News: Half Life 3 will never be released anytime soon.

38 posts in this topic

 

Couple of reasons for it. 

1) Because Valve has too much money, and feels that Half Life 3 is unecessary. So unless they're losing money, they won't make Half Life 3.

2) Because they're afraid that if they release Half Life 3, gamers will complain about it. AKA the current Half Life 3 in development sucks, or because Valve sees Mass Effect 3's GODAWFUL ending, they're afraid that Half Life 3 will receive the same hate. Which also means that they think Half Life 3 will suck right now.

 

 

One conclusion out of this:

 

Valve, you greedy fucks.

 

 

Then again, this is all just an "anonimous source from Valve", so just take it with a grain of salt, and know that it is coming. Just not anytime soon.

Um.. I think you missed the point. Valve is making more than enough to make it such that any money gained from Half Life 3 would be moot and the risk involved in making the game if it is received poorly could potentially cause irreparable harm to their intellectual property. This isn't anything against Valve but it is a smart business decision I don't fault them for making. Another thing is that this is still a rumor. This is an unsubstantiated rumor and the numbers can be taken in either direction. Based on Valve's current estimated profits it can be assumed that they have plenty of funding and capability within to create Half Life 3. There have been similar rumors levied in the past that were debunked so take any news (especially from a channel that has been proven to give too much credence to false rumors) and research. Valve has shown no signs it is slowing production to a stall for Half Life 3 and has brought on more members to their development. Valve cannot expressly say what is going on without breaking their own NDA. So it is rather difficult to defend against rumors that stand to damage their reputation.

Assuming that this source is genuine, I have to say what I saw in that video makes to much sense to ignore. I think that we all knew before this that Valve is just printing money from what they already have and doesn't need this game.

 

I also say that sadly a vocal portion of gamers online would the break into the dev's home and force them to watch as they eat the still beating hearts out of their family's chests as a backlash to Adrian Shepherd's goggles being tinted with Brunswick green instead of Caribbean green or something ridiculously stupid like that. I can see the same thing happening with the FFXV Remake if, for example, Clouds voice isn't exactly the way that the fans imagine it would be or if any of the dialogue, however irrelevant, is altered at all.

 

This is cowardly from Valve, but I'd say it's understandably cowardly.

 

 

Anyone know where I can get a silenced sniper rifle?

 

 

Thank you for proving my point.

That's why I mean. That Valve has so much money right now, that they don't have to make something the fans wanted unless they need money badly. They only care about their money instead of their fans, which is fucking sad. They need to learn from Bethesda.

 

The risk involved in making the game if it is received poorly could potentially cause irreparable harm to their intellectual property huh? Seriously though, it's fucking Half Life 3, the game that everyone has been waiting for a decade now. The only way that Valve can fuck things up is if they make a godawful ending for the series like Mass Effect 3, or make the game as equal of a quality as Ride to Hell, or Duke Nukem Forever. Oh fuck, that better not happen.

 

 

Besides, this is all just a rumor. The game will be out... eventually. I mean Shenmue 3's going to be released and people like me have been waiting for 13 years for that game, so it's no big deal.

 

 

 

What I would like Valve to do though is to just release Half Life 3 out of nowhere. Have it announced at E3, and then say that it'll be released right after the press conference. That will be one of the most awesome things a game dev have ever done. It works with Beyonce's sudden album release, and everyone of her fans instantly buy it.

 

I don't listen to Beyonce btw, my sister makes me go along with it.

Even if the game made them like 500 million they would still not care because they make like a million a day (or more probably).

Makes sense, the game industry was different when Half Life 2 came out. If they feel they can't make another entry in the series that fans will want they have no reason to do so, certainly not at this time. With social media and them running Steam they have no reason to want to deal with the annoying backlash if they fail.

 They only care about their money instead of their fans, which is fucking sad. They need to learn from Bethesda.

They need to learn from the company with terrible bug testing. That tells their PS3 fanbase to go fuck themselves when they have problems. That doesn't pay a superior studio because a metacritic average was one point too low, which was Bethesda's fault for their terrible bug testing and engine. That threatens to sue other companies that try to use the world Scroll in their name. That charges for horse armor. While my only problem with it was Valve's lazy terrible implementation, most of you seemed to have a problem with the paid mods that Bethesda wanted. No one should want other companies to learn from Bethesda.

Would it even be possible for Half-Life 3 to live up to the hype that people have built up for it over the years? Think that if it did come out, it would be a disappointment to a lot of people. It's a game that's been put on a pedestal that's much too high. Not releasing it may be the safe decision for them to keep public opinion of the series high. It's their way of leaving on a high note.

Fallout 4 and DOOM.

Then they better make sure Half Life 3 is the best game they have ever made. Too early to tell if it's going to be a dissapointment like Colonial Marines or countless other games before when there's still no gameplay footage.

One thing's for certain. After that game is finally released, doesn't matter if it's the best game ever or if it's a gigantic pile of crap. What matters is NO MORE HALF LIFE 3 CONFIRMED JOKES! I'M FUCKING TIRED OF THAT CRAP!

Couldn't agree more. Even if HL3 turns out great, even better than the first two, that still probably wouldn't be good enough.

Well, someone put up a video response:

 

But coming from a channel calling itself Valve News Network, get that salt shaker ready. You're going to need some grains of the stuff.

 

There is also this article from The Escapist that discusses the rumor.

Fallout 4 and DOOM.

Willingness to make money by continuing popular franchises makes them a good company? Ubisoft or Activision would be better to look up to then, we could be on Half Life 20 by now.

Ok let's see.....

 

Greedo shot first.

A man can survive a nuclear explosion hiding in a fridge.

Captain Picard is CLEARLY superior to Captain Kirk.

M. Night Shyamalan should finish The Last Airbender movie trilogy.

Everybody loves the Resident Evil movies.

Metal Gear Solid, Uwe Boll.  It's a match made in heaven!

I must inform you that it's Greedo and Captain Picard.

And if Shaymalan never even made an Avatar film then how can he continue the trilogy?
