Valve should be fucking boycotted for turning into a piece of shit micro transaction company. Seriously fuck all you money grabbing charlatans

I feel bad for any of you people still holding out hope for HL3, it’s been over a decade now with no info and Valve not making any games of note. Move the fuck on and realize there are better game series out there that actually do have great sequels and it only takes 5 years or less. Even Rockstar Games is more consistent with putting out new games, content, or showing they are actually working on something. Valve used to be great but they got lazy, greedy, and flat out stopped giving a fuck.

+Offworlder1 if they say they won't make any half life games it won't matter. Steam is one of the most popular platforms for pc and it most certainly beats origin. Not to mention the amount of money they get from people who want their games in the steam store.
Offworlder1 (1 month ago)
A Toaster To keep people on the hook and keep gamers supporting them, if Valve said “Half -Life is not getting anymore games for the foreseeable future” almost everyone who uses steam will abandon them. Valve’s claim to fame is Half-Life and they are still riding it’s coat tails. I don’t know anyone who is a Valve fan that does not know of Half-Life, saying it’s over or dead would turn the community against them and that means they lose their cash flow.

+Offworlder1 why not say it's cancelled and be done with it?

A Toaster Those people are idiots, Valve stopped giving a shit about Half-Life long ago.

They never said it was cancelled. Of course people are still holding on.

If there really is an infinite number of universes, then there must be one in which HL3 is released.

forget HL3, just give us Episode 3. even if the story is out, just freaking make it. Take you very quick, bound to turn you a profit and at least closes the Half Life 2 chapter. There will probably never be an actual Half Life 3.

In my opinion, Epistle 3 is not the conclusion the the Half-Life Saga. Here's why. First of all, it was only the possible plot of Episode 3. It's not like this was the plot the whole Half-Life team had 100% decided, and then the game's development fizzled out. No. This was a possible plot out of what I'm sure were a meaty amount. Second of all, Marc Laidlaw himself pointed out on Twitter that this 'idea' for a story is unpolished. Would Alyx really shoot Mossman? He also pointed out that the story would change a lot as you tried to build it from a blog post into a videogame. In my opinion, Marc Laidlaw's 'Epistle 3' is not the conclusion of Half-Life, and I hope to see Valve release a true Half-Life 3 up ahead.

That would've been an amazing mind blowing story for the game 😢 Something so amazing and shocking that i would've expected Valve to do as such for the trilogy and it fits the story pretty well And now you spoiled it! Thanks man Thanks alot 😞 I don't know if i want Half Life 3 anymore

i was looking on upcoming games to PC on a norwegian gamenews outlet called gamereactor, on the 4 page i found: Half - Life 2: Episode 3 and Half- Life 3 just a little longer down. i also saw Bully 2 and some other cool titels, but its 2019++ for sure

I have a half life lambda tattoo on my arm basically as homage to how the rebels wore the symbol on their arms in the game. I'm really late on hearing about this but part of me just died. I read the story Laidlaw released. I'm actually upset.
Plasma Dragoon (9 months ago)
Wow, that's some real passion you have for that game. It's pretty awesome, in my opinion! I woulda liked to see that tattoo and I'm sorry to hear you were/are upset, everyone here shares that same feeeling.
Gentleman (10 months ago)
Honestly, if episode three does come out, I'm not buying it, not playing it. Valve will just change the story and it'll be a steaming shit comparable to No man's sky. I'm already guessing it'll be a shitty game based on what valve will do from here. But they probably wont even come out with it so, I guess I can take some peace that we've gotten the closure.

Marc laidlaw was fired, so he released the story because he was mad that the all half life games were cancelled forever. Have a nice day

The Obscure Earrapist (10 months ago)
half life is fucking dead and its obvious at this point, as much as i love half life its 100% obvious. its been so overhyped that no matter what valve would do, they'd get backlash for the game "not being worth the wait" or "not as good" and more. sure, people can make fangames based off of this story that Laidlaw released, but it will never be an official valve game, no matter how hard the community tries. rest in piece half life, you were amazing.
Sasuke Uchiha (10 months ago)
I actually liked what the post said, and the way it ends leads to the possibility of a 4th Half-Life, or another 3 part Half-Life game, like HL 2. Alyx kills Dr. Mossman and is later taken by G-Man, before the Borealis explodes. Gordan is saved, but is in the future, and doesn’t know if the Combine won or lost. I think someone should just take the events from this story and turn it into a game. Even if this story isn’t canon, that doesn’t matter. We won’t get an official HL 3, but this story would be the closest thing to an official HL 3 story that we’ll get. Someone could just make this a mod for Half-Life 2, or just make it an entirely new game, with the mechanics of HL2, along with new mechanics. Also, now that Gordan is in the future, he can probably find Chell.

