I bet Half Life 3 on a new engine is many years away, even if it ever comes out.

The gaming public love Half Life but 'Gabe' and Valve don't seem to give a shit about it any more.

I would put money on them working on the next gen console versions & distribution models, they have pretty much ignored this console generation but pc gaming is dead for companies that size.

To be fair though, even with HL2, there was little more than rumours until they unveiled it at E3 a few months before intended release (though it did get put back a year or so in the end).

They'll more than likely do the same this time, they don't need to hype it for years, they'll just announce it out of the blue at some point and everyone will shit their knickers in excitement

Valve really fucked up with HL2 though, lying about it's release date when it had zero chance of making it; the stolen source beta code showed how far away from release they actually were.
Even worse they kept that charade up all the way until they didn't make the release date then suddenly said 'oh sorry, we really mean when it's done'.

Don't think they'll do that again, well unless they're really fucking stupid.

Why not? They could have been working on it for years like the original Source.
I seem to remember them churning out shit like CS Condition Zero on the old HL engine right up until HL2 came out.

The lying part certainly not but I suspect the announcement won't be years ahead of planned release.

Just because Valve aren't talking about it doesn't mean it's not being worked on is really what i'm getting at.

True that the absence of evidence isn't evidence of absence.

BUT

If they still gave a shit about Half Life, where is episode 3? Doesn't the lack of episode 3 after all this time prove their disinterest.

Well they've concentrated on getting their cash cow games out the door at the expense of EP3 for sure, but I suppose that could also mean that they just decided to skip it altogether and go to straight to HL3 instead, which would probably create more of a buzz and ultimately money.

Episode 3 ain't happening, Gabe said something like 'our phase with episodic content is over' a while back.

It could, but HL3 is likely to be a whole new arc of the story like HL2 was. Which would mean leaving the HL2 arc unfinished. EP2 ended on a cliffhanger.
