I like this quote from one user in the comments: "He made own "Half Life 3" on EPIC unreal game engine? This is best trolling ever" Valve you are pathetic, if this gets completed and a proper release I lost all faith in you.

Honestly if expectations weren't so high after Half-Life 2, we probably would have had a third entry by now. A problem with universal acclaim is trying to replicate it a second time. If Half-Life 3 came out now, the hype would build as would expectations of it being 'the next big thing' as Half-Life 2 was, and failure to meet potentially unrealistic expectations would actually hurt Valve. For them it probably comes down to 'more likely to fail than succeed, so why bother?'. It also doesn't help that they've sat on it for as long as they have with most, if not all the people who worked on the previous entries have since left the company.

It's been so long, I doubt most people would expect much from a new Valve game these days tbh

Yeah, because staying average or slightly above or below is such a great way to do things.

A few years back, Gabe Newell mentioned that he wants to develop new games and hardware at the same time in the same way Nintendo does. In a couple of weeks they are revealing a new VR headset, Knuckles controllers and they are also rumored to be working on 3 games to go along with them.

I agree with this completely. The game came from a time when mechanics were a bit simpler in first person shooters. The game has a great story and setting but players expect too much nowadays. The integrity of the story would probably be torn to shreds by journalists that were 6 when part 2 came out. It would be ridiculed for not staying true to half-life roots by older journalists that can't relive the magic. There would be a focus on which "version" is better. It seems like they're damned if they don't and damned if they do.

I also believe that if it came out now, it would never live up to the hype. If it was released many years ago I would be certain it would be epic. But lets see what comes out of this ^_^

This is awesome and sad at the same time. The passion is great, but the deaf publishers are sad.
