Half-Life wowed players when Valve released it in 1998, and fans were just as eager to play its sequel in 2004, but whatever happened to Half-Life 3? This is the only game on the list that hasn’t actually been released yet, or even received an official announcement from Valve. When Half-Life 2 ended on a cliffhanger, players understandably wanted to know what happened next, but Valve never released another Half-Life game.
Until 2020, when Valve revealed Half-Life: Alyx, a new installment in the Half-Life universe. Although the VR title didn’t quite explain the cliffhanger fans have been dangling off of for years, it did breathe new hope back into the fanbase. Could Half-Life 3 happen? After all these years?
As of now, no one really knows. Another Half-Life chapter was in some form of development for years, but there hasn’t been any official announcement of a new game just yet. Rumors say that Valve is working on a new game called Citadel, but no one knows for sure. Valve has stayed busy with Steam, as well as a slew of other games, so for now Half-Life fans will just have to keep waiting.
