    i think the last nail of the coffin for anything hl3 related was when laidlaw or whoever the fuck released the script for what hl3 was meant to be played as

    If we ever even see a HL3, the story laid out by Laidlaw (no pun intended) won't be anywhere near the finished product, obviously. Hopefully the people working on Project Borealis get it right.

    I wouldn't complain if Kojima took up the mantle as writer.

    But, he has been visiting lots of companies so I doubt anything will really come from this. Blah.

    bennet and anony have been stopping the release of half life 3 for years via a series of bribes, threats and assassinations so that it doesnt interfere with their established tnb hl2 canon...

    laidlaw isn't the end-all be-all of hl storytelling, and as much as I loved epistle 3, I'd e disappointed if they didn't try something else

    also rumor has is they've been rehiring a lot of the writing staff so maybe laidlaw might come back after all

    i think after over 11 years of hype and expectation they think whatever hl3 is, itll be seen as a disappointment that theyd rather not risk

    I think that's a bit debatable. At this point, HL3 is something of an enigma. To the common person, it's just a "haha valve can't make games with three". The only people I could see disappointed by the game are those that have stuck by it the entire time, those that are big supporters of Valve, and those in communities like these. As a game, I think it would work fine no matter how it's done unless they REALLY fuck it up.

    However, as a game in the Half-Life series, no matter what they do, there's bound to be cries of outrage from the dedicated followers.

    Sure, it's a risk they may as well not take because the reward probably won't be grand, but I think they make enough money from every other source to just write it off as a failed attempt. One failed game, even one as big as Half-Life 3, won't be sinking the titan of a ship that Valve has made itself into.

    Alyx Vance bikini mods suddenly become canon.

    In all seriousness, this was probably an interaction around Steam and Kojima's new studio. If you think Valve would even think about taking the corporate risk of tarnishing the legacy of HL2 with a new game over 11 years after the last installment when they could just sit on the monopoly of video game distribution that they have, you're being optimistic.

    this subforum is dead anyway so this isnt a much as much as its a reply

    my general theory is hl3 was briefly in the works, but was side aside. i think this occured many times, with the same end result. delays delays delays.

    i think at this point steam/valve is trying to work on being at the forefront of future gaming tech. whether thats VR or what have you, im guessing they want to find a way to mass-market a new high-end gaming system that utilizes steam and vr. something the average consumer can buy, that can run and perform like a high-end gaming pc... just for an alluring price that the regular parent can afford to buy for their kids, much like xbox/ps4 atm.

    alternatively the use of virtual machines, but point being

    once the general infrastructure is set and people around the world are all more or less on par tech wise and can easily run next gen games etc i imagine will see some kind of hl3. what will it look like who knows
