Marc Laidlaw's "Epistle 3"

Recommended Posts

Marc Laidlaw is one of the writers behind the story of Half Life, and retired from Valve about a year and a half ago. Several hours ago, on his personal blog, he posted what seems to be his summary of Half Life 3. He doesn't go into great detail, and changes many of the big names in the story. To a lot of fans in the Steam/Valve community this is being seen as the final nail in the coffin for the beloved Half Life series. Below I've linked to the original blog as well as the version with corrected names seen in the Half Life series. Do you guys think we'll ever get a follow up to Half Life?

not anytime soon, that's for sure. 


perhaps some dev company down the road will be reminded of the game's impact and legacy, and they will try and reboot the IP. Epistle 3 sounds like a decent script, and hopefully they follow it instead of doing something completely different.


Episode 3 will be nowhere as near as good as people will expect it to be, simply because so much time has passed and the expectations have been raised so significantly, thanks valve

Too much time has passed with too much hype. Maybe another will pick it up, one day, but it would have to be one dedicated to Valve's craft or it would just feel like a cheap reboot/cash grab.
