It’s really ironic, isn’t it? E3 is about to start and – as you’d expect – there is no mention or hints about Half Life 3. Okay, there were some onion rings but… come on. You can’t possibly take that onion rings seriously now, can you? Unless of course they are really tasteful, in which case Valve should keep them coming. Apart from those onion rings though, Valve has not revealed anything and according to the company’s Chet Faliszek, when Valve announce Half Life 3, they’ll do it their way and not by simply revealing it via a T-Shirt or some hidden web code.
That was unveiled in the latest issue of gaming magazine ‘GAMES’. In a long 14-page special that covers every last detail known about the game’s development and includes exclusive contributions from Faliszek, Kim Swift and her fellow Portal co-creator Jeep Barnett.
As Faliszek said:
“When we announce Half-Life 3 it won’t be on a t-shirt or a forum or some obscure internet game. We’ll do it in our own way.”
According to GAMES newsletter, the 123 issue of GAMES will be out in 7th of June and its Valve special includes an in-depth investigation into the developer’s hardware ambitions, including the possibility of a Steam console, updates on its newest games Dota 2 and Counter Strike: Global-Offensive, an exclusive Q&A with the creators of the Portal 2: Perpetual Testing Initiative DLC and a huge interview with Portal co-creator Kim Swift about her entire career to date.
Those interested can grab the latest issue of GAMES from here in June 7th.
