Half-Life 3 Trolling?

A photo posted on Twitter by Uber Entertainment's Chandana Ekanayake shows a t-shirt with a Half-Life 3 logo, saying: "All I'm saying is I saw this at a local game developer event worn by a Valve employee." Whether this is significant, or just trolling is not clear yet. The two hash tags he uses for this are #HalfLife3 and #ValveTrolling. Thanks Computer and Video Games.

This guy even puts "troll" in his tweat. Its easy enough to mock up a tshirt and get it printed to get some attention. I mean the photo doesn't even show who is wearing it so there's no way to confirm it was a valve employee. Even if it was, it could have been done as a joke.

I don't think it has be significant or trolling. We all know HL3 is coming. I really doubt it will be "episode 3" at this point. It's not like they have denied development and this is a shocking reveal.

Actually, no, we don't know if HL3/ep3 is coming. Gabe (aka valve) has said:

a) that portal 2 was the last single player focused game (and he considers it like that even though it INCLUDES a co-op mode and in game-store) they were going to do.

b) that they work on stuff interesting to them (which explains a LOT of valve decisions). If the HL series isn't interesting to them, they aren't going to be working on it. IMHO, if thats the case, they should hire another studio to do it, like they've done for other projects in the past.

c) his employees have desks on wheels so they can go between projects as they like. And that he wants to hire people that are good at a bunch of things, instead of specialists who are good at one thing.

d) that valve is going into 3 new markets right now (mobile, MMO, social), which obviously means that's whats interesting to them right now. There's no way they can do that without taking focus away from things like PC game development. In fact, valve has said that they would hire 100 people in a heartbeat if they could find people who met the hiring criteria, so obviously they don't have enough people as it is.

Incidentally, these points explains why steam still has a lot of things lacking, they seem to not have bothered to hire UI specialists, just generalists who think they know something about UI.
