Valve continues to play hide and seek with Half Life series fans who are eagerly awaiting for the third installment in the franchise, Half Life 3. It seems like Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Dev “Neil Druckmann” is also a big fan of Half Life series and is annoyed with the careless behavior of Valve. Recently on Twitter, Neil asked Valve to hand over the license right of Half Life series to Naughty Dog and that’s it, they will take care of the rest.
Neil openly asked Valve: “Look, Valve, all I’m saying is you give us the Half Life license and we’ll take care of the rest”. Valve’s silence on Half Life 3 is killing fans of the franchise. However, we have heard ton of rumors and leaks stating that the third installment in the franchise is indeed in development behind the closed doors at Valve. Back in 2004, Mih Le, creator of Counter Strike and formerly of Valve stated in a video interview to IGN that:
“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. I guess I could say that I did see something that looked kinda like in the Half-Life universe. And I mean it wouldn’t surprise anyone if I said they’re doing it, they’re working on it, yeah. So to go on a limb I’d say I did see some concept art for Half-Life 3.”
Don’t you think it’s indeed a good idea to handover the rights of Half Life series to Naughty Dog and let them develop Half Life 3? Share your opinion with us in the comment section below.
