Half-Life 2: Return to Ravenholm Screenshots

A post from Friday on has screenshots from "Return to Ravenholm," allegedly a new Half-Life 2 episode being developed as HL2 Episode Four by Arkane Studios before the project was cancelled. They say this was in the works between 2006 and 2007. Valve has yet to comment on this, hopefully because they are so hard at work on Episode Three. Thanks VG247.

Gabe calls Arkane Studios

Gabe: Guys, anything new on Episode 4? Guess not.
Arkane: Well, we got a prealpha that we're playing right now.
Gabe: YOU... GOT... WHAT?!
Arkane: Just a first build we're fooling around with. It's nice. We got some new ideas, some new textures, ideas for additions to the hud and the gameplay...
Arkane: Why? What the hell? What's the problem? How's Episode 3 doing?
Gabe: Episode 3? We don't feel it, dude. And if we don't feel it, we can't do it. But within just 15 months, we decided which new hats we're going to create for TF2 within the next 5 years.
Arkane: Guys, really, what are you doing? What about Episode 3?
Gabe: Now, now, now, don't put the pressure on us, will you? There is no episode 3! Keep this bad stress, we don't want it!
*In the background, a sitar starts playing and people murmuring OM can be heard.
Gabe: Oh, shit, it's guru meditation time! Sorry, guys, gotta leave! Can't miss it! Oh, and forget about Episode 4. If we don't feel like doing Episode 3, what should Episode 4 be good for. It sounds rushed, anyways.
Arkane: It's not rushed, we're simply focussed on this develp-...
Gabe: Bro, sorry, you sound like too much stress. Know what? I hereby declare Episode 4 DEAD. See? No more stress, no more pressure. Bye, and please don't call again!
*Hangs up*
Consoles? I owned two: a Pong clone and an Atari 2600. And that's it.
