Half-Life 3 Will Probably Never Happen, Says Valve Insider

While this source can’t be fully verified, his words reflect much of what we have assumed for a long time now. The Half-Life saga will be in limbo foreverآ—heck, there were never any real plans for a third game to begin with. I say that Valve should just hire someone to write a book.

آ…an unnamed Valve insider says of the Half-Life series, "I don't think there will be any more," and then goes on to say, "The idea of delivering a third episode of Half-Life 2, that's dead. There's no universe where that will happen. I think there is a universe where a standalone thing could come together to fill in that hole, but that's tough." More important, the unnamed insider says, Half-Life 3 was never a thing that existed at Valve. "There is no such thing as Half-Life 3. Valve has never announced a Half-Life 3. The closest they've come is after Half-Life 2, they said there would be three episodes." So why not do a sequel now? The risk of disappointment and the difficulty of deciding on a direction are both factors, the source says.
