Is it finally happening??? Counter-Strike creator and former Valve employee, Minh Le, has revealed that the HIGHLY anticipated game, “Half-Life 3” is currently in development. I think I almost had a stroke typing that sentence out.
Le was trying to be cryptic while assuring fans that the game was in progress. He said,
“I don’t think I can talk about that, to be honest, but I think it’s kind of public knowledge, that people know that it is being worked on,” Le said on the podcast goRGNtv. “I guess I could say that I did see something that looked kinda like in the Half-Life universe. And I mean it wouldn’t surprise anyone if I said they’re doing it, they’re working on it, yeah. So to go on a limb I’d say I did see some concept art for Half-Life 3.”
Valve has been notoriously quiet and secretive about whether “Half-Life 3” was even being planned. They have never even acknowledged the project’s existence. So, it is quiet surprising that Le would be allowed to talk about it.
He also said that Valve is currently in development on the a new installment for the “Left 4 Dead” series. He added,
“I saw it, it looks great. I was really excited when I saw that, I was like ‘wow, this looks great’.”
Last year when mention of “Half-Life 3” and “Left 4 Dead 3” were found in Valve documentation. Valve head Gabe Newell reportedly said that they were going to explore multiplayer gaming instead.
