Well, they still haven't quite finished writing the story yet...I believe they are still editing page 4. Next year they will start writing page 5 of the story.NinjaSocks333 said:"I can't confirm all too much since the development is still in early stages". How can you be in early stages for 5 years?
So Valve is trolling people because someone completely unaffiliated with them created a fake tweet on a fake site?Orks da best said:also valve being trolls, nothing new here...
I've never understood why people ***** about it being "too long" since the last one, and as such claim they no longer care.babinro said:It would make my day if nobody bought HL3 when it was released. It would be our way of telling Valve that we were interested in the franchise for over a decade but since they stopped caring about it so have we.
I'm pretty sure it's one of the latter two. See below.CardinalPiggles said:It's clear they either don't feel like developing it, are spread too thin to significantly progress with it, or are simply waiting for something revolutionary to make it amazing, or are just keeping it under wraps as is quite common in the gaming industry I might add.
I posted this above, but it seems most people still don't know about the info I linked. So here it is again:gunningyoudown said:You know... I really am starting to not care.. Your ether going to put it out or not. Valve needs to quit tugging the chain and ether confirm it or tell the fans that they are insane.
In fact, the only thing we have to go one, as far as statements actually made by Valve on the topic of Half-Life 3, is this: http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2012/04/23/gabe-on-ricochet-2-delay-but-he-doesnt-mean-ricochet/
Going by Mr. Newells statements, it appears as though the game has been in active development since the release of Episode 2. Whether that's still the case since the interview is unknown.
Now, as to when or if we'll actually see the final product, who knows? Could be six months off. Could be six years off.
If you like the series, be patient. It'll show up. Presumably. Hopefully.
If you don't like the series, then why waste your time commenting on a news item about it?
In the mean time, I'm going back to playing something else. I'm more than happy to play any one of the plethora of game titles out there while patiently waiting for a conclusion to the Half-Life series.

Regardless of the amusement value of some good old trolling; the "Half-life 3 confirmed" meme in and of itself is an advertiser's wet dream. They're fueling hype by doing nothing more than not outright denying that they might, in a hypothetical future, actually make the game.gunningyoudown said:You know...

Because they've been too busy making hats for TF2 and getting fat off of that money they made with Left4Cash-in 2.NinjaSocks333 said:"I can't confirm all too much since the development is still in early stages". How can you be in early stages for 5 years?
