To be fair, what possible explanation for the G-Man could exist that wouldn't be torn to shreds by at least half of the fanbase? It's kind of like the ending to LOST, I LOVED the last episode and how it ended, but then I had been a fan of Jack since episode 1. The loud people in all types of media ALL hated it.
So what would satisfy the hordes looking for answers about the G-Man? Is he an auditor/agent for an intergalactic holding company? Is he a shape shifting alien of a species that is an enemy to the Combine? Is he using an arcade game to recruit pilots out of trailer parks to fight against Zur and the Khodan Armada?
And that's just ONE question. How do you have Gordon and Alyx take down an entire alien army that's had a decade to dig in on Earth? SO yeah, I would have to say that it seems likely that Valve has trouble holding on to it's writing staff long enough to finish trilogies. Left4Dead and TeamFortress only get a new game with a new Half Life release, but then they are multiplayer only. Portal really needs to be combined with Half Life for HL3, if they ever do either game.
As for Artifact, I don't play card games. I am totally on board with the game being OS neutral, and using Vulkan especially. Thing is, the number of people that actually know what they are doing with Vulkan is still pretty small, although I have a feeling that it's going to go up once Sony finally releases the specs for the PS5. Little games like this build up experience at any studio.

Maybe a team based Battle Royale? Like with half a dozen different teams per match?
