Valve: "We're Not Done With Gordon Freeman's Adventures"
Portal 2 is nigh, but what about the game that put Valve on the map? The title that typically lands on every Top 100 of All Time list ever made?
Ever since giving us the two Left 4 Dead productions and focusing on the Portal sequel, the fans have been wondering: will we ever see another Half-Life? Well, sure...someday. During an AusGamers interview with marketing and PR boss Doug Lombardi, the common question received an answer:
"You will see it, yes. We are not done with Gordon Freeman’s adventures. I have nothing other than that to tell you today, but hang in there with us."
There were over six years between the first Half-Life and the second (1998 to 2004) but then again, this is 2011...so aren't we long overdue? Granted, we've received Episodes 1 and 2 for Half-Life 2 - and maybe Lombardi is referring to Episode 3 rather than a full new title - but the fans have been hoping for a Half-Life 3 announcement.
And now that Valve has landed on the PlayStation 3 bandwagon (by giving Sony's machine the "best version" of Portal 2), we'd all like to assume a new Freeman adventure would also be on the PS3. But you never know what might happen.
