Did Valve show off Half Life 3 at GDC in the last day or so? A series of subtle and not so subtle Tweets point to something rather tasty being demonstrated, and if it’s not the long-awaited next title in the rather superb first person shooter series, it’s likely to be something closely related.
Picked up by PixelEnemy [source], the first hints come from DICE’s David Goldfarb, lead designer on Battlefield 3. He said he’d seen “something nice” from the developer behind closed doors, to which Marcus Persson, inventor of Minecraft, replied back asking if it was Half Life 3.
“My silence must be interpreted as silence” replied Goldfarb; “Reply to this tweet if hl3 is confirmed,” added Persson. “I will show my answer with some interpretive dance,” said Goldfarb, as if to confirm without confirming. “Look closely.”
More? How about Interceptor Entertainment’s Dave Oshry. “Just got out of a meeting with Valve that was single-handedly worth the trip out here,” he said on Twitter. “You guys are gonna love me for this” – before hinting that a reveal might be “soon”.
Could this mean there’s something coming at E3, or even closer? Half Life 3 has been one of those games that everyone really wants but nobody knows anything about. It’s likely to come with that fabled Source engine update, if this is anything to do with Gordon Freeman…
