Extra Punctuation Will Half-Life 3 Outlive Public Interest Because of Development Time?

Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw:

How long is too long? In terms of development time, I mean. Admittedly, Valve have been very careful not to come out and say that they're developing Half-Life 3. I could imagine them being concerned about making any promises in case they throw the entire game out on a whim and start from scratch, as seems to be their pattern, most notably with Team Fortress 2. But maybe they should have thought of that before they ended Half-Life 2 Episode 2 with a cliffhanger, so that even without an official announcement they already had an obligation to finish the bloody story.
