I know since hl ep 2 that they pushed 3 to next gen consoles. Valve wants a powerful game without compromises.

I'm sure we might get some ports on current gen hardware if they are relevant when it comes out. If rumors are true they'll be using a new source engine. The original was very scale able and i'd think they'd continue that with source 2.

Can´t wait Left 4 Dead 3. L4D2 is my favorite CO-OP Versus Zombie game of all time :)

Also, can´t wait Half Life 3, dramatic ending HL2 EP2

Why not just make it for pc then?

Why would they reveal the names of the developer's names... Now these guys will get harrased untill the game releases ,_,

Abriael1536d ago

Which is why the emails (that were also on the leaked site) have been omitted. The names can be found on the credits of most valve games.

Plyzz1536d ago

O I see, thanks :) But I'd say they still shouldn't give up names like these.. Can't be major detective work to locate them on the internet.

I don't see any contact information. Care to point out where it is?

And you may be a very peculiar Q&A developer (if you're ever been one), considering how much developers are normally upset when their names are not included in the *publicly available* credits of a game.

edit: nice ninja edit :D

Axonometri1536d ago (Edited 1536d ago )

Calm yourself. Credits are a completely different issue. I never accused you of anything. Having your "name" in credits is obviously something every developer wants. Having your name and contact info available online during or post development is not something most would want. You disagree with that?

I could care less what your opinion of my status in the industry. I did, however, state I had been on that side... which usually depicts a former status.

Same for you Nasim_
The site allows a user to edit a post. If that is a problem for you, take it up with the host. I post an opinion and get attacked. That makes your post more valid than mine I guess.

I am moving on...

Abriael1536d ago (Edited 1536d ago )

@Axonometri: the name is not a problem, as you can find their names on the credits of multiple valve games.

You don't work in this industry if you don't want your name out there. It's that simple.

Contact info would be a problem, which is why they have been omitted by all sources that reported this info, so I'm not exactly sure what you're talking about.

Mind you, most of those names are out there in the open right on Valve Software's website.

So much for that.

This article is seriously dumb. Holy Dualshockers spam, everyone. It's like they only get traffic from N4G.

Someone's mad. But of course some people can only spew personal attacks without adding anything to the discussion.
