Announcement: Valve Has No E3 Announcements
Over on ValveTime, a forum user going by the handle Tabernumse, has supplied an e-mail he got from Gabe Newell, the big boss over at Valve. He writes,
“Dear Gabe. If you announced Half-Life 3 at E3, I will literally attach a valve to my eyeball, and go around with it for a year, to honor the awesomeness of you and your company.
Thank you. That is all.”
Somehow, Gabe was not enticed by this proposition, and replied thusly:
“We are not announcing anything at E3. Really. We are not announcing Half-Life 3 or Portal 3 or Left 4 Dead 3. We are going to be showing stuff already knows about (CS:Go, Dota 2, 10’UI,…).”
And just in case that wasn’t confirmation enough that Valve wasn’t going to be blowing your mind at E3, ValveTime went ahead and asked Newell himself, asking if the e-mail that was sent to them was actually real.
“Yes, it’s real.”
So there you go. No surprise announcements about the third installment in anything of anything ever.
Unless, of course, this is all just to throw us off the trail! ZOMG!
