Is A Half-Life Announcement Coming At The Game Awards? [VIDEO]

Valve might be dropping a new Half-Life announcement at The Game Awards. Unfortunately, if you started thinking about number three, you should stop immediately.

So a Google document has been leaked, in which PCGamer is being cursed heavily for linking to the document, and they also mention a video at the end – we’ve embedded Valve News Network’s video to appeal to both sides…

So Half-Life 2 has turned 15 on November 16, as the FPS, which required Steam already back then, launched in November 2004, after a major leak in 2003, which made Gabe Newell delay the game and improve it even further. While Valve doesn’t seem to want to do a third game, they seem to plan a VR title, which could be named Half-Life: Alyx. The leaker is the same person that already knew about DOTA Underlords before its announcement and imminent launch.

There’s also an interview portion in the Google doc link that has Geoff (possibly Geoff Keighley, the journalist behind The Game Awards), Robin Walker (co-developer of Team Fortress 2), and an unnamed third person from Valve. Geoff says „March 2020, “Half-Life: Alyx” comin’ out” in the transcript, to which the unnamed person says „I mean we would love to be delivering a version of this that you could play with a mouse and a keyboard, but like as we said, it began as an exploration of VR. You can see their whole body– Respond to the situation. You know, panicking, dropping clips on the ground as they fumble their weapons ’cause a zombie’s in front of them, all these things, they’re just – it’s been really fun watching playtests,” also quoting how the gameplay could work.

Valve previously said that they’d release a „flagship VR game” this year, and if Half-Life: Alyx does come out in March, it would fit into the 2019-20 business year.
