I was just browsing around on some sites and just stumbled upon this article that talks about gabe and Riccochet 2, possibly codename for half-life 3. heres an excerpt

"In terms of Ricochet 2, we always have this problem that when we talk about things too far in advance," Newell said. "We end up changing our minds as we're going through and developing stuff, so as we're thinking through the giant story arc which is Ricochet 2, you might get to a point where you're saying something is surprising us in a positive way and something is surprising us in a negative way, and, you know, we'd like to be super transparent about the future of Ricochet 2."

I don't get the reasoning behind how it is a code name :/

The article basically said, "Hey this is a codename for Half Life 3 because it is." Really frustrating.

The article itself sounded slightly..off too for some reason. The writing I mean, not the content, though the content is fairly vaporous.

If Ricochet 2 is just a codename for Half-Life 3 then boo on you Gabe Newell!  
Also, I'm sorry I booed you, please don't stab me. 
Then again, I could probably outrun you, so boo on you, again! .. Unles we're going down a hill, then I am sorry, again.  Please don't pull a Katamari Damacy move on me, Gabe :(

Delayed because of story arc?

Half-Life 3: Gordan Freeman defeats combine using newly acquired portal gun! The story writes itself, so it obviously can't be about HL-3.

It's been more than a decade, but we can all enjoy our hobby once more.

A little context: The interviewer was clearly referencing HL3 but was jokingly referring to it as Ricochet 2 and Gaben ran with it. Sorry to crush anyone's hopes and dreams. I would recommend listening to the whole interview this was taken from, as it's pretty damn informative and entertaining. There's quite a bit of insight into how Valve operates and there's Gabe's amusing attempts to not shit all over Origin.
