Half-Life 3 is an open world shooter and will launch in 2013, according to a new report.
Journaldugamer (via VG247) spoke to a source who claims that Half-Life 3 features a ?total revision? following a ?very chaotic? development schedule.
Apparently the game was developer as a straight-up shooter but the source suggests that ?failed,? so Valve decided to go in a different direction; one that involves puzzles and exploration. In addition, the source also claims Half-Life 3 will have a ?open-world, quests and NPCs.?
Half-Life 3, which will be a full game in its own right, rather than a new episode, is said to be on course for 2013, although formats have not been mentioned. We remain sceptical regarding this news, although Valve have teased that Half-Life 3 will eventually arrive.
Could it be a launch title for one of the new as-yet-unannounced consoles from Sony or MS? If it's real, it'll definitely arrive on PC, you can be sure of that.
