For a long time, we have been waiting for a sequel for one of Valve?s most successful video games, Half-Life. But it seems that Gabe Newell is not very fond of the number ?3? and kept the fans guessing if the series is done.
Valve created several awesome games, but most of them never really made a third mark. For starters, we have Half-Life 2, Portal 2, Left4Dead 2. Fans were wondering if there will be an addition to those games and since they have not heard any, they started making ?meme?s? about it.
But somebody broke protocols, and slip a bit of information that might confirm if Half-Life 3 is actually coming. ?Minh ?Gooseman? Le, the one who created the classic ?Counter-Strike? that was released as a Half-Life modification back in 2000, made a revelation during the podcast ?goRGNtv?. According to Le, the development of Half-Life 3 and Left 4 Dead 3 is on-going and would possibly be released.
“I don’t think I can talk about that, to be honest, but I think it’s kind of public knowledge, that people know that it is being worked on??Le stated.
Though he does not know when, he believed that people already knew. But they did not.
“I guess I could say that I did see something that looked kinda like in the Half-Life universe. And I mean it wouldn’t surprise anyone if I said they’re doing it, they’re working on it, yeah. So to go on a limb I’d say I did see some concept art for Half-Life 3.”
Le does not work for Valve as of today and fans do not know for sure if he?s in trouble by revealing something which is not meant to be revealed. But he confessed with the upcoming development of ?Left4Dead 3?.
“I saw it, it looks great. I was really excited when I saw that, I was like ‘wow, this looks great’.” He added
These revelations that Le stated gave clues that Half-Life 3 or Left4Dead 3 might be out in the cards this 2014. Valve has always been famously quiet with their upcoming releases. According to Gabe Newell, he would rather focus on the multiplayer aspects of the games and improve gameplay than continue piling up installments for the Half-Life franchise.
