[playeraffinity] Half Life 3, Portal 3, or Left 4 Dead 3: Gabe Newell’s Cryptic Message

Now that Duke Nukem Forever has been released (remember that?), and with Max Payne 3’s launch nearing, it would seem that Half-Life 3 is due for a release…right? A group of users from 4chan sent a (very NSFW) email to the face of Valve, Gabe Newell; as Newell always says in his games’ developer commentary, while he reads every email that is sent to him, he doesn’t respond to all of them. Yet, the Gaben responded to this email with: “I don’t suppose it would ease your wrath if I told you we’re announcing all your favorite things at E3 2012?”

I always do wonder if the reason it takes them a even longer time is because they're trying to show case a "new" engine so to say. I realize they will continue upgrading the Source/Orange Box engine for HL3, but they're making a leap in graphics like they have always done with the rest of the Half Life series.

Left 4 Dead 3 is most likely it. Throw a couple of new maps, 1 or 2 new infected, and a loose storyline for good measure. You could crank that out in 4-6 months easily considering all the assets they already have.

There's no way they have time to work on HL3 while juggling both CS:GO and DOTA 2. The project itself is just too massive.

They actually have more people working on Team Fortress 2 the last time I visited (In January). DOTA 2 team was really small, around 5 people when I was there.

Would love to see some gameplay for Ricochet 2; the original was pretty new and creative. I just hope it isn't a big announcement for Dota 2 and its release.

It could be Half Life 3 because of the whole Ricochet 2 euphemism that Gaben said.

Too soon for Portal 3, too late for Half Life 3... L4D3 2012!

Unless HL3 isn't as big of a project as expected. Initially they were going to close it off at Episode 3. That would be a kick to the nuts, but hey, remember what industry we are dealing with.

Half-Life 3 was all but confirmed to have been in development for the last 4 years by Newell so I would guess that is actually what he's talking about. He hinted that at one point they just completely restarted the project. Not unlike both half-life 1 and 2s development. It's definitely coming either way. People that think Valve are not working on Half-Life 3 I think are crazy.

I hope it's Half-Life 3 at any rate. The ending of Episode 2 was so brilliant. The only cliff hanger I've ever really enjoyed. I can't wait to get back into that series.

lol L4D:3 So another rehash of L4D? L4D was fun, but L4D2 wasn't any better. Maybe I'm just still butthurt paying full price for DLC.

I want The Crossing damn it.
