Probably but it wouldn’t be explicitly called half life 3
It was confirmed after hla that valve was still doing something with half life but if there’s ever a third game it’s not gonna be what people think it’s gonna be
Wasn't the reason why Valve made HL: Alyx that they wrote themselves into a dead end in EP2 and could not come up with a proper storyline for a sequel? With Alyx imprisoned by the GMan and Gordon relieved of his "contract" with him
, at least now he has a personal motivation to go through the whole Borealis affair other than the usual "shoot the evil aliens and try to survive against all odds".
more like valve just stopped making games because their structure and work culture makes it impossible to put a team together, so they are just coasting on hats and being a monopoly virtual storefront
Their overreliance on partner revenue from Steam and being a literal circlejerk company played a pretty big part in it yes, but the "written into a dead end part" still holds true. Just look at the Episode Three draft and see how rough it is, as if it was not even Laidlaw's final draft for it (although HL2's story development was not exactly as ordered either).
I think you guys are just missing the reality that valve just isn’t a gaming company anymore
Don’t get me wrong they produce software and hardware that helps gamers but actually being a game development studio just isn’t really their thing anymore.
I wish they made games but I love them for making Linux gaming better.
>>21882>Probably but it wouldn’t be explicitly called half life 3
maybe the order of counting is
half life 1
half life 2
no,because the story was scrapped like 3 times,all the assets got leaked and dumped,and nobody who worked on the original two is interested in it or working at Valve,especially not the writers
ZOMBIE GHOSTS LEAVE THIS PLACE!
Quarter Life: Half-way to Destruction
The end of HL:A kind of confirms it
But I'm gonna laugh my ass off if they made an entire game to retcon the story into a more comfortable place for the writers and tease HL3, only to go another 10 years with no news about it until they make a Half Life: Kleiner or some shit to promote the Valve HoloDeck and tease HL3
