“Half Life 3” release date was reportedly announced by online retailers at GDC 2015 earlier this month.
While some reports say Valve confirmed that “Half Life 3” is in development, Valve’s Chief Executive Officer, Gabe Newell, the co-founder of Newell, says speculation is premature for the upcoming Half-Life 3.
“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,” Newell said during recent Game Slide podcast.
“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.” Valve officially announced Source 2 on March 3 at GDC 2015.
Valve co-founder Gabe Newell said Half Life 3 is not in production.
But he didn’t deny that there will be a new Half Life 3.
Kotaku magazine got their dope from Valve programmer Jeep Barnett.
“We’ve said, ‘Let’s take some existing art and see how it fits,'” “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.” Barnett didn’t confirm or deny any news about the virtual reality game.
“We’re not saying, ‘no,'” Barnett told Kotaku.
“We don’t know what the right thing is [yet].
Our most precious resource is time, and we don’t have enough time for people to do everything.
Would we like to make all of our franchises in VR? Absolutely.
But we don’t have enough time or people.
So we have to figure out what’s the best fit, what plays to the strengths of VR.” Valve revealed that the engine will be free to developers.
Valve also revealed that the Steam OS machine as well as the Vive VR headset.
Gamers believe that Valve will start working on the game Half Life 4 to demonstrate how the new Steam OS will work.
