‘Half-Life 3’ Release Date, Latest News & Updates: Valve, HTC Collaboration A Cover Up?

“Half-Life 3” continues to keep gamers in waiting and Valve has yet to come up with anything folks can hold on to. The closest to a potential sequel was that dish from hardware engineer Alan Yate who claimed that there is a small AR/VR research team tied up to the famed first-person shooter game.

A lot of this was covered in a previous post with nothing picking up so far. However, there are new rumors suggesting that a collaboration between Valve and HTC could be viewed as something to hold on to, which immediately brings up the possibility of virtual reality integration in "Half-Life 3".

HTC chief Cher Wang did mention in March 2015 that they were working with Valve for some type of “Half-Life” game. She, however, quickly straightened things out by claiming that while it is true they were in collaboration with Valve, it was not necessarily limited to "Half-Life 3", BBC reported.

Just the same, many may consider Wang’s backtracking statements as a possible way to waylay expectations on a possible virtual reality “Half-Life 3” coming. Either way, it is best to set hopes at a minimum for now as Valve is likely weighing in on the progress of VR in the gaming sector.

With or without virtual reality added to “Half-Life 3”, the rumor mill is still abuzz considering the game will be celebrating its 20th year in 2018, Neurogadget reported. That said, gamers feel that Valve would be releasing something special tied up to the first-person shooter game.

Leaked game codes tied up to “Half-Life 3” were spotted recently and such created some noise as one would expect. But like other games, there is no assurance that these codes would be hints of things to come or better yet, activated in the event a third installment does come out.
