Half-Life 3 is real and it’s in the works right now, a former Valve developer has confirmed.
Speaking in a Twitch interview with goRGNtv, former Valve employee and one of the creators of Counter Strike, Minh Le, has revealed that the Steam owner is currently piecing together the eagerly awaited Half-Life 3, although there is currently no word on when it will launch.
Questioned on the existence of Half-Life 3, Le started off coy before offering a few, more juicy details.
“I don’t think I can talk about that, to be honest, but I think it’s kind of public knowledge that people know that it is being worked on,” he told his interviewers.
The Counter Strike co-founder added: “If I was to say 'yeah, I've seen some images' like some concept art of it that wouldn't be big news.
"I guess I could say that I did see something that could be in the Half-Life universe. I mean it wouldn't surprise anyone if I said yeah they're working on it.
"To go out on a limb, I would say I did see some Half-Life 3 concept art."
Although suggesting that confirmation that Half-Life 3 is in the works is “old news by now,” Valve has yet to formally acknowledge the existence of the game.
As well as revealing that Half-Life 3 is being ‘worked on’, Le also offered some early insight into a “new Left 4 Dead” title which has yet to be confirmed by Valve.
"It wouldn't be any news if I said 'yes, I saw it' and it looks great," Minh said before adding: "I was really excited when I saw that, like 'wow, this looks great’.”
Despite Minh’s insight, it is not yet clear whether or not Half-Life 3 will be showcased during next month’s E3 conference in LA.
