So what happened to the follow up regarding Half life 2 episode 2? This is a game that I have found to be good but way too long to come to a conclusion. I'm talking about the game in a whole, not just the next episode.
This example from an interview done by Gamespot:
Newell laughed at this, and spoke of Ricochet 2, a title not likely in development, and more believably a code name for Half-Life 3.
"In terms of Ricochet 2, we always have this problem that when we talk about things too far in advance," Newell said, "we end up changing our minds as we're going through and developing stuff, so as we're thinking through the giant story arc which is Ricochet 2, you might get to a point where you're saying something is surprising us in a positive way and something is surprising us in a negative way, and, you know, we'd like to be super transparent about the future of Ricochet 2."
It just sounds like they have no idea as to what direction the story should go. It's a long time to take to create another episodal game or full feature game. Your thoughts
