IGN Editorial: Why Half-Life 3 Isn't Coming Soon

IGN: "Are you waiting for Half-life: Episode 3? Or maybe you're thinking Valve's ditched the episodic format altogether (and you'd probably be right). Regardless, don't hold your breath for a sign of life from Gordon Freeman any time soon. We know it's not going to be at E3 2011, and there are two big reasons why Valve would continue to hold off showing the world what its been working on.

One, gameplay is king. Two, there's just no need to rush it."

The story is too old to be commented.

wow must be really slow over at IGN. I know it's E3 season and everyone is getting ready for that but this is kinda redundant.

We all know DotA2 has to be released first then HL2 ep3 will come out most likely early Q4 2012. Either way no rush cause 2012 has a ton of quality games.

Diablo 3
Bioshock Infinite
Guild Wars 2
Arma 3
Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm

HL2 ep3 - if they release just another 4 hours EP after 4 years,then fuck u Valve

u think they will? when their puzzle game offers good hours of gameplay?

I say forget about half life & let it come out when it's ready!Half life 1&2 are not easy to top!

I want them to take there sweet time and make it a master piece! In this generation ur luck they don't make it a console half life 3,4,5,6,7 rehash every year!

that kinda what drives the console industry!

But mostly it will be catering to the PC crownd as it is the continuing of the game that started & made steam a success!

I still doubt we'll see an Episode 3 at all. Whats the point of continuing on with HL:Episode 3 if they can move on to bigger and better tech for HL3?

If they have some free about L4D3 then?
