Half-Life 3 can be created, but it will rather be removed. A well-known insider explains the situation with the following games in the Steam Deck universe, as well as another VR headset.
Tyler McVicker is one of Valve’s most trusted and respected insiders.
Half-Life 3 is
not in development
If you’re curious about what’s going on at Valve, you’ve probably already come across leaks directly from Tyler McVeeker, a knowledgeable insider for some of the most secretive developers out there. In the last video, he decided to convey new revelations regarding the future of the company.
Let’s start with the most important thing, namely with the answer to the question “what is happening with Half-Life 3 and when will it be released?” The point is not so simple. Insider notes that Valve is not currently working on a troika or any full-fledged sequel to the series. However, he points out that it is very possible that a very small design team is working on an HL3 concept that is likely not to be seen by management as “generating any value.” So there are many indications that while not many people have been delegated to work on the game, there is at least a small group that is trying to push the project through. It should be noted that similar situations have been repeated many times in recent years. So it doesn’t reflect the possible HL3 announcement very well.
Valve is most focused on its next hit, Steam Deck. The small console has generated more interest than anyone thought, so most of the company is working on hardware and software for it. It also means that the alleged Citadel Project, which was once made for VR, will be a showcase for Dec’s abilities. The project should be a hybrid of FPS and RTS, built into the HL universe. A large team was involved in the work. This means that there are no more than two years left until the prime minister.
Other information – Valve has lost interest in the VR segment. Half-Life Alyx (although undoubtedly great) didn’t beat the PC VR roar company. Facebook and their Oculus are cheap, easy to use, and will get new names on a regular basis. Valve doesn’t want to fight them, so he probably gave up. This is also evidenced by the fact that some employees are moving to other companies to focus on the VR market.
