"Yes." That's the content of a Gabe Newell email from a couple of days ago that's the basis for a new video from the Valve News Network. And no, it's not because the answer has three letters, so Half-Life 3 confirmed! The one-word response was to the question: "Hi Gaben, is Valve still working with J.J. Abrams on a movie?" The idea of the video is to present everything that's known about previously announced plans for Valve and J.J.'s Bad Robot to make movies based on Half-Life and Portal. The background they present makes his affirmation a surprise, as several developments following the announcement seem to suggest that this collaboration had fallen by the wayside. They also speculate that since J.J. Abrams seemed confident a couple of years ago that an announcement about movie plans was near that things may be further along at this point than all this radio silence suggests. The video also takes Valve to task for their poor communication on topics like this, but that doesn't seem likely to change, so it is what it is. But they also say they hear rumors of a culture change at Valve following some new hires that they hope will move some projects like this out of "development hell," and they express hopes that this turns out to be the case, a sentiment we can wholeheartedly get behind.
