Valve's "Half-Life 3" has stayed under the shadows for the longest time. Some fans may have even delivered false hopes in many ways, including a recent event that took place.

Cologne, Germany was the host of this year's GamesCom 2016, in which multiple surprises were expected to surface. Held at the Koelnmesse expo center, one certain display caught the immediate attention of "Half-Life 3" fans.

According to Kotaku, a large orange banner that had "Half-Life 3" written on it. Interestingly, a follow-up line indicated below had the German words "REDAKTEURE DIE ES DAMALS GESPIELT HABEN."

Oddly, the particular line when translated in English, says "Editors who have played it then." Plainly as it may seem, the supposed line may have not spoken of "Half-Life 3" but instead focused on the editors who managed to get their hands on it, Parent Herald reports.

As great as the news may seem, no apparent confirmation has come from Valve in terms of the said tease. Many believe that all the efforts surrounding the banner is but a troll to make fans even more hyped.

Gabe Newell, Valve's Co-founder, talked of "Half-Life: Episode Three." In a different manner, Valve became quiet when it came to the talk of "Half-Life 3," despite the tease that came about.

Valve has since become quiet around the idea of the third title coming forth. Leaked files, footages and news on "Half-Life 3" that gave out wrong signals are only some of the cliffhangers and unsure feats that the developer denied in the past. "Half-Life 3" is not the only game that fans were deprived of by Valve. Up to this day, "Left 4 Dead 3" is one other title whose certainty needs to be confirmed.
