“Half Life 3” release date has been the talk of the town for a few years already and Valve until now has revealed any details about the possible third installation of the game.
According to an IGN report, Gabe Newell discussed the future of the game after he appeared in a Game Slice podcast, where he claimed that it would be a bad idea for a third title after what they saw in the “Portal” sequel.
“The only reason we’d go back and do like a super classic kind of product is if a whole bunch of people just internally at Valve said they wanted to do it and had a reasonable explanation for why [they did],” Newell said.
“But you know if you want to do another Half-Life game and you want to ignore everything we’ve learned in shipping Portal 2 and in shipping all the updates on the multiplayer side, that seems like a bad choice.” “So we’ll keep moving forward.
But that doesn’t necessarily always mean what people are worried that it might mean.” However, some fans speculated about Valve working on a “Half Life 3” release date after the developers were seen using “Half Life” weapons on the latest Game Developers Conference.
Kotaku reported that the company used portions of the game in a virtual reality showcase at the said event.
“We’ve said, ‘Let’s take some existing art and see how it fits,'” Valve programmer Jeep Barnett said.
“So yeah, we’ll grab some headcrabs, we’ll grab the machine guns from Half-Life, the rocket launcher-all those different fun things-and see how they play in VR.
But right now, it’s a tool for exploring the different kind of game designs we want to do.” There are no official words if a “Half Life 3” release date would push through but experts suggest that it wouldn’t happen any time soon.
