Valve not showing any titles this year

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

Yay again

As always Gay Ben said that we are not getting any teaser of Episode Three this year. It's been 4 years since the release of Episode Two, but we're still far from Episode Three it seems. No titles will be showcased in this years E3, not even Left 4 Dead 3. If Valve does hope to eventually release Episode Three, then they make it good and worth the weight. Hoping for the continuing adventures of Gordon Freeman and the long-awaited revelation of Half-Life 2: Episode Three at this year's E3? Well, hope a little less today. Valve has said it's not bringing any games to this year's expo. "Lots of folks have mailed asking about appointment times with Valve," reads an e-mail from the company. "Well, we are not showing any titles at this year's show. So no appointment is needed." Well, that's kind of a bummer! We were hoping to see at least something from Dota 2, Valve's take on Defense of the Ancients, a game we haven't heard much from lately. But perhaps Valve still has its focus set squarely on the recently released Portal 2 and the game's forthcoming downloadable content pack. Ironically, Duke Nukem Forever is being released before Episode Three. Here is the Sauce.

    jesus valve are so lazy nowadays, they just seem to be concentrating on the games that will get the most popularity and make the most money rather than stick to the franchise which made them.

Don't make me pinch your nipples violently. It's better they take their time to make something awesome, than just rush shit out. Everything they make is always awesome and well worth the wait, and we should all be used to how long it takes them to release stuff by now.

After 5 years in delay, I hope EP3 will be worth the weight. They haven't even released a teaser yet, not even a screenshot. Also, it's an Episode which means it will be about as long as Portal 2 was. Not worth the 7 years it will take them to release it. I also thought Portal 2 co-op and single player should have been longer if they were going to be their own games. Co-op took us like 3 hours to beat, single player takes like 4 or 5 hours, plus I wouldn't say the puzzles were a big brain buster either. The reason everyone likes Valve games is because they are unique and shiny.

    Inb4 Gabe turns up at the Sony stage this year and says the following:

    "Episode 3 has been cancelled and will never be released."
    Crowd rages.
    "On the other hand, Half-Life 3 is coming on quite nicely."
    Everyone creams themselves, there are no survivors.

    I'll bet you any amount of cake that's what will happen, if not this then next year.
    Splat.

    And then you'll find out Half-Life 3 is going to be shorter than EP1.

    I don't think they'll release something with a "3" in the title without making a new engine,unless they're working on a new Source engine,out of the public's notice.

    Might be Half-Life 3 as well. There was something about dropping Episode 3 and bringing Half-Life 3. And we know DotA2 comes out this year. Counter-Strike might come too, but on next year. Oh, and Valve might surprise us during other event like they did last year.

    @Haxorfox I still don't get that. Why go to a new story line? EP3 will be the end of the HL2 story arc; don't we want to see how it ends? On topic: You say it will be worth the "weight", Reaper? A fat joke a day keeps episode 3 away, you know!
    Well, maybe the bread. Maybe.

It doesn't keep something that hasn't even started development away.

    I'm staring to belive that they don't work on EP3 officially. I guess they work rather on Half Life 3 with an included prequel to Episode 2. I mean as Reaper said: 5 years delay! And all we've got from Valve is Portal 2 and a messed up replay feature in TF2 (does not mean that Portal 2 is bad in any way, but the TF2 part does).

    Disappointing, they said that they were going to show three new titles this year. 1. DOTA 2 2. Portal 2 ...
