Valve Addresses Half-Life 3 Reports and Citadel Leaks

Valve has directly addressed recent reports and rumours surrounding the supposed development (or lack thereof) of Half-Life 3 and the company’s upcoming shooter-strategy game called Citadel. The reports were brought to light by Valve News Network’s Tyler McVicker, but now it looks like Valve has shot down any of his claims, suggesting fans treat it with skepticism.

In a statement provided to IGN, Valve addressed McVicker’s recent reports about Half-Life 3 not being in development at the company, and talk of a new Steam Deck showcase title called Citadel.

While they didn’t outright confirm or deny his claims, they simply responded “any important announcements on projects that we are or aren’t working on will come directly from us.”

Valve’s full statement reads:

“It’s good to view [Valve News Network content creator Tyler McVicker’s] coverage with a healthy dose of skepticism. We think it’s important to reiterate that while Tyler is a passionate gamer, he has no inside information about what goes on at Valve. As you know, any important announcements on projects that we are or aren’t working on will come directly from us.”

Valve is once again being quite cryptic about Half-Life 3 and it isn’t the first time. Of course, McVicker’s claims, according to Reddit, were based on datamines and not necessarily being an insider at the company. As such, fans should take anything reported on thus far as speculation and rumours unless it comes directly from Valve.

The continuation of the Half-Life series has always been highly requested by the gaming community, to the point where it became a well-documented internet legend and meme. Any mention of Half-Life 3 is usually at the end of a joke, but given Valve’s push into games development again, fans have remained hopeful that one of their new projects will be the long-awaited sequel.
