Half-Life 3 Clue?

GamingBolt points the way to a reddit thread about a texture allegedly found within Counter-Strike: Global Offensive that's being interpreted as a Half-Life 3 clue, though Valve has been steadfastly denying that any sort of viral marketing or ARG is underway for a continuation of their shooter series. Thanks Ant via Digg.

If they are working on HL3, which would be nice, I really hope they don't give in to Blizzard, Bioware, etc style hyping with announcements well over a year before the game will be out. If they are going to release it in June (as an example), announce it in May.

That's likely to be the case, that's how they've handled many of their other game releases. Most companies need the hype but Valve has a built-in audience thanks to Steam and their popular IP, they don't need to do magazine ramp ups and etc.

I'll personally laugh my ass off if Valve keeps denying it, then one day it shows up for sale on Steam without warning.

Knowing them, I couldn't put that past them.

I've been praying to Superman for this very scenario. If anyone could pull off a stunt like this, it's Valve.

Valve hires talented 3D animators like Karen Prell. They begin to release short films for TF2, slowly becoming longer; the most recent tops five minutes in length, and the quality has increased immensely.

Half-Life 3 isn't coming as a game.

Humm no, HL3 simply gonna be a game with cinematics...thinking that HL3 will not be a game is just crazy and a terrible decision.

It doesn't matter when Valve announces Half Life 3 because they are going to delay it by at least a year anyway.

I honestly think that Valve loves to troll all the clue finders over and over again.

It's all about the marketing game.

Deny. Deny. Deny. Deny. CONFIRM!

I'll personally laugh my ass off if Valve keeps denying it, then one day it shows up for sale on Steam without warning.

Can you imagine the huge media storm that would create? No knowing them it would not surprise me. Although an Aug would be nice.

That would suit me just fine, as they'd surely release a game based on the movie.

Even if Valve had a particular release date in mind, what's the likelihood that they'd actually hit it, given their previous track record? They seem to be taking Trent Reznor's path, and over almost the same timeframe: less interested in the actual product, more interested in how the product is packaged, consumed, and sold. This isn't to say it's a bad thing, as we're going through massive upheaval in how every type of media and entertainment is distributed, and these experiments at the fringe are necessary. Digital music outsold physical last year, and boxed PC games are becoming dinosaurs. But I'd still love to hear a new NIN album that affects me as much as The Downward Spiral, and I'd love to play a Valve shooter with the solid, intelligent, seamlessly-integrated characters from, and gameplay innovations of, Half-Life 2.

Yeah Reznor's work is watered down these days. I'm a fan, but it needs to be said.
