. Honest question.
Nobody can answer you that you need to experience it for yourself from the 1st one ofc then 2nd and the 2 episodes too and you'll see the ****** ** *** ********.
God i hope it's true, the end of HL2 episode 2 has to be the longest freaking cliffhanger in history
Valve finally learned how to count to three?
Why is Half-Life praised so much? I found the games pretty average
Huh? What? Did I... Did I.. Just read Half Life 3 confirmed? Oh sweet baby, yeah finally!
