Half Life 3 Writer Leaks Potential Plot


The Half-Life game franchise is one of the most famous in the world, but we haven’t had a new game launch inside it for what feels like ages now. But it seems that there is still hope for Half-Life 3.  Although it was uncertain whether or not Half-Life 3 was still coming, it seems that it is. Marc Laidlaw, a writer for Half-Life just leaked a possible synopsis for Half-Life 3 on his Pastebin account. Here is what the beginning of said synopsis reads:

“I hope this letter finds you well. I can hear your complaint already, “Gordon Freeman, we have not heard from you in ages!” Well, if you care to hear excuses, I have plenty, the greatest of them being I’ve been in other dimensions and whatnot, unable to reach you by the usual means. This was the case until eighteen months ago, when I experienced a critical change in my circumstances, and was redeposited on these shores.

In the time since, I have been able to think occasionally about how best to describe the intervening years, my years of silence. I do first apologize for the wait, and that done, hasten to finally explain (albeit briefly, quickly, and in very little detail) events following those described in my previous game (referred to herewith as Episode 2).”


But the fact that this synopsis leaked might not necessarily mean that Half-Life 3 will be produced after all. The future of Half-Life 3 is still very much uncertain. Valve seems to focus on other things now, such as e-sports and Steam, so Half-Life 3 doesn’t seem like a priority for the company. Still, we might be in for a surprise. What do you think?

    The synopsis was for Half-Life 2: Episode 3. It was not for Half-Life 3.
