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.

No but Gordon is the problem, no speech or character depth. Valve can't stay locked in that pattern for long and they are innovators. My guess is they are adding a whole new storyline/arc with a new lead PC.

A silent protagonist is not a problem. See Portal's success. As long as the surrounding story and characters are compelling, people don't have a problem with silent protagonists.

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.

The HL games have some of the best level design out there. That's what separates them from most of today's shooters that rely entirely on fancy set pieces to cover up lazy design.
