‘Half Life 3’ Still Not Confirmed; Upcoming ‘Lost Squad’ Game Based On ‘Half Life 2’

Rumors about “Half Life 3” has been going around for quite some time now. However, Valve hasn’t confirmed yet if this game is pushing through or not.

The rumours stopped and gave fans somewhat a form of confirmation when a logo for “Half Life 3” resurfaced on the Internet. This put their assumptions at rest. However, developers are still keeping mum on the subject of this particular role-playing game.

To somehow satiate the thirst for “Half Life,” a game is set to be released that is based on “Half Life 2.” The “Lost Squad” is a fan-made Source Engine RPG and it will follow the events after Episode One. Its plot will revolve after Barney Calhoun left City 17’s train station. As the game plot thickens, Barney will have to fight Combine and bring something back to Dr. Gordon Freeman. It will also explain his absence in Episode Two.

Meanwhile, no date has been announced for the release of “Lost Squad.”

Fans have been eagerly anticipating the next chapter of “Half Life” and even asked Valve’s writer Marc Laidlaw for publishing it as a book or a comic. Laidlaw answered that the story was created in the process of work to make the best use of the engine’s features within the interesting set of constraints it poses and developed while solving the problems to make it a fun game. The story is part of the game and doesn’t exist as a separate script that is handed off to game designers that they are expected to make compelling through puzzles and combat.

That being said, it’s still going to be a long wait for “Half Life 3” and still, there is still the uncertainty that lingers: Is there really going to be a third part of the game?
