A Portal 3 release date has been reported to be in talks after Valve founder Gabe Newell talked about the company’s future releases that has been getting fans at the edge of their seats, who wants to see more of the future releases.
Rumors went around before the E3 2014 event earlier this year, that Valve would announce a lineup of new games including Portal 3, Left 4 Dead, a new Team Fortress and the new Half Life 3 but as days went by and the event passed by, nothing happened, no talks or any signs about the game surfaced.
Just as Newell said in the same interview, the founder of Valve explained why the game wouldn’t be happening soon and it may be because of Steam.
“So, if somebody becomes the group manager of X, they’re going to really resist it when X is not what you want to do in the next round of games.
You don’t want them to sort of burrow into that – you want them to recognize that being really good at Half-Life level design is not as nearly as valued as thinking of how to design social multi-player experiences.
You’ve had them feel like they have an organization and title tied up to something when the key is to just continue to follow where the customers are leading.” He however, recognizes the attention these games has been garnering and says that he still supports what his fans would tell them.
“We definitely in a sense have an army of customers who are always helping us stay honest…,” he concluded.
“We’ve essentially crowd-sourced supervision of a lot of these decisions to our customers and it works way better than almost any other system we could design.
They’re rabid, they’re passionate, and there are a lot of them.” For more news about the Portal 3 release date and other upcoming games expected from Valve, keep it locked in here at Kpopstarz.com.
