'Half Life 3' News Update: Game Installment Discontinued?By Anita V, UniversityHerald Reporter
Half Life 3 has been played since 1998. After the rumors of its new installment being developed; fans have to be satisfied with a disappointing possibility that there could be no Half Life 3.
It takes two to Tango. Given the fact that talented designer, Marc Laidlaw, refused to continue working with the team; Valve as a game developer would need to find another talent that fits the position. That might need to have the same passion as Laidlaw in first place.
Many have questioned the future of their favorite shooter video game. Twitter has taken it seriously with the presence of an account dedicated to the Half Life 3 updates - the 'Half Life 3 Out Yet'.

The News Independent published an article on Half Life 3 said that it could be switching to VR platform.
