Oh, Half Life 3. Thou art a fickle mistress who never wishes to be seen. Ever since releasing the second game many moons ago, Valve Software (and boss Gabe Newell) have teased us and made us wait for the inevitable third game.
And then, finally, we get a confirmation trailer announcing that indeed, Half Life 3 will be out this Winter and Gordan Freeman will return, wielding both a Gravity Gun and Portal Gun.
Except, it won’t be. The above is just a fan-made trailer for the same. Granted, a very well made fan trailer, but still fan-made and thus not official.
You’d expect the internet to erupt with hatred – because seriously, why must anyone taunt us with even a shred of hope – but this is just par the course. Any hopes of Half Life 3 ever being released were especially dashed when news that Valve is currently working on Left 4 Dead 3 using the Source 2 engine emerged. Nevertheless, we can still dream, even if the desire is weak.
