Although this report has yet to be confirmed by the company, several fans are saying that production will most likely start next year as Valve are preparing to make an official announcement anytime soon.

Nonetheless, these reports could be just another rumor with no real basis to continue rallying to get the game developer into creating "Half-Life 3." However, fans have remained positive and hope for Valve to announce the game early next year.

In another report, GruffBarbarian, a Half-Life subreddit user, has recently posted an image that appears to be a fan-made poster of "Half-Life 3." The image was supposedly uploaded to send a clear message to Valve that fans would want to see "Half-Life 3" more so than the list of titles in "Games That Deserve a Sequel" award for Steam Awards.

As of the moment, the company has yet to pick the best title for the award category; however, fans are confident that Valve will choose "Half-Life 3" and make use of the event to release the official announcement.
