Valve’s Gabe Newell always seems to find time to fire off an email here and there to eager players wanting to know more (or, well, anything) about Half-Life 3. He’s been at it again recently, although the information contained within will not be great news for people hoping for some kind of Valve surprise at E3.
In a reply to a forum member at the fan site ‘Valvetime’, Newell states pretty clearly that “We are not announcing anything at E3. Really. We are not announcing Half-Life 3 or Portal 3 or Left 4 Dead 3. We are going to be showing stuff everyone already knows about.”
That ‘stuff’ includes and . Nothing else is on the E3 agenda.
Just to be sure, someone else from Valvetime sent Gabe a follow-up email, asking if the first one was real. The reply suggests that it is.
