Gamescom 2023’s app may have leaked a new Half-Life announcement

Half-Life fans, here is something for you today. It appears that the official mobile app for Gamescom 2023 may have leaked an upcoming Half-Life announcement.

According to the app, Valve will be present at Gamescom 2023. Not only that, but the app contains the Half-Life tag, suggesting a new HL announcement.

Now I’d strongly recommend tempering your expectations. This won’t likely be Half-Life 3 (at this point, I don’t expect Valve to ever develop it). So no, don’t start with the “Half-Life 3 confirmed baby” memes. However, I’d definitely welcome the return of the “Half-Life, 3 screenshots” meme.

Anyway, if I had to guess, I’d say that this may be a port of Half-Life: Alyx to PSVR2. That or Valve may announce the sequel to Alyx. There are also reports that Valve is working on a multiplayer game that is based on the Half-Life universe.

If you are still interested in the third episode of Half Life 2, I’d suggest taking a look at the following mods. There are currently two HL2: Episode 3 mods that you can download, Half-Life 2: Episode Three Minimalist and Half-life 2 Episode 3: The Return. And, unfortunately, it appears that both Boreal Alyph and Project Borealis have been canceled.

Lastly, you can find below two from the Gamescom 2023 app. These images confirm Valve’s presence at this upcoming gaming event. Still, and as I’ve already said, you should keep your expectations in check.
