Half Life 3 delay irks enthusiasts


Game enthusiasts are eagerly waiting for the release of the Half-Life 3 as it has been subject to a remarkable delay. Till today, it is still unknown when the game will finally manage to hit the market. The first installment was the game launched in June 2006 with the title ‘Half-Life 2: Episode One’ which is all set to celebrate its ninth anniversary on November 19, 2016.


The followers of the upcoming game are expressing anger and frustration due to the constant delay. The latest report on the game came from Valve’s Gabe Newell who said that it is due to release in June 2016. Reports say that in the said interview Newell did not sound optimistic about the release of Half-Life 3’. However, the rumours which are resurfacing can mean that the release date is getting closer. Newell while discussing about the game plot said that the ‘Half Life 3’ will be split in to three small episodes.
Another report mentioned that the game will be offering full virtual reality support due to claims of HTC and Valve’s partnership involving HTC’s virtual reality headset known as the HTC Vibe. However, the VR plan is still a speculation as HTC has so far not commented on it and Valve has denied such rumours. Some of the leaked rumours say that the ‘Half Life 3’ will feature a Kraken base and pick up the storyline of the ‘Half Life 2’.
Reports also say that the players will have to use submarines and go through underwater terrains. Regular leaks and developments about the game encourage the fans to hold on to the wait. But Valve has stopped sharing updates about the upcoming game. There are also reports that the world will not be able to see the light of the ‘Half Life 3’.
