Well i think L4D will be out in 2008 and there has been no real information, trailers or screenshots of Episode 3 as of yet. So heres to hoping we get some info with L4D. And as for a Portal 2 being released with Episode 3 i could see it happening as Portal itself wasn't a long game so shouldn't take too long to create a second if its similar to the first.

The good news is that Huxley will be free off ijji but will probably include microtransactions for many items and weapons; the same thing they do for Gunz or Soldier Front.

Most probably it will come stand alone, or bundled with portal 2. THey may also need to produce a sku for people who hadnt played half life before.

I can see Ep.3 coming bundled with Portal 2. They haven't released much on either and it would sell well. Who knows, Valve has something in the works that we will know about hopefully by the end of the year.

I've been hearing rumours of a upgraded Counter-Strike to use better use of multi core processors.  That and Portal 2 would create the next orange box with rave reviews.

I'm guessing it will be packaged with everything from the Orange Box plus the Portal 2 content.

yeah im guessing it'll either be a stand alone product... almost a game by itself rather then another expansion, its the conclusion, it HAS to go out with a bang! portal 2 is the obvious choice i think.  But i can see another orange box type package a few months after release which will include the entire half life 2 series. Might get some "the making of" videos and extra developer video stuff and things like that.... perhaps some kind of suevenier of some kind, like a miniture freeman, or alex, something of that nature

Yes, it should be. Valve has ignored Counter-Strike for quite long enough.

The only reason The Orange Box exists is because all three of those new games happened to be finishing around the same time, I doubt that Ep 3 will be packaged in a new Orange Box type deal unless it happens to be finishing around the same time as a few other games.

with the amount of time the valve HL2 team takes with developing and shipping games, im sure if it ships with anything else at all it hasnt been announced yet. Maybe a new CS?
L4D is released nov this year so thats out of the picture.

lol I think Huxley and Duke Nukem Forever are in the same boat,I really don't think they'll ever happen. Valve apparently hasn't said shit about HL2-episode 3 yet though,and you know them and release dates not being very accurate,so i'd imagine they won't ever announced much and it'll just happen withing end of 08- summer -09 I would think.

Valve seems to really enjoy bundling things, so I'm sure they have something to throw in there.

Valve have always said they didn't count CS:S as a sequel, so one would think that they are making one.
But valve really have a boner about TF2, so I don't know if they would release 2 high status multiplayer games so soon of which both would take away from TF2 (L4D and supposed CS2 - assuming Ep3 bundle is out next year)

I have a feeling it will be standalone first, and then later bundled with other games.

Since Valve thinks you don't own enough copies of Half Life 2 already, they'll bundle it with Half-Life 2 as well as Counter Strike, because we all know you haven't gotten a copy of that yet. =P

Alot of love for CS in here. I never liked it much,but im really picky. I hope ep3 gives major closure. i want the next full game in the series to be a whole new animal. If anyone can do it valve can. (can anyone say portal gun and gravity gun gameplay AT THE SAME TIME)

Portal 2 and something multiplayer possibly Left 4 Dead.
I doubt Counter Strike 2 because they already have CS:S on the source engine.

Valve is smart, the game will come bundled with other games like portal 2 and whatnot. multiple smaller games > one huge game for the same price.

I think it'll probably be the longest episode and it will be standalone.

Probably is going to be stand alone, but something tells me that this time Valve is going to ship a longer game... maybe this, beign the showdown for half ife 3 (the half life episodes are half life 3), they wanted to make it big.
Of couse we will se a product with everything packed in it in the future.

Of course that Valve takes its time and for the quality we get in the final product I sometimes wish that the other companies were like Valve and Blizzard, not rushing unfinished products and developing good ideas. But sometimes I hate them for taking so long. For the moment we are looking forward for left4dead, and thats it, they will unveil something from here to the end of the year.

Agreed, I'm guessing it will either be something we don't see coming, or be standalone. Can't wait for it though!

On the PC it will be a standalone for sure. On the consoles, I don't know....

Oh yeah... HL2: Episode Three Forum, maybe? Because there is one.

Good Thing about Steam though is that whatever its packed with, If all you want is Ep 3 then you can just buy it alone.

Yeah it could be, I doubt it though. Maybe sometime after it's release it will be bundled in as a free bonus just like HL2 and Ep1 were in Orange Box

It'll be stand alone at first,because if you've followed valve since half life 2,you know its an amazing company, but they're release date times are far from ever accurate. I doubt they would purposely wait to release it until another Portal or something else was done. I'd imagine it'll be for download on steam stand alone sometime in 09.
