    It's probably true given that HL is a well known franchise and is all but guaranteed to be a top seller.

    Rumours or not - I want the next f'ing instalment! Hopefully the Black Mesa project will be finished before so that we can all play through HL1 with nice shiny GFX.

    I suspect release date on the 21.12.2012, and the plots about the end of the world...

    Eh, Valve can take their time if that means HL3/Ep3 will be awesome. It would be great tough if it happens this century.

    I think this is true; it's been way long overdue. It also sounds like something Valve would have released this rumour to get media attention.

    I had great hopes for Black Mesa but i see it's a vaporware now. Said to be released at the end of 2010. It's almost 2012 now and still nothing.

    So if this is Valve's way of advertising it means HL3 will be released in about 10 years? Since we're going by Valve time.

    Not interested. Never was. But if hl3 is something groundbreaking and got nothing to do with 1 and 2 then I can give it a try.

    After seeing new games like f3ar, wolfenstein or deus ex hr and realising that they have nothing new it's easy to lose interest in anything. Even tho I totally love DNF.

    I think I'd get rather excited about Doom 4 and Quake 5.

    Wait actually some news about Half-Life???? Thought the project was dead Valve. Couldn't believe how big a cliff hanger they left us with in episode 2 to then turn around and take forever to put out episode 3/hl 3. It better now be PS3 exclusive, I want to play it on my PC.

    No, HL3 is not going to be PS3 exclusive. That is rubbish and makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. Mark Chubb is either a troll or an idiot. Possibly both but really just a wanker who wants to get his little article on the internet read. I'm sorry I even clicked on the link to the article as that's one more visitor to his site/article. He doesn't deserve it for such vomit. The article isn't even remotely interesting other than the said vomit.

    Of course HL3 is in development, it's been in development for years and most people know it. What most people don't know and want to know is when it's going to be released. So.. some guy wore a shirt that may or may not have been a Valve employee. Whoop-ti-doo!

    Personally, I think that Valve will not release HL3 until the next-gen consoles are out. Not becuase there's a planned exclusive, but because the console audience is far too large to ignore.


    However, I have been waiting for HL2: Episode3 for a long time, and would gladly buy it right this second. I hope the two are not rolled into the same title, and remain separate.

    the odd thing is that current gen consoles should be able to run half-life 2 and it's episodes so even if they planned to add in console support why not release episode 3 now for console and pc and wait for the next gen consoles to release HL3 on both console and pc?

    My guess is tech has nothing to do with the delay. I simply think all the mystery surrounding the the events of the half life series makes it a big pain in the ass to develop continuing storylines for. So basically they have no idea how they want a new storyline to go and thus can't continue with development.

    Best bet to just stay PC exclusive - or if just a console version without any changes/adjustments for console gameplay (like CSGO)

    I think only Blue Shift and Opposing force where PC exclusives; you had the Dreamcast unreleased version and PS2 version of HL1, then Orange Box for PS3 and 360 (PS3 version was total gash). Half Life has never really been PC exclusive.

    I don't think Valve is that stupid and makes HL3/Ep3 console exclusive. It doesn't even make the slightest bit of sense if you consider the Steam platform.

    I think what Valve may do is make the next Half Life for PS3, PC but not 360. Quite the turn around from the days of them not really favouring the PS3.

    There's some Steamworks features on Playstation, achievements and such.

    It won't be PS3 exclusive. The "PS3 guys" were hired for Portal 2 and all future titles from Valve.
