Sorry, Half-Life 3 Is Not Coming

Half-Life 3 Gordon Freeman logoDuring the past two weeks, Twitter has been blowing up with news about Half-Life 3, complete with “legitimate” logos like the one above.

Unfortunately, Valve Software writer Chet Faliszek just announced in the Valve forums that there is no plan to release the third game in the franchise.

You are being trolled.

There is no ARG.

Wheatley’s speech was set in Portal 2 fiction – that is all.

There has been no directive from Gabe to leak anything. That is all false.

I just want to say this so there is no confusion. This is the community trolling the community nothing more. While it is nice to see people excited about anything HL, I hate seeing people be trolled like this.


With most publishers and developers, when the community shows overwhelming demand for a game, an announcement becomes inevitable. However, it seems that the team at Valve is more interested in new projects than bringing back a popular franchise.
