With all the fan displeasures that has generated from the continuous hearsays on the next installment for Valve's Half-Life franchise, it might as well be suitable to accept the fact that we will not be getting any update from this lifetime.
Half-Life 3's condition has gone from worse to truly bad following 2007's Half-Life 2: Episode Two, eliminating the chances of an episodic trilogy from the first-person shooter game. According to Kotaku, the creators of Half-Life have somehow met a blank wall when they launched their sequel almost a decade ago. It was mentioned that Half-Life 2: Episode Two lacked objectivity in the process and it sprang a lot of existentialist questions down the pipeline unlike the first chapter which promoted a sort of development for the "Gordon Freeman" character.
Another worthy mention is that former employees of the video game developer and digital distribution company had become alienated to what the company's goal has become. It has been said that Valve has discontinued making games which are not just high quality but bestsellers as well.
To give everyone a recap, Half-Life 2: Episode 2 gave you the chance in the beginning to save your own daughter. This is then followed by six more segments that set its continuing action out of the normal urban settings of Episode One.
Adding more injury to this misfortune is a German hoax which was intended to further distort fans of the Half-Life video game series. A said promotional banner made its way to Gamescom 2016. The somewhat familiar orange signage of the series was changed to resemble an entirely different ad which only added confusion as it read "Half-Life: 3 editors who played it back then," according to Christian Times.
However, there is still more to be desired with this predicament as the year 2018 will be the 20th anniversary of the Half-Life series along with the recent office expansion of the Kirkland-based studio, according to PR Web.
