Half-Life 3 is a game that fans have been waiting for. It has been years since the previous title came out and Valve has teased Half-Life 3 time and time again. Valve Index VR was released recently and while talking about the release of the product Gabe Newell himself teased the game, yet again.
He mentioned that milestones are not the end of something but the start. He talked about how Half-Life led to Half-Life 2 and how Source led to Source 2. Valve seems to have some plans in mind but Newell did not say much about games. He mostly focused on the new hardware that the company is working on and how it can be made better.
Newell did tease Half-Life 3 a bit. Like so many times in the past. Here is what he had to say:
Milestones aren’t really the end of anything, they’re really the beginning. So Half-Life led to Half-Life 2, Source led to Source 2, the experiments that we did with Team Fortress 2 were what enabled us to build Dota. Artifact is the reason we’re able to do Underlords. So, maybe someday the number 2 will lead us to that shiny integer glowing on a mountain someplace… we’ll just have to see.
The employees of the company did start laughing when he mentioned the magical number. So he could be joking. We do not know for sure what was going on In Newell’s head when he made this statement but you can check out his speech in the video below:
This is a big moment for Valve as it has released the new Index VR kit. The company is also getting back to developing games. Artifact did not do too well but things could be different for Underlords. This could lead to the release of Half-Life 3 but we do not know for sure.
Some argue that there is so much hype around the game that the expectations of the fans will not be satisfied no matter how great the game is. This could be the reason why Valve is not trying to make another Half-Life game. Then again, why does the company keep teasing it?
All this is very interesting indeed. Let us know what you think about Half-Life 3 and whether or not you think Valve still has what it takes to make a great game.
