PC gamers are dying to get their hands on Half-Life 2: Episode 3. That goes without saying. But after E3 passed with absolutely no trace of the game, we had to deal with the fact that it may not be in development yet.
Then the rumor mill decided to give the Episode 3 buzz a bump with this so-called discovery of Half-Life 2: Episode 3 concept art. The picture comes from a Valve fan site, ValveTime.net.
The art is high quality and fits with Half-Life’s style, but it comes from a Facebook page, which makes us think twice about its credibility. Some fans think that these are actually just Half-Life 2 concept art pieces that never made it into Episode 2. Others think that the whole thing may be a hoax.
Regardless of whether or not this art is real, this story has proven one thing: Fans really want to see Half-Life come back, and they are getting tired of waiting. Isn’t it about time for Valve to finally let Gordon Freeman loose on some headcrabs again? We say yes.
