A new Half-Life: Alyx documentary details the game’s development and the team’s hopes to continue the series on ‘traditional’ formats.
A few years ago, any hope of a new Half-Life game seemed almost laughable, but the release of VR game Half-Life: Alyx showed that the series still has life left in it and Valve hasn’t completely abandoned it.
In the run up to its release, Valve did state that the series would continue, which revitalised the hope for a Half-Life 3.
Now, the Half-Life: Alyx team has expressed hope that they’ll get to make another entry in the series, though not necessarily a sequel to Alyx.
This comes from an interactive book/documentary about Half-Life: Alyx’s development called Half-Life: Alyx – Final Hours, written by Geoff Keighley of The Game Awards fame.
It can be bought on Steam for just over £7 and, as reported on by Gamesindustry.biz, Valve designer Phil Co expresses confidence in the series’ future, suggesting that we can most definitely expect more Half-Life games.
‘This ice has been broken, now we’re hoping to smash through the ice completely,’ he says, ‘We’re not afraid of Half-Life no more.’
As for the team, it hopes that Valve will give them the go-ahead to make a proper, full-scale game for traditional platforms.
Apparently, according to the documentary, Valve had, at one point, begun work on Half-Life 3, though this was obviously nixed before it went anywhere, so a concept for the sequel does, or did, exist.
However, the team also expressed uncertainty over whether Valve has the personnel needed for such a project.
But whether it’s Half-Life 3 or not, it’s looking likely that fans will have something to look forward to in the future.
Half-Life: Alyx is available now on PC.