@all the people saying "it would never live up to the hype" uh yes...yes it would...because all us fans want is just a continuation of the story. We don't give 2 shits about fancy EA graphics or fucking awesome sick loot crates and multiplayer modes. Just take the same goddamn engine and fucking stick this script into it fucking round up the voice actors and then drop the mic. Fucking mind blowing that they would give up on the game that made them because "eh it'd be too hard to make a game that's already fucking written." I mean there are 2 options here Valve: 1) Just fucking make the game to shut us up or 2)Don't make it and become a replacement to EA on the shit company scale.

It basically makes an allegory out of his partnership with Valve, and ends with Freeman not knowing what the results (if any) were. Hinting that this whole story might've meant everything, or nothing at all. Once again in limbo, always more questions than answers. 'Tis the Half-Life way
Rickedy Split (1 year ago)
I originally wanted to join valve like a year ago, i though to myself "when i'm 18 i'll work at valve" but after this, i definitely wouldn't anymore. I thought it would be cool, the ability to be able to work on anything i wanted sounded amazing. But now I've realized, I've seen the light like everyone, Valve don't care about making games fans want. Valve doesn't make games, they just make the thing that's most popular, aka Skins, loot boxes and other shitty micro-transactions. we have waited 9 years since episode 2 (nearly 10!) and gotten nothing. it makes me sad realizing this company that I once wanted to join become so lazy. Fuck you Valve.

Marc Laidlaw sounds like a Nice Guy 😂 m'lady 😏 Also, I hope JJ Abrams is making episode 3 into a movie with his weird AR Cloverfield series. I have a feeling the third movie in the Cloverfield series is gonna be HL2ep3 but with a lot more Portal crossover.

Seriously, I hate Valve more than EA and Ubi combined. Sure, those companies mentioned were making a fools of us, gamers, for longer than we can remember. They're just money hungry shits. But Valve was something different. Valve was loved. Valve gave us best memories, in many cases great childhoods, they gave us unforgettable emotions. And then they turned into money hungry soulless shits. It's far worse. It's just like, imagine, you hearing unpleasant words from random dude on the street - meh... compared to hearing them from the person you love the most in your life, for whom you'd do anything in the world. That's a heart broken right there.

Just read the letter. Very interesting, shame it won't be continued in such a way, but Laidlaw certainly made the best way to conclude the series with a bang, Mossman dies, Alyx get's dragged into another reality by Gman, The Borealis is a time nuke flying towards a Combine Nexus, which even if destroyed is one of many quintillions of such invasion Nexus' meaning resistance is utterly pointless and yet there he was, on a beach woken up after who knows how many years had passed, only to find the current resistance is even weaker than before, but the people still despise their rulers and want to rebel. And so like any good time story, it all begins again , and again, and again, and again, and again. And in the end, The End is Never The End is Never The End is Never The End is Never The End is

To be honest, and I hate to be THAT guy, but... There's no way Half Life 3/ Half Life 2: Episode 3 would survive in this gaming environment, everything's different now, and a full return to the roots would be too far fetched, the game won't do well, people will be extremely disappointed, etc. If they create it like they made previous HL games, everyone would say that it's lacking, especially for something so hyped up, due to the fact that previous HL games came out ages ago, and technology back then by today's standards is pretty primitive. But if Valve do the opposite, and create it more in-line with other games currently out there, everyone'll say that HL3 is unfaithful to the trilogy, and they might do something terrible, like add microtransactions, or a fucking companion app or something. *tl;dr Half Life 3 will never live up to the hype, and it's Valves fault for not commenting on it for over a decade, leaving the community to fill in the gaps with speculation and letting their ideas go wild.*

For all those people who say HL3 is dead, we dont know that Marc Laidlaw is no longer with Valve and doesnt know anything about it anymore, Valve changes there games so much before release so it prob would of had a dif storyline anyways but HL3 still has a chance.
