A supposed teaser site for Half-Life 3 appeared today, popping up on a site calling itself Black Aperture. The site displays only a Half-Life 3 logo, and Valve’s trademark information, as well as a link to the Orange Box site. It’s registered to a David Hassen through Network Solutions, and that’s all we know.
Also, there’s a 99% chance that it’s complete bunk.
It’s just not Valve’s style to blatantly toss up a logo with a bunch of legal disclaimers. For a game like Half-Life 3, there’s no way fans won’t be made to jump through hoops before they get that sweet, sweet confirmation. In any case, this site is already doing the rounds and we’re going to get a dozen tips about it, so here’s your article and a liberal dose of cynicism. Enjoy it!
