The lights are on
Valve writer Chet Faliszek says fans are being "trolled" by their own community regarding the on-going speculation that the studio may soon announce Half Life 3.
Faliszek refers to the recent VGA appearance of Wheatley from Portal 2, where fans believed the video shown at the awards show contains Half Life 3 clues. "There is no ARG. Wheatley's speech was set in Portal 2 fiction - that is all," he said on the official Steam forums.
"I just want to say this so there is no confusion. This is the community trolling the community nothing more. While it is nice to see people excited about anything [Half Life], I hate seeing people be trolled like this."
So it looks like fans will continue to wait for news. Hey, if you got some extra time on your hands, you can always go up to Valve and protest outside their offices for a free lunch.
