Default Rumor: No New Half-Life in 2010

Man has it really been that long since Episode II. If this is true I'm disappointed. I thought we might see it this year, whatever it ends up being. I want Black Mesa bad.



Quote:
While Half-Life developer Valve has remained rather quiet as to when series star Gordon Freeman will continue his crowbar-wielding antics, a rumor currently making the rounds claims that it won't be this year.

"Loose Talk has learned that there won't be any game from the franchise in 2010, and what will finally come out is still unknown," reads the self-proclaimed "rumors and scuttlebutt" column in the February 2010 issue of Game Informer. "Will it be Half-Life 2: Episode Three? Or will it be a full-on Half-Life 3?"

The last Half-Life entry, Half-Life 2: Episode Two, arrived in October 2007. Since then, Valve has described Episode Three--the final entry in the Half-Life 2: Episode trilogy--as "a more ambitious project" and teased "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," later telling Shacknews "Freeman's not done...stay tuned for more."

Obviously. Even if it was announced for Q1 2010, we wouldn't see it until Q4 2012, and by that time the WORLD WOULD BE OVER!

I bet they will be bought by valve and it will be released as an addon to the next episode.

Much like CS, DOD, Portal and Garry's Mod.

That's what I'm thinking as well.

I actually take this as good news. Last I heard after EP3 Valve was discontinuing the HL franchise.

This article, though not very specific, implies that HL will continue beyond EP2... possibly.

This is good news, IMO.
