Valve and IGN tease Half-Life fans

Recent Twitter updates have left fans speculating that Valve is preparing their community for a massive announcement and posts by IGN that seem to tie in to this are possibly hinting at an update on the Half-Life series. (Half Life 3, IGN, PC, Valve)

Update More signs are pointing in the direction of HL3, a forum post brought to light that the half-life3.com website has seen an update on April 29 ( http://network-tools.com/de... check under "Update Date")

Hard to tell

"OMG they're totally announcing Half-Life 3 for real this time" article #179564564633

Never stop believing!

It has to come eventually, and the longer the wait, the bigger the hype. It's one game in which people won't lose interest (unlike Duke Nukem).

@inveni0 - People didn't lose interest in Duke Nukem Forever... At least, not real fans of the series. Honestly though, Duke had been away much longer than Half Life lol.

I'm thinking it'll be a PS3 timed exclusive....before the shower of disagrees, lol Valve did say that Sony should be rewarded for opening up there Network. Maybe I'm wishing on a star, or maybe I'm just so sane I just blew your mind. ;).

Hey Margaret! FIST PUMP! -RS

You think? 'Cause DNF is on sale at Best Buy for $3.............so...

I know, I know, that's after the fact. But I was a huge fan of the Duke games, but the more it was delayed, and the more crappy screenshots we saw, I realized that no one was going to do it the justice and respect it deserved. So I lost interest, like any conscious buyer would.

this time will it be real? lol Half Life 3 if announched will literally steal E3...also maybe if more of GTA5 is shown too.

I thought Valve was working on Ricochet 2?

probably not HL3. IGN probably woke up and smelt coffee... unless its some elaborate.

I think its a trailer for meet the pyro... but still, never stop believing

One day... one day

I bet its nothing HL3 related
unknownhero1123  +   1186d ago
yup, it's ign being dumb trolls as usual which will make that tweet ironic since half life fans will burn down the ign offices.
user5467007  +   1186d ago
So theres two ways this could play out

1) They are trolling us, this is a direct quote from the G-Man but they are just using it to hype people up, get people interested and then announce the Meet the Pryo video.

...but then again did IGN make such a big fuss over the other "Meet the..." videos ?

2) This is the real deal and they are going to tease us right up to E3 or up to another ARG which will then lead up to E3.

..."bu bu but the email said they wern't annoucing HL3 at E3". The email...is fake.

Ace_Man_6  +   1186d ago
But you don't want to "drool yourself to death" because then you wouldn't be able to play the new Half-Life lol
Red_eyes_Gremlin  +   1186d ago
So true : )

Disappointment and sadness will only come from this. :'(

I can see the headlines:
Half Life HD collection......
NukaCola  +   1186d ago
Orange Box rereleased a bit more polished?
Moncole  +   1186d ago
Why would you need that? YOu can download mods.

If you play Half-Life on consoles you are playing it wrong because all the mods it has.

Watch the new video for Portal 2's map creator that is coming out may 8th. At 1:15-1:25 mark you can see on one of the lil guys computer screen what looks like the Pyro shooting flames. Also another lil guy is watching porn, his monitor is blurred out.
jeenyus  +   1186d ago
Oh god, not again.

*still hopes it's HL3
jbiz320  +   1186d ago
Some of the top Playstation or Xbox based developers would have 2 AAA games the time its taken for this supposed sequel. This is starting to border on disrespect to Valves fans of the series..
Ducky  +   1186d ago
It's not like Valve has stopped making games at all.
They just haven't made a HalfLife game.
paybackprahl  +   1186d ago
Could be the start of something exciting, but it's all speculation for now.
ninjahunter  +   1186d ago
._. Im watching you gaben. You cant hide behind that beard forever.
Greyslash  +   1186d ago
I assume E3 will go something like this.
"Hello and welcome the the E3 Valve press conference, I am very pleased to announce one of our most successful franchises getting a third installment in its series this year, well, I can't keep the fans waiting...here it is...LEFT 4 DEAD 3!" And then Valve was never heard from again.
LightofDarkness  +   1185d ago
It's true. If they troll gamers again, this'll be the last time. These teases are subject to diminishing returns, because as time goes on, people lose interest in the series. Which means if they announce it any later than this year, I fear people will be pretty lukewarm about it.

Half-Life 3 Steam and Steam Box exclusive.
Calling it!
CaptainSheep  +   1185d ago
Each time I see an article like this, my heart breaks because I always think it's not Half-Life 3.. T___T
But I shall still believe!
