Valve expects Half Life 3 on Steam Greenlight

by Bill Hess on August 5, 2012


Valve’s new Steam Greenlight project will empower the community to pick the next games to arrive on Steam. Developers will be able to distribute game assets to the community, and build buzz for their projects before releasing them for sale on the marketplace. This weekend at Quake Con, Valve’s Chet Faliszek was part of a panel discussing mods, and was asked whether or not Source mods would be valid projects to be accepted into the Greenlight program.

“Obviously there are some legal issues there and stuff,” said Faliszek. “I definitely know that we want to make it where we’re not putting up a barrier or judgment. So, I think its going to be interesting once it’s opened up, what people submit. I imagine that they’re going to submit Half Life 3, and we will all laugh heartily at that. But you know, it’s going to be interesting to see what people submit and we’re going to learn alot from that.”

So while you may not see Half Life 3 from Valve for some time to come, the Steam Greenlight project just might bring fan-made visions of the long awaited title to life in the near future.

    I don’t mean to gripe (well, I’m gonna anyways), but the title of this article is pushing it. “Valve expects Half Life 3 on Steam Greenlight”?? No where within the information provided in this piece does it confirm that. At most it speculates that Greenlight “just might bring fan-made visions of the long awaited title to life in the near future”. Fan-made visions? In other words, MODS made by the community MAY end up on Greenlight, that MAY be INTERPRETATIONS of what they think HL3 will resemble. That’s a VERY far stretch from saying out-right that, “Valve expects Half Life 3 on Steam Greenlight”… come on guys.

    I do appreciate the information that this article had (like quotes from Chet F.) but please don’t use a clearly false and misleading title just to get hits. It’s just frustrating for all us fans who avidly search for and find any all HL3 news. Thanks for listening to my criticism.

      Chet: “I imagine that they’re going to submit Half Life 3″

    Yeah. I think a better title for the article would be “Valve expects fake half life 3s on greenlight”
