Rumor: No New Half-Life in 2010

While Half-Life developer Valve has remained rather quiet as to when series star Gordon Freeman will continue his crowbar-wielding antics, a rumor currently making the rounds claims that it won't be this year.

"Loose Talk has learned that there won't be any game from the franchise in 2010, and what will finally come out is still unknown," reads the self-proclaimed "rumors and scuttlebutt" column in the February 2010 issue of Game Informer. "Will it be Half-Life 2: Episode Three? Or will it be a full-on Half-Life 3?"

The last Half-Life entry, Half-Life 2: Episode Two, arrived in October 2007. Since then, Valve has described Episode Three--the final entry in the Half-Life 2: Episode trilogy--as "a more ambitious project" and teased "the next time you play as Gordon will be longer than the distance between Half-Life 2 to Episode One, and Episode One to Episode Two," later telling Shacknews "Freeman's not done...stay tuned for more."
