It has been more than ten years since the release of "Half-Life 2", but fans are still eagerly awaiting for the rumored release of "Half-Life 3", the next installment in the game franchise. In 2004 when the last game was released, it became an instant hit due to the realistic imageries and realistic game play.

Rumors about the release of "Half-Life 3" started when "DOTA 2" was released with the code title "HLVR". This brought fans to try and decipher the code, which they interpreted that gamers will soon have "Half Life Virtual Reality" in their hands. Some are saying that "HLVR" means that Valve is now developing a new "Half-Life 2" Episode 3.

The science fiction first shooter game "Half-Life 2" was followed by the release of two expansion sequels, which take place immediately after the end of "Half-Life 2". Episode Two involves Gordon Freeman with Alyx Vance going to White Forest Missile Base. There were rumors of "Half-Life 3," but nothing has been released yet.

The first "half-life" game was released in 1998 and many are speculating that in order to commemorate the 20th anniversary of "Half Life", Valve will be releasing "Half-Life 3" in 2018. Reports say that there are speculations regarding the plot for "Half-Life 3".

In the spoilers for "Half-Life 3", Gordon Freeman will meet with Dr. Helena Mossman underwater. The mission will bring him deep underwater, and the game begins when he reaches the Kraken, which is of course found in the deepest part of the ocean.

These are all rumors, speculations, and theories regarding a probable release of "Half-Life 3" in the next two years. Valve, who develops the "Half-Life" games has yet to make a statement on the rumored release.
