All the talk surrounding Valve lately is mostly about them entering the console market in the near future. We shouldn’t forget that they’re also incredible developers and more than a few gamers are waiting for news regarding one of the most important Valve franchises: Half Life.
An interesting Tweet has been discovered today, pointing out that something new will be coming from Valve pretty soon: David Goldfarb, Battlefield 3 Lead Designer, stated that he saw some nice things after a meeting with Valve. Marcus Persson from Mojang asked if this meant a Half Life 3 confirmation: Goldfarb replied that his silence must be interpreted as a silence. Not denying it means that something is indeed brewing.
Dave Oshry of Interceptor Entertainment has also confirmed meeting with Valve, stating that meeting them was well worth the trip to GDC.
This is by no means a confirmation that a new Half Life title will be coming soon: it could be a totally new project with no relation to the franchise or even some new details about the upcoming Steambox. Still, people in the industry are talking about something big and a new Half Life game would be big indeed.
We will keep you updated once something new comes up.
