And the wait goes on….
Valve officially announced that Half Life 2: Episode 3 was a real “thing” six years ago today on May 24th 2006. Literally nothing has been heard of it since.
Originally Episode 3 was going to drop by Christmas 2007. Excuse us while we piss ourselves laughing. In fact, the Orange Box, containing Episode 2, only released in October 2007 so a delay for Episode 3 was always going to be on the cards. In saying that, no one ever thought it would be dragged out this long.
Developers Valve have yet to so much as acknowledge where the game is in development or even if it is happening at all in any way shape or form. It’s save to presume that Valve will almost certainly skip Episode 3 and just go ahead with a full on third Half-Life game. But you never know with those guys.
