You are being trolled.

There is no ARG.

Wheatley’s speech was set in Portal 2 fiction – that is all.

There has been no directive from Gabe to leak anything. That is all false.

I just want to say this so there is no confusion. This is the community trolling the community nothing more. While it is nice to see people excited about anything HL, I hate seeing people be trolled like this.

Thanks

RIDICULOUS THEORY TIME

Half-Life is an FPS series.
Who makes FPSes? id Software, that’s who. What games did they make?
Quake. How many sequels did Quake have? At least 3.
Another FPS by the same company is Doom. Doom has 3 sequels.
And finally, their oldest franchise is Wolfenstein 3D. Wolfeinstein had… You guessed it, 3 sequels.

3 FPSes with 3 sequels.
Too much to be a coincidence.

Yes.

Also, by contract, Valve is going to develop a sequel to RAGE.

What am I, a psychic?
I can only predict what’s in front of me, and what’s in front of me is evidence that id will produce Half-Life 3!

3 × 3 = 9.

9 + 1 = 10.

10 – 3 = 7

7 is a prominent number with Bungie Studios.

TOTALLY SOMETHING UP, THERE.

By the way, it says ‘8566’ I think.

The numbers, if I may be so bold, are in the file name:

857314CYI55.jpg

Hell if I know what any of that means. Combing through the HTML didn’t show anything, though there’s no way I’m the first one to think to do that.

Tried changing the letters to numbers – C = 3, Y = 25, I = 9, then dividing the big number by 3.

857314325955 / 3 = 285771441985

1985? At least that’s a year. Not sure if that means anything.

Numbers to letters?

HEGCADCYIEE. ANyone here better than me at cryptography?

Edit @DoctorHobo, below

Regardless of if it has anything to do with HL3 it’s certainly interesting.

Guy’s i know. HL3 is never going to come out and were all stupid for thinking it will. Because valve doesn’t care as long as you and your friends are out buying hats for TF2 or playing L4D2.

So valve has been making Half life 3 for years now without leaking any info to the press, all of the “legit” things users are finding in their content is pure coincidence and is good for valve because it is making paranoid hype.

Then suddenly, without telling anyone, valve will release half life 3 on black friday THIS year to see how many people freak out

Even if it did get released,it still have chance to end up like DNF.
Just saying.

Does anyone have any theories as to WHY Half-Life has been abandoned? It doesn’t make financial sense to me. Did Gabe not like the project or something?
