Will Half-life 3 Ever Happen?

The Half-life series is one of the most legendary video game series ever. Both Half-life 1 & Half-life 2 revolutionised gaming, setting newer and higher standards with each game. Now, more than 13 years after the release of Half-life 2, fans are still chomping at the bit for more of Gordon Freeman’s story.

With such a successful backlog, it seems inevitable that we would eventually see a game that will complete the trilogy, right? Well, no. Not according to an insider at Valve, the studio behind the Half-life series. Apparently, there were teams of up to 30 people working on unnamed projects that could have become Half-life 3, but they were all cancelled.


Ideas for Half-life 3 were numerous, with the idea of a VR exclusive even being tossed around, but nothing ever came of it. Apparently, Gabe Newell, founder of Valve, isn’t keen on reviving the series, making any project impossible to get off the ground.

After so many years, it had become almost impossible to make a Half-life 3. Fans have had 13 years to plan their perfect sequel, it would be impossible to make a game that would live up to the expectations of one of the most loyal fan bases ever.

Maybe we should just appreciate the 2 incredible games we did get, along with the many updates and added features. Half-life and Half-life 2 are both available to buy on Amazon.
