    Marc Laidlaw (former Valve employee) posted a slightly modified version of what HL2EP3 was going to be, as apparently the NDA for it (started in 2007, 10 YEARS AGO) has expired.

    It's dead.

    Imagine having your game be in development hell for so long the NDA on it ends and you can just post the entire plot of it online.

    Yikes.

    I'm still convinced that eventually someone will make another Half Life game thats a new story. It sure as hell won't be Valve though.

    I find that difficult to believe since as far as I am aware Valve own Half-Life - so unless they sell the rights any attempt on such a game will end in a lawsuit.
