As of now, we all believe that there will never be a Half-Life 3 or Portal 3 in the future but that does not mean that the fans won’t get to return to that world ever.
Gabe Newell answered on of his fans question on Reddit about whether there is any chance that there might be a new IP that takes place in the Half-Life and Portal universe and surprisingly, he answered “Yep”.
Of course, this is far from an actual confirmation because the question was “Any chance”. Based on what Valve’s has said in the past, there is a chance for anything to happen but whether or not it will actually happen, that is a whole other story.
Regardless of that, the fact that Gabe Newell thinks that there is a chance is more than enough reason for the fans to get excited. Of course, we won’t be playing Half Life or Portal but we might see your favorite character make a cameo in the game.
We don’t often get good news like this from Valve now but don’t get too excited yet because we still do not know where this is going.
