It has been 12 years since the second installment of "Half Life" was launched. Since then, Valve hasn't released any official announcements whether or not there will be an upcoming second sequel of the popular game franchise. But, recent reports suggest that Valve might be working on "Half Life 3" secretly.

According to a report from NeuroGadget, there are few hints that "Half Life 3" is currently in the works. Reports say that there was a recent update in DOTA2 that contains a code "HLVR." This simple piece of code might actually mean Half Life Virtual Reality. If the rumors are true, the upcoming "Half Life 3" might be having a Virtual Reality support.

"Half Life 3" with virtual reality might actually be true because of the recent reports confirmed the companies HTC and Valve might be working together to create a new VR headset for "Half Life." According to Express, at the last MWC (Mobile World Congress) Cher Wang, HTC's chairwoman confirmed that they are co-operating with "Half Life," but the chairwoman didn't specify if it was the "Half Life 3."

The original "Half Life" was launched way back in 1998 for windows PC. There are rumors saying the "Half Life 3" might be released on year 2018 to celebrate the 20th year anniversary of the game. Rumor says that it will take a few more years for Valve to complete the "Half Life 3" because of the games' new features and improvements that will totally shock fans.

However, even if there is no confirmation made by Valve, there are already rumors and speculations circulating about the "Half Life 3" storyline. Rumor says that Gordon Freeman will remain the main protagonist of the game. His main mission is to find the missing Doctor Helena Mossman that might be located in an underwater laboratory.
