Over the past few months and years, we have been hearing rumors that Valve could be working on Half-Life 3. After all, why wouldn’t they? The previous two Half-Life games have proven to be huge hits, and have managed to spawn mods that have become their own games, like Counter-Strike, for example. So far Valve has been denying the rumors, but according to Counter-Strike’s co-creator, Minh Le, Half-Life 3 is being worked on, along with Left 4 Dead 3.
Come, Valve fanboys – let us huff together on the dwindling fires of Hope. Counter-Strike co-creator and former Valve employee Minh “Gooseman” Le has told goRGNtv that he’s seen concept art for Half-Life 3 – and, it appears, a build of an unannounced new Left 4 Dead. “There’s like a laser sight on my head right now!” Le observed, when a presenter invoked the dreaded Big H. “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. And so if I were to say that yeah, I’ve seen some images, like some concept art of it, that wouldn’t be big news to be honest. “But yeah, I mean like 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.”
