The amount of times there have been alleged leaks and screenshots regarding Half-Life 3 is absurd. This didn’t stop the folks over at the Gamescom 2016 convention from putting up an eye-grabbing poster.
At first glance, it may seem like a legit and true Half-Life 3 poster, since it’s hung up alongside the likes of Watch Dogs 2, Titanfall 2 and Sniper Ghost Warrior 3, which are officially announced games. However, if you look closely, it actually reads, Half-Life: 3, with the entire advert reading “Half-Life: 3 editors who played it back then.”
This is similar to the NeoGAF thread constructed a couple of years ago, with the deceiving title of first Half-Life, 3 screenshots, which included exactly what it said in the title, three random screenshots taken from the original Half-Life. This time, Valve itself is the one starting to see amusement in toying with their fans’ hearts when it comes to Half-Life 3. Will this game ever see the light?
