Is Half-Life 3 Really Happening?
He also tactfully ducks the question by joking that the “number 3 must not be said”. This comes in response to a question on Half-Life 3. These interactions happened during Valve President Newell’s Reddit AMA.
Newell states that Valve remains open to revisiting the entire Half Life universe. Even if it is not the third instalment of the game, it would be something similar. This is what experts are gauging from his responses.
However, Newell remains strategically vague about the core question. He has already joked that he believes “all unidentified anonymous sources on the Internet”. This is in relation to rumours of Half-Life 3 not existing at all.
What Newell Also Said
He confirms that Source 2 is being used as the primary environment for game development. Dota 2 is also being shifted to this engine. The engine is also being used for creating upcoming products.
He also talks of how the goal is to get everyone at Valve using this engine for game development. He also states that the company will strive to make this engine accessible for the general developer community as well. The final mission is to make this available absolutely free of cost as per Polygon.
