Half Life 3 Valve April Fools

In news that comes with a complimentary 10kg hessian sack of sodium chloride, an anonymous source “close to Valve” has told a Greek website a whole bunch of “confidential details” about Half-Life 3.

A charmingly quirky Google translation of the article reveals that the game “will always be a very action-oriented, but with many RPG elements: open-world, quests and NPCs will be waiting for you”.

Somewhat more credibly, the game’s development has apparently been “very chaotic”, including “revisions total gameplay”, and will only launch “after 2013″, but everybody pretty much knew that already.

Current trends in Half-Life 3 Delay Theory posit that the game’s ongoing no-show is partly due to the development of Valve’s next-gen Source engine, which is consistent with those last few claims. Or Valve just likes making people wait.
