So according to Uncle Gabe, Valve are going to go back to developing games, possibly for new hardware.


GabeNSpeaking at the press presentation for Valve's latest, Artifact, Newell said: "Artifact is the first of several games that are going to be coming from us, so that’s sort of good news. Hurray! Valve is going to start shipping games again."

I wonder what this means for Valve? Hopefully Half Life 3 is revived, although likely with a heavily revised story. Could they re-hire some old hands? Or is this a different direction and new game IPs?

I'll believe that when I see it.


And a fancy card game doesn't count IMO.

Aye, I was disappointed to learn it was just a card game.


I want Half Life 3 damnit.

To be honest, as much as I hope they mean new IPs, I'm afraid they just mean they're going to start shipping Artifact and then maybe release a Left 4 Dead 3. Even if they do dive into a new IP, I fear the market has left Valve behind. 


... Or at least fix the darn UI for Steam. Please.

I might not be too upset with L4D3 as L4D2 was amazing but at this point, I don't even want Half Life 3 Episode whatever as it'll be impossible to live up to the hype.


New IP I'm ok with.


Maybe even more Portal I am ok with.

Essentially my view. Though I was never a big fan of Valve games to begin with, I do admit Left for Dead is great series.

More Portal is good.

More puzzle games would be good. I doubt for either HL3, LFD3, Dota3, TF3 or Portal 3.
