Valve on Half-Life 3 rumors: You're being trolled photo



Ever since obsessed fans pulled apart a video of Wheatley at the Spike Videogame Awards, rumors concerning Half-Life 3 have run rampant. While the community is expecting an imminent announcement, Valve writer Chet Faliszek has arrived to crush your dreams -- none of the rumors are true, and you're all being trolled.

"You are being trolled. There is no ARG," he said. "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."

Fans reckon that Valve has been up to its "alternate reality game" shenanigans with fans, dropping subtle clues in the lead up to a Half-Life 3 reveal. It would appear, however, that the fans are doing what Victorians did when the War of the Worlds radio play was broadcast -- swearing they can smell the Martian smoke that doesn't exist and whipping themselves into hysteria.

Or ... is that what Valve wants us to think? WE MUST CONTINUE TO SPECULATE!

Did you get in on the Destiny beta? I did, but only after access was opened to all. Managed to play for about an hour which, after the cut scenes and loading, wasn't enough time for me to get a true sense of how I feel about ...more
