Default Re: HL2 Episode 3 is not coming anytime soon

Maybe they're actually working on HL3 instead of ep3? I don't know.

Oh boy, you're in for a surprise mate...

Lombardi said the word episodic was wrong. The idea was to cut those 6 years they took to develop HL 2, to fewer bits of releases every 1.5-2 years. I don't mind waiting for ep 3 because I know the quality valve delivers. And I don't see a preview before L4D is shipped and sells good. Last thing they want is to pass the excitement to a future title.

I used to like Valve, but these days they just p*ss me off with their BS. That's an exaggeration as it's not really that important to me, but it makes my point. lol

I hope they reserve Half-Life 3 until the next BIG step in graphics/hardware (perhaps raytracing and true displacement maps, real-time global illumination, etc.)


The Orange Box is still doing great, no need for them to jump onto the next episode, but rather, they should take their time with it.

Default Re: HL2 Episode 3 is not coming anytime soon

I'd rather see them take a break from Half-Life after Episode 3. They do some amazing work, and I'd like to see what they can do with a new IP or even a different genre.

A Valve first person RPG based on an updated Source engine = teh win.
