Ok. Cut me a bit of slack here. I know that we constantly go on about Half Life 3, and if it’s real or not…but I think we might have finally found proof that it is, indeed, real…and that’s it going to be at Gamescom.
A recent document was found on the official Gamescom website: a PDF file listing every game that is on show at Gamescom. All the usual suspects are there: Black Ops 2, Assassin’s Creed III…and when we scroll down to the bottom, listed under ‘Valve’…Half Life 3. Now then. This could be some kind of a joke. But I honestly don’t think it is. No offence to Gamescom, but it’s not the most tongue-in-cheek gaming event in the world (that award goes to PAX). So. Valve might seriously be exhibiting Half Life 3 at Gamescom. We can’t know for certain until tomorrow, when the showfloor opens, but this could very well be the moment we’ve all been waiting for.
