One of the most anticipated video game titles in recent history is the “Half Life 3” release date that has been getting fans crazy and angry at the same time.
In a report by IGN , game creator Gabe Newell discusses the possible future of the game, in which he believed to be a “bad choice” after going back to what they did for the sequel of the title.
“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.” This statement lead some fans losing hope for a “Half Life 3” release date from happening.
However, in a Kotaku report, hopes from fans once again emerged after Valve reportedly experimented on “Half Life” weapons on a virtual reality showcase at the recently held Game Developers Conference.
Valve however revealed that it was only for show and that they are not revealing any “Half Life 3” release date.
“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.”
