The tool is built on Valve’s Source Engine and as it always happens, some files which could be tied to either Left 4 Dead 3 or Half-Life 3 has been discovered. All the included mentions were compiled by Valve News Network. Keep in mind that this is simply speculations since any direct connection between the Source Engine files and games that are actually in development are yet to be discovered.
In the meantime, there are certain strong reasons why Valve should decide to make Half Life 3. Firstly, there is a HUGE demand for a sequel. If the upcoming installment does live up to its expectations and even if it doesn’t, the pre-orders will be massive, simply massive!
That is how stuff works. If the filmmakers at Hollywood knew that there was demand for a sequel, they would go ahead and make the damn film! Moreover, Half Life 2 ended on a cliffhanger and that needs to be resolved. Half Life 3 could also become an MMOFPS and if that happens, the possibilities are endless in the already vast Half-Life world.
Stay tuned for more updates on Half-Life 3!
