Half-Life 2: Episode 3 Art?

This Facebook Page has artwork that fan site ValveTime believes is from Half-Life 2: Episode 3 circa 2008, saying: "These fantastic images have been sent in by an anonymous visitor to the site from an unknown source. Despite that, we have no reason to believe they aren't real. One could argue that perhaps they are just generic Half-Life 2 concept art of concepts that never made it into the final game. But there's plenty of evidence here to suggest they are post Episode 2." Computer and Video Games says they've reached out to Valve for comment.

HL2 Ep3 or HL3, whatever people are calling it now, is already past that point where no matter what Valve releases it won't live up to the time it took for it to actually come out.

Especially if they plan on releasing another basic "Heres a few weapons and a health meter." shooter. That formula was already long in the tooth when HL2 came out.

That's not to say HL2 wasn't a great game, but it's been a lot of years. I want something more than a 1990s formula shooter with a slightly improved Source engine.

The episodic model is the only thing that has failed and Valve has admitted that. They are more than likely developing a real sequel to finish the series out. Once you realize that then remember the 6 year gap between HL1 and 2. Half-life was never a 90's shooter considering that most 90's shooters emulated the no plot quake style. There is nothing wrong with the way Half-life tells its story that makes it dated.
