Somebody has finally reached out to Valve following all the rumours about Half-Life 3 and Valve has replied with, “You’re being trolled.”
Chez Faliszek, the writer behind Half-Life, Portal and Left 4 Dead, has sounded out in the Steam Forum saying it is all an elaborate hoax and just “the community trolling the community.” The full post is as below.
“You are being trolled.
There is no ARG.
Wheatley’s speech was set in Portal 2 fiction - that is all.
There has been no directive from Gabe to leak anything. That is all false.
I just want to say this so there is no confusion. This is the community trolling the community nothing more. While it is nice to see people excited about anything HL, I hate seeing people be trolled like this.
Still don’t believe him? Think the whole company’s been told to distract the community? Well, the man behind Valve, Gabe Newell, has also refuted the rumours.
Looks like fans of Half-Life will have to continue waiting for that Episode 3.
