Great idea, hopefully they will be more forthcoming with information.

That would be a valid point IF that was what this is about. We've known for a long time they're working on it. We just want to know when, or at least some sort of time-frame.

I'll have to disagree with that, I think that IF valve decides to release or announce HL3 then there will be a giant hype for it that will make alot of people jump the bandwagon. I mean take a look at skyrim, I know alot of people thats never played the first few Elder Scrolls games and jumped right into Skyrim, just beacuse of the hype. Especially it being on steam I think HL3 will be a great success.

It's quite comical.

Nice attitude and it simple people showing there support and interest and this crap you spew out for a reply congratulations you didn't take time to read what this is about.

Wow, you proved your superiority there buddy. It's a bunch of little kids begging for candy. It will release when it releases, get over it, pining away for a game with this kind of history just makes you look silly. It's just another tactic in the immature PC gamer arsenal.

Thing was with Skyrim it had nothing to do with the previous elder scrolls story wise, while HalfLife is heavily story and character focused. Its more like Assassins Creed with people who are interested in the franchise looking forward to what is going to happen to characters and the overall plot. Not many people are going to hop on in the middle of it.

When the new consoles drop we will surely hear about Half-Life 3 - as we all know now gaming completely revolves around consoles unless it is an MMO or F2P game.

Well, devs can only really develop console games when they get the consoles to test on. IDK about the PS4, but 360 chip production is just starting. We'll be lucky if we see Xbox 720s in 2013.

You really didn't read the message, did you ? It's a carefully worded message, and just a way to try to figure out what Valve's plans are. Everybody thinks they know that Valve is working on it, but what is keeping everybody intrigued is the fact they haven't said anything in years. Not so much of a problem when Half-Life was around because the story wasn't left there, waiting to continue, and Valve hadn't specifically said there would be a sequel, including a schedule, like they did for the episodes.

The message is not begging for anything, it's asking for better communication in a polite way. This is a game, don't you understand ? I'm talking about the message, not the game itself. Valve plays a game of mystery, gamers have every right to play the game of asking for more information. Valve is made up of intelligent people, they will figure out the best way to handle this part of the game. Why on earth shouldn't gamers write such a message to Valve ? This is not only about a game, it's also about business. If Valve wants good business in addition to making good games, they must know how to do both.
