They won’t actually and here’s why.
With E3 2014 right around the corner – and depending on where you around the world, mere hours away – the obvious question on everyone’s lips is whether Valve Software will surprise us this year. More specifically, will they announce Half Life 3, which has been hyped since the better part of this decade?
Well, here are our thoughts on the matter: NO.
Despite Counter-strike creator Minh “Gooseman” Le witnessing concept art for what he thought would be Half Life 3, the fact remains that we won’t be seeing the game this year. It isn’t above Valve to surprise us out of nowhere, as it did with Half Life 2 at E3 2003 but let’s be real. Valve isn’t going to make such a bombshell announcement and take away focus from everything else it has going on, including the Steam Controller, SteamOS and Steam Machines, not to mention the recently revealed VR headset.
There are also reports that Source 2 engine is nearing completion and a number of games subtitled ‘3’ might actually be making their way across on the newly updated engine. If Valve were to announce Half Life 3, they won’t just do it on the verge of the engine’s completion.
What are your thoughts? Will we see Half Life 3 at E3? Let us know in the comments.
