So your friend heard from his friend who used to go out with a girl who was a cousin of a Valve developer that Half-Life 3
would be released as a Steam exclusive this March? Or maybe you just crawled across a convincing website
which seemed to point to another, long-awaited iteration in the Half-Life
series? Well bad news, friends: "You are being trolled."
That's the word from Valve writer Chet Faliszek, who says on the Steam forums
that "there is no ARG," and there are no official hints out there at all that a third Half-Life
game is coming any time soon. We don't care how convincing that secret FTP that the guy on IRC told you about was: any Half-Life 3
rumors so far are completely unofficial, as great as that fan-made Portal short
Then again, it would
be just like Valve to say that an official ARG wasn't official, wouldn't it? Maybe they're just trying to hide the real story by saying it too is a fake! Conspiracy!
