Half-Life 4 added to the SteamDB for Linux!

By - | Views: 12,058
That's right, you heard it here first folks, Half-Life 4 has been added to the SteamDB! It includes hints of others things too.


It seems to only list Linux, no sign of Mac or Windows so could it even be a Linux exclusive?

It also gives subtle hints at Steambox and Source Engine 2 as well in the "Depots" section:
QuoteSource 2 SteamBox Binaries
Source 2 Linux Binaries

We don't yet have too much information on this so I will update you as it comes, pretty big news though since Half Life is one of the most popular games to ever grace this earth!

We don't even have Half Life 2 yet so hopefully they will work on this shortly to not make a gap in the game series for us!

Please Note: This is 100% not serious and is of course a Valve April Fools joke, just look at the icon, it's GabeN's face! ;)
It's also possible it's not Valve at all but the SteamDB folks playing with us ;)

The stuff in the Additional Information give it away

So it's likely just a joke...

I'm sorry, but not funny. Been waiting for a new game in the HL series for a long time, got my hopes up and died a little inside :(
