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.

Pass on a Halflife game? I never thought such a thing possible, what have we come to? I don't care if it takes them three months or another three years, I'll be patiently awaiting the trilogy closer.

Better have a new engine on par with BF3 or Crysis!

I doubt it, Valve has said they are going to push the Source engine as far as they can before making a full new engine. I think that is a good thing as well, its nice having a developer push an engine this long, unlike every other dev that seems they have to make a brand new engine every year. Source is still great, especially for people without top of the line computers.

Unless there are loads of awesome new gameplay mechanics I may actually pass then.

Portal 2 was a showcase of Source's memory address limitations. It had a loading screen in the middle of an action sequence.

HL2 had plenty of high-end DX9 features when it was released BTW- it was also backwards-compatible with slower systems.

Valve generally doesn't leak this sort of information until they're ready to. If this guy really is a Valve employee, then he's either wearing that shirt with the knowledge and approval of whoever decides those things at Valve, or he's going to be looking for a new job shortly.

The crowbar shadow making a 2 as Half Life 2's first hint of existence was actually clever. I'm calling bullshit on the lame t-shirt.

The shirt is probably a prank, you know like irony and shit - I want one now myself.

Agreed. The BF3 engine is quite nice.

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.

It's actually just an intentional troll to give Dev a heart attack.

I agree with you on that, its been far too long for it to be just another episode. People expect a full blown Half-Life 3.

I would really hope that Valve wouldn't be that evil towards its fan base.
