"Compilation of interviews / events in chronological order where Gabe Newell first talks about Half Life 2 Episode 3 then suddenly becomes silent about it. I tried to get the best possible quality from internet archives. Some of this footage is from websites that are now inactive. The GTTV ones from February 2008 and September 2009 were not reuploaded to this day."

You know, i'm going to be honest here in that I don't think Half-Life 3 is going to happen. Even if it does it would be best that we all sort of just let it go to help make peace with it taking even longer or it not happening at all. It's obviously taken much longer to make than Valve anticipated, which is a story i'd love for them to talk about sometime. Don't get me wrong, i'd love a new Half-life game but it's been 10 years now and I think it's time to move on.

Valve, specifically, should make it policy to never talk about games they are releasing, until they hit gold (ready to produce). The novelty of "Valve-time" is dissipating. It doesn't take a company with the size and experience of Valve ten years to make a game. Half-Life 2: ep 3/Half-Life 3 will probably be a VR title at this point, or whatever the successor to VR will be. Everyone else is doing cool things, and releasing them. Maybe it was a sign that Portal tech came from outside the company?

Yeah, it seems like they had a pretty open policy talking about upcoming games and then at some point you can see where it all changed. They are pretty lock and key about it all now, but it always wasn't such.

I think having an outside team can help at times for sure and I really liked that we got Portal and Portal 2. I'd love a Portal 3 but that might just be wishful thinking on my part. smile

What, Portal 3? Valve can't count to 3.
