Gooseman Outs Half-Life 3 and L4D3 Development?

A recent Twitch interview with Minh "Gooseman" Le includes some quotes from the Counter-Strike co-creator and Tactical Intervention creator about Half-Life 3, saying he has seen concept art from the shooter sequel, and that Valve is "working on it" (thanks NowGamer). The ex-Valve employee starts by saying "I don't know if I can talk about that," before doing so, ending by saying he thinks that it's "old news" and that "everyone kind of knows it's being worked on." He then goes on to express his excitement over another unannounced project, the "new Left for Dead." He jokes about being in trouble for the Half-Life revelation, but also clearly thinks that both games have already been announced in some form. Here we have transcribed the parts pertinent to the two games:

"I think it's kind of public knowledge that people know that it is being worked on, and so if I say 'yeah, I've seen some images, like some concept art of it,' you know, that wouldn't be big news. I guess I could say that I did see something that looked like kind of in the Half-Life universe. It wouldn't surprise anyone if I said 'yeah, they're working on it,' so I guess to go on a limb, I would say yeah, I did see some concept art for Half-Life 3."
...
"The one thing I am really excited about is Left 4 Dead, the new Left 4 Dead... It wouldn't be any news if I said I saw it and it looks great. So, I was really excited when I saw that, I was like 'wow, this looks great'. Because I really loved Left 4 Dead, it's just one of those games that changed the industry."

I don't even remember the story outside of Half Life 1.

Aliens invade Earth. A resistance fights back, led by a mute scientist who has achieved near-messianic status. There's also a guy in a blue suit who is very mysterious.

There. The story of Half-Life.

They did this on purpose... it's a mislead. We're not getting HL3 but HL Ep3 instead! SO after X years of waiting we'll get another 4h slice to wet it up for the XXX years of waiting for HL3. While I'm glad valve isn't cranking out a HL game every year, I would like to see some forward progress in the story.

A possible HL3 hint and only 30 comments so far? Valve would be smart to NOT make HL3. There is no interest in it anymore

I never really got into Half Life 2, or both episodes for it, so I'm not really that excited about a Half Life 3. I don't even remember the story outside of Half Life 1. My favorite part of the entire series is still when the marines show up in the first game.

I'm excited for both, but honestly I have more anticipation for L4D3.

fair enough, but what was the last game Valve (in house) released?

officially DOTA 2. last year. I don't really think CS:GO counts (not sure how much Hidden Path did of that one), but it was out in 2012. Portal 2, a 3 platform game, released in 2011. L4D1 and 2 in 2009 and 2010.

I think he was asking about (in house) games, in like not just a mod team brought into the house to pimp up their mod and release it as a commercial game...

...which for some reason gives me the feeling the graphics won't be as good as UE4 maybe.

Who cares? Source's graphics weren't necessarily as good as Unreal 2/3, but it made up for it in other ways.

"I think it's kind of public knowledge that people know that it is being worked on,..."

Is it? How would it be? How do we know everyone at Valve isn't working on completely unrelated stuff? They aren't exactly the most forthcoming company. There hasn't been a damn word has been said about HL3 in several years now - anyone could be forgiven for thinking Valve has moved on to greener pastures after all this time.

noticed at the 41:20 mark he talks about Source 2.0, and how Unreal/Unity pretty much does everything Steam does (and more?), which for some reason gives me the feeling the graphics won't be as good as UE4 maybe.

I've said it before... If Valve employees can work on whatever they want (and they can) you better believe there's a group who spend their time working on HL3.

This is what I assumed as well. I imagine HL3 is going through development hell and several engine iterations or changes. It was the same deal with HL2 when they apparently kept changing stuff during its development.

I would rather reread Dante's Inferno than anything this Gooseman guy says or writes. Those two paragraphs are simply awful, let alone the rest which I am sure is just as bad, and the person who transcribed it must have been on the boss's shit list.

$10 space bucks says that it'll be HL3 and L4D3 in some sort of orangeish type box for the new consoles. probably 3 years into the consoles lifespan, let's say 2016?

either that or they're going to keep it as a PLATFORM exclusive, being apart of every steambox sold. that and/or PC. this would be another way to draw customers to their exclusive stuff like steam, just like they did with HL2.

but who actually remembers the HL2 launch?
