HL2: Episode 3
« on: August 28, 2017, 05:27:46 PM »
So one of the writers for HL has released an outline story for what would have been HL2: Episode 3.  You can see it here: https://pastebin.com/q9DMFa7c

I assume most of you are already aware of this.  To me this is a little sad as it probably means that we will never see the real deal.

There was never a chance you were gonna see a real HL3 anyway. At least now you know the story? :)

doubt its legit, they never come up with the story, then build it.  They look at what story they can make, and what technology they have to pull stuff off.  One of the original writers retired and said this in an interview about what happened during his time with Valve.

A bit of a related thing. I once read the Halo3 story when I realised it would never hit PC.  I'd played 1 and 2, I would have played 3 if it came to PC

From everything I've heard, it's legit.

Yeah...it seems very legit.

As for HL3 I would say that there is always a chance.  There is zero chance of HL2:Episode 3.  Other franchises have gone dark for long periods of time.  Ultimately there is money on the table since the Half Life franchise is so popular.  At some point someone will go back to that well.

Look at Valve games, they are interested in big online and multiplayer things.

TF2 (yes came out ages ago but still getting stuff), CSGO, sounds like they get a lot of cash from this, DOTA2.
