Valve Hopes Next Half-Life Game Comes "A Lot Sooner Than Last Time"


In a recent interview, Half-Life: Alyx developers, Robin Walker and Chris Remo, emphasized how much fun the team at Valve had in creating the game. They went on to explain that the developer would love to tackle more games in the Half-Life universe, and that hopefully it'll happen "a lot sooner than last time."

If you're somehow unfamiliar, the most recent installment in the Half-Life franchise hit shelves over 15 years ago, and fans have been itching for a new game ever since. Now on March 23, that wait will finally end. Although Half-Life: Alyx may be a VR-exclusive game, and is clearly not the Half-Life 3 that fans have been dying to get their hands on, the hype for Alyx is certainly as strong as Valve could have hoped for.

No shit... I'd certainly hope so.

Timesplitters Future Perfect is a better HL game than HL 2.

Shouldnt have wasted that time on vr crap.

I can agree and won't ever be buying the game my self, and I've been a die hard fan of Half Life for a few decades now. VR only is a major slap in the face to Valves original fans, however It is the next step in video games and taking hardware to the next level has always been what half -Life was about.

So I can't exactly blame them.

I legit believe HL2 only happened because Valve figured out the best trojan horse powerplay in the history of entertainment - Steam.

I wouldn't say HL2 necessarily, but there's an argument to be made that the Episodes were certainly a means for Valve to demonstrate to a somewhat sceptical development community that Digital Distribution was a viable option.
