This could just as well be Valve trolling all of us. Don't get your hopes up just yet.

Been rumors for years now if Half Life 3 will actually come out, I'm hoping they do bring it sooner then later, there's still a loyal fan base for the game!

The issues were with moving HL2 over to the Steampipe distribution method.

To quote gigapixels on IRC:

[09:27:48] <%gigapixels> i feel like valve will release HL3 without any prior notification
[09:27:53] <%gigapixels> they don't need the advertising
[09:27:59] <%gigapixels> everybody's already waiting for it

It's not entirely impossible, but... colour me skeptical for now. Until we have more information.

To me that looks more like Portal 3, especially the button saying "Basically just a big room full of knives", that sounds more like a Portal level.

 

Also that Japanese in that tweet translates to "Prepare for unexpected results", that's a testing term, which the Portal games are, just a big series of tests. I think it's Portal 3.

The end of that tweet, which is Korean, translates to "Prepare for unexpected results ..."

 

"Big room full of knives" is Gabe's office. You should see it. And note what's under the stickynote.

I think the anticipation is so high that any game released couldn't possibly live up to that anticipation.

 

A years have past since the last instalment and gaming has also changed since then. If it ever comes out it would be really interesting to see how it was received.

maybe cause no one mentioned it at all this year at e3 that they decided to get the rumours out again so people wouldn't loose interest...

I know I shouldn't get my hopes up, but I can't help it. :(

 

There was also that Easter egg in Portal 2. http://www.youtube.c...h?v=U2557K2YNeI (I'm hoping that is real anyway...as I haven't done that myself, only seen clips).

half-portal

Thats what im hoping for a great portal 3/HL 3 tie in, 

 

on a side note i think that Aperture Science and the whole Portal 2 had a lot more personality that HL did. 

 

It would be good if they were to do something to end the story, it gets annoying when a story goes on forever without a conclusion. 

 

A great change up was the difference between HL and HL2 differen environment, (sort off) different enemies.

It was strange though, the easter egg in Portal 2 mentioned a ship in the arctic and the pic mentions a terrarium which is a desert style tank for reptiles so the 2 are completely opposite environments, maybe there are portals involved somewhere.

Well, now I need to go and play the Portal series again, and maybe get around to finishing HL2. I guess I'm one of the few that's hoping it's a Portal reference...
