Default HL2 Episode 3 is not coming anytime soon

http://www.shacknews.com/laryn.x?story=55310

Bad news, Freeman fans. It looks like Half-Life 2: Episode Three won't arrive for a while--possibly 2010--going by an interview with Valve marketing VP Doug Lombardi.

"The next time you play as Gordon will be longer than the distance between Half-Life 2 to Episode One, and Episode One to Episode Two," Lombardi told Kikizo when asked about Episode Three.


Epic fail

Man that sucks. I just finished Episode 1 a few weeks ago. Been looking to start on Episode 2. God I hope I don't face a cliffhanger at the end of Episode 2 (note: I never bothered reading reviews on that one).

Damn it appears that DNF will be out before HL2 Episode 3 at this rate anyways. What's funny is that George Broussard said that DNF will come out before HL2 long ago, and technically that might be true since Episode 3 is part of the HL2 stuff.

Funny interview from 2006:

Quote:
Eurogamer: So why did you go for this episodic system?

Gabe Newell: The original Half-Life took us two years to develop. With a considerably larger team Half-Life 2 took us six years to develop, so we thought if we were going to continue our trend with Half-Life 3 we would basically ship after we had all retired.

We're trying to come up with a better way of getting more timely updates to our customers and also come up with something that didn't have the complexities. Projects increased logarithmically with how much we tried to do, so if you tried to put twice as much content or technology into a box it ends up taking you four times the amount of work, right, and so we're trying to figure out a better solution.

We left Half-Life 2 on a cliffhanger with the Citadel blowing up, Alyx is a couple of feet away from the explosion, so what's going to happen? People were pretty clear that they didn't want to have to wait as long as they had previously to find out what happened.

That's lousy.
Half-life2 was average, to me.

ep1 was better than average

I loved ep2 and still play it.

I would rather have the excellent game with ep2 graphics and tech sooner, than something that may or may not impress 2-4 years down the road.

Enough of this crap Newall..just deliver the game or go away.
