Remember when we posted that Half-Life 3 t-shirt a while back? That shirt and a few other subtle rumors (including tweets from people allegedly connected to Valve Software, the makers of Half-Life, led to an increasing conviction on the interwebs that the release of Half-Life 3 is imminent.
A few days ago, Chet Faliszek, a Valve writer, wrote on the official Steam forums that all of the rumors were false.
So the question remains: what is going on with the Half-Life franchise?
ForeverGeek has a great summary of the happenings, but unfortunately for fans, no one has the real scoop. It’s getting to the point where Valve needs to seriously consider whether their lack of communication of any kind with fans is good for the franchise, particularly on as long a timeline as this.
