Half-Life 3 Won't Be At E3 2014
... because it will have been released by then!
Funny thing is, the only thing Valve said about this fake comment is...well...that it's fake.
That's it. They didn't say Half-Life 3 won't be at E32014. They didn't say it will be at E32014. They quite literally said nothing except that Mr. Guthrie didn't write that tweet.
Yet, as is par for the course, everyone is jumping to conclusions, making shit up, and speculating on false information.
I mean, seriously, it's bad enough when we get misleading news posts on the matter. We don't need the community stirring itself up with misinformation.
But anyway...as hopeless as I'm convinced it is I'll be wishing along with you that we see it before
has everyone decided to ignore the statements concerning half life 3 that have actually come from valve? those ones that say they arent making it because they dont want to right now?
just let them make it on their own terms. i cant see valve bending to the whims of the masses and just doing it because of fanboy rage at this point, but if they were to do so, the game might suck.
better for the half life saga to not end at all than for it to end badly.

At this point, I don't even care much anymore. Why are the fans creating all this hype is Valve hasn't said nary a word confirming that it's being worked on?
Except that...they have confirmed it. Several times in fact.
Some handy links.
All of those from a quick and dirty Google search.
Honestly, I really don't get how there is any confusion on the matter anymore. I really don't. It's not like Half-Life 3 is simply the outcome of some fevered dream of Half-Life fans. It's not some wishful desire for a continuation of the series. It's a real thing. An active project.
Yes, Half-Life 3 is very likely still in development and has been, in one form or another, since Episode 2. No, there is no longer an Episode 3.
The only question that needs asking is, "When will it be finished?"
The answer of which is, "Who the hell knows?" I'm not even sure Valve knows at this point. Any other claims at this point are simply the community trolling the community. (which, of course, hasn't stopped the community from placing blame squarely on Valve's shoulders for said trolling)
I dont get why people care so much.
Yeah, I know, right? It's almost like people have differing opinions to yours.
How dare they, those dirty Plebeians!
