Granted, a lot of the background surrounding this seems a little sketchy, but I don't know what do you guys think?

How is Half-Life 3 confirmed if its being reported as a rumor?

#3 Posted by MiniPato (2818 posts) -

I think using the words "Rumor" and "confirmed" in the same headline is contradictory, especially without a question mark.

Anyways, I need more than "dude who worked on HL2 is working on something" to believe that this has anything to do with HL3.

dude my uncle works at Valve and he confirmed Half Life 3

Make me fucking work for your fucking news.. Now I gotta look up who John Gunthrie is..

Oh, he's a level designer. Just copy paste that in the description. Ack.

Cool, games. Whatever anymore.

I'd be disappointed if it were even possible to port HL3 to current-gen consoles. I want it to be like the HL2 reveal stuff, with a new engine that amazes everyone.

Confirmation of the rumour of confirmation pending.

this guy working at burger king said he has this bud who's fiance's brother works for nintendo, and he says that the dev team is moving away from half life 3 to concentrate on shadow of the colossus 2.

That they are working on Half-Life 3 is not shocking. I bet they have for a long time.

#10 Posted by Veektarius (5629 posts) -

@meptron: Fuck yeah, SotC is like ten times better than Half Life 2.

My Dad is Gordon Freeman and he said Half Life 3 will be a launch title for the Xbox One, also will require 1 hour check in. Also he said Alyx Vance is hot. Also he talks a lot.

I'd rather have Left 4 Dead 3.

You do know that Half-Life 2 was ported to the Xbox, right?

This game is going to suck if it ever comes out.

I wouldn't even dignify this as a rumor, pretty weak sauce.

#17 Posted by 49th (3295 posts) -

I'm Gabe Newell and can confirm this is true.

Since Half Life 4, they changed Gordon Freeman as the protagonist to this new kid called Liberty Johnson. Gordon is now just a side character sometimes helping Liberty.

So some Valve level designer has just lost his job by leaking the details of HL3 to some shitty blog no one has ever heard of, simultaneously making himself the least employable person in the entire gaming industry by publicly breaching an extremely strict NDA. The real headline here should be "man ruins his life in a fit of stupidity".

Or maybe, just maybe, that site made this shit up and it's fucking embarrassing that the gaming press are giving any credence to this bullshit whatsoever.

Well at least this thread was good for something. This is great.

@animasta: That settles it then. HL3 is officially rumored to be confirmed by a forum users uncle. Scoops done got scooped on this story!

So does mine! And he did too!

Wait...does that make us siblings?

#27 Posted by NegativeCero (3118 posts) -

I couldn't care less about Half Life 3 coming out at this point.

#28 Posted by RonGalaxy (4067 posts) -

I can confirm Half Life 3 is a rumor

#29 Posted by dudeglove (10796 posts) -

Why do you even care any more?

#30 Posted by DeckardsRevolver (30 posts) -
#31 Posted by Xymox (2272 posts) -

Episode 2 was released 6 years ago. I'd raise an eyebrow if some kind of prototype for Episode 3 and/or Half-Life 3 has not existed at some point during this time. But I'm not holding my breath for anything to be released.

I couldn't care less about Half Life 3 coming out at this point.

At this point, I'm not even sure I'd want it. I mean, what would that game even be? They certainly couldn't make something the same way they made Ep1 or Ep2 and stick with what is now quite dated shooter mechanics (the way I feel about it at least). But meh. Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised. Who knows.

#32 Posted by Dezztroy (1019 posts) -

Uh, Gabe already confirmed Half-Life 3 years ago.

#33 Edited by sometimesavowel (158 posts) -

I acknowledged it seemed sketchy, I said it "might have" been confirmed, but I thought it seemed interesting enough to open up for discussion. If it's true, then Valve is shitting bricks right now.

Although, there is something to a completely unheard of site making something like this up. And gosh-darnit, I might have fallen for it.

#34 Posted by CaptainObvious (2993 posts) -

Nintendo is developing it.

#35 Edited by LackingSaint (2104 posts) -

Is it really a surprise to some people that they're going to make the conclusion to the massively successful and critically acclaimed game series that made their studio what it is today? For reals, just wait for a damn trailer and then start getting excited about it coming back. Until then this is just the most roundabout boring conversation in the industry right now.

Well most of us were talking about the article's amateur click bait title more than your thread title. But still, c'mon man. Half Life 3 rumors are a dime a dozen.

#37 Posted by Cirdain (3572 posts) -

I confirm that this rumour is an confirmation that the rumoured rumour is confirmed to be a rumour.

FUCK

#38 Posted by JazGalaxy (1638 posts) -

I don't understand this genre of conversation.

Are there people out there who think Half Life 3 ISN'T going to happen?

The timing is absolutely up in the air, but certainly we can all agree that it is GOING to happen.

#39 Posted by Godlyawesomeguy (6421 posts) -

At some point, I stopped caring, whether I cared at all is a great question that I'm not equipped to answer. Half-Life 2 is an overrated game anyway.

#40 Posted by altairre (1473 posts) -

No.
