Half-Life3 is, fa­mously, the games in­dus­try’s an­swer to the Loch Ness mon­ster or Big­foot. If you ever see a flock of pigs fly­ing past your win­dow, that may well be the sig­ni­fier that Valve is fi­nally ready to re­lease it. But in the cur­rent po­lit­i­cal cli­mate, frankly, the Apoc­a­lypse is likely to take place first. Eleven years have now passed since Half-Life2: Episode 2 was re­leased and ev­ery­one pre­sumed (wrongly) that Valve was start­ing work on Half-Life3. To be fair, we did get two puz­zle-cen­tric spin-offs from the ma­jes­tic alien-themed first-per­son shooter, in the shape of Por­tal and Por­tal2. Per­haps Por­tal3 and Half-Life3 will come out si­mul­ta­ne­ously? Don’t hold your breath.
