According to Forbes, Gabe Newell is now worth $5.5 billion, making him one of the 100 richest Americans.
Just imagine how much more he would be worth if he announced HL3....
And he won’t allow the development of Half-Life 3.
Greed...complete greed It's funny because I honestly feel they'd focus on online titles instead when really they are the few who could get away with doing a pure single player campaign and then giving us free DLC. I wish for Portal 2 would have done the Co-Op as free DLC because they apparently had to cut the script for the single player story.
Valve focuses on selling other companies games via steam, and their own lower budget titles like DOTA 2 and CS:GO. Valve is no longer a AAA developer. This is unfortunate for myself, as Half-Life is one of my favorite FPS series. Due to Valve's pessimism, a lack of dedication to fans,and a lack of genuine interest in concluding the series that built the company.
Gonna agree with Fox on the greed part. Valve have become extremely greedy to the point that 90% pf their store is grade A trash.
I don't think it's gonna happen. Valve is too happy with the Steam.
Or they are waiting for the perfect time. Who knows, I believe its coming some day. Maybe 10-50 years but someday and will be glorious.
@nowizki2004 Don't get your hope up.
Lord Gaben thrives
Harvard dropouts worth billions. Meanwhile graduates...
...are fighting for gender pronouns and safe spaces.
Rolling in the Benjamins
At this point forget Half-life 3 when are we going to get any new games from Valve?
Holy crap, gabes worth more than trump
So upsetting that PC gaming is dying ..
I know...so sad. If only people would actually buy games on PC...maybe then Steam could earn Gabe a little money...
It/s already dead
Is he even alive anymore? Last time I saw him in an interview was 2013 lol. WTF, unfreeze him and give us Half Life 3, or Portal 3, or Team Fortress 3, or Counter-Strike 3, or L4D3, or DOTA 3, or ... Day of Defeat 2?? Seriously, thank you for continuing to update your games (TF2 just received a new Valve made map), but for the love of all things holy... Release a new game please.
What a joke
Alll that money and they still (Valve) can't develop a 4k version of Steam for us with 4k tv's. Losers...
I'm a huge fan of Half Life, 2 of the greatest games on the planet, and would love to see the third game. My biggest hope is for the third game to come out at some point in my lifetime (and those years are ticking away). But would anyone here really care about making another game if they had 5 billion in the bank? I think at this point, if it wasn't already clear, there won't be a Half Life 3. Someone bankrupt Gabe, somehow...
