Speaking to AusGamers, Valve’s Doug Lombardi has reiterated that the esteemed studio are “not done with Gordon Freeman’s adventures.” Fans of Half-Life 2 have been left waiting for the next chapter of the bearded scientist’s struggle against the Combine, with 2007’s Episode II ending bleakly while also setting up The Freeman’s next – and final – challenge. Since then? Nada.
Valve do have a history of dropping bombshells at E3, however. Just recall last year’s Portal 2 media frenzy. Could we see the crowbar reappear on stage in a few months? Anything is possible.
