The announcement served as yet another reason to talk about Half-Life 3, once again questioning if it'll ever exist.
No people should just give up on Half Life 3.
Honestly what about Left 4 dead 3? That was a great franchise that had no reason to stop making more
The community in L4D2 sucks balls, especially in Versus and Scavange. One slight mistake, and your teammates will votekick you out.
go ahead, ask for it, but hl3, tired of any news about it....
I gave up...many years ago.
Half Life 3 has become more meme than actual possibility
Why would we give up? The story is not finished and the previous games were a massive success. It would be idiotic to abandon the franchise. They just want it to be perfect which I admire. Good things come to those who wait!
Sadly, Vavle has indicated many times that they have no interest in revisiting the series. It's better we move on that constantly holding our breaths every new convention that it might get announced. After 10 years and no word on EP3 or HL3 I'll reserve my excitement for if it's ever in my hands.
They don't want to do it.
They could never make anything that would live up to the hype and expectations. They know that and thus will never even try.
I have some hopes for at least a proper ending, but I am definitely more cynical over the matter.
Shouldn't give up? Many gamers have died already while waiting to play Half-Life 3.
I don't think Valve believes in games that don't have their own economies anymore. I pretty sure I saw an interview where Gabe referred to Portal 2 as a dissapointment for them.
I think most people don't care
Half-Life 3 is never gonna happen. It should've happened years ago, but it's too late. I'd take Left 4 Dead 3 though, as long as they make enough to make it play better than 2.
Why would it matter if the writers are all gone from Valve? The story could have been completed years ago. I still think its being made and a new engine..
nah.. im pretty much done hoping. and tbh i think its shameful how Valve has treated the fans of this series.
Half-Life 3 is not coming anytime soon, if at all
Had a fiancè one time that bailed on me. At the split I asked her if there was any chance of getting back together, and if so, how long. She replied, "maybe....in ten years." I refuse to be dragged and led on by an individual, and especially a company. Dedicated gamers/fans deserve better.
I loved the first Half Life, but lost interest in Half Life 2 after a few hours. Not too concerned about Half Life 3. Not sure why anyone else would care either, considering most of those involved in the last 2 games are likely long gone.
One word, cliffhanger.
@ Fist4achin FU. That's REAL TALK.....from the bottom of my heart, F U!! U ANTAGONISTIC Troll....I didn't read your stupid opinion piece, your a TROLL... It's a dead issue, the industry has survived w/o it. Only Trolls using REVERSE PSYCHOLOGY , an excuse to bring up something that has created over the years alot of controversy. But controversy sells, so let's create another ficticious reason to talk about something that WE KNOW(LEDGE) is going to piss someone off that the game was never made. Yeah , let's just remind everyone of something that @ 1time pissed them off, let's make up shit & give people FALSE HOPE so when there let down AGAIN, they experience all the negative feelings associated with there previous disappoinment. YOUR A ANTAGONIZER, nothing more. The ONLY TIME this vapor ware game comes up is when some antagonistic TROLL ASS_OLE brings it up, tryna be slick. smh. F U.
Wow dude. Sorry to make you feel that way. First i didnt write the opinion piece, i just submitted the article out of general interest. I am a fan of the series and like you, I am frustrated at Valve and their disregard for fans of HL. I still hold out because there have been many games that have been or are being resurrected through a reboot/remastered release. I.e. FF7 remake, Shenmue, Dragon Quest 7 and 8, Grim Fandango, LOZ Ocarina and majoras Mask,...
@Fist4achin 1st off, I want to say I don't believe or trust your intentions, lets get that straight, this is N4G.com, Land of the Trolls, & the Art of Trolling....and The Reality is its NEVER gonna happen.....only a Nutcase or a TROLL would say different @ this point..,..Most people have already realized this & moved on., hence there are only 25 comments on this article....if you've been N4G.com for awhile , you already know[ledge][ submitting these type of articles about this particular game, does not draw much interest, translation: Its a waste of time....so I don't believe YOU, in my book your lying, plain & simple, LIES. Its NEVER gonna happen, every conceivable outcome has been discussed & explored ALREADY over the years, your adding NOTHING NEW, only grudging up OLD WOUNDS. Move along TROLL. There's NOTHING to see here, no reason to discuss this game, its BEEN OVER for quite some time already.
I always had this theory that maybe it was because the HL2 source code got stolen and leaked online, so maybe this is their way of punishing us. And maybe that's why they left Episode 2 on a cliffhanger and never finished it. Edit: nah that's a stupid theory, if they had made HL3 it would have made them heaps of money and been critically acclaimed, so there must be other reasons it never got made. Maybe something to do with the huge success of Steam and all the money they've made from that.
nobody cares bout HL3 anymore. to many awesome games coming out, nobody is waitinf on this game any more. the jokes are funny anymore, everyone is too busy with everything else. Even if it did come out the way people review stuff these days itd probably get less than a 8/10 plus expectations. F this game, im done. Least I have quake back for nostolgia
@Subtenko exactly my man. well spoken
People really should give up. The thing has never been in development to begin with.
Why don't valve just help fund and let a bunch talented obsessed fan devs (like the black mesa guys) make HL3?
Some things are meant for some eras. Half Life had a great time being the best game in years. It was one of the best concepts who made Valve a million dollar industry today. If we get Half Life 3, sure it will have great graphics, open world scenes, weapons with triple alternate fire, combination of cool down supers, mech suits, power armor, mechas, flying fortresses, we will have a continuation of the Combine and the Benefactors and we will see a great war coming up. However we need to detach from those fantasies and stop wishing. If Valves wants it to happen, it will happen. If not then there are many, many, many games to get busy with. I stopped having any expectation of a third release. Besides the expectations are way too high. Surpassing Half Life 2 really requires incredible writing, innovation and an amazing upgrade. Steam is enough work for their busy schedule.
I want to believe
