Warm up that cup of speculation, as it appears Valve are working on another game that seems to be going by the name of Citadel (likely a code name).

Linking into Half-Life, since the Citadel is the HQ from where the Combine govern Earth. Apparently though, this is entirely separate to the unannounced Half-Life VR game with Citadel being a completely different Source 2 project. As always though, do not take this as any form of confirmation. You can see the video from Valve News Network below which is quite interesting:

I've no doubt that all the "leaks" that end up shipping with Valve games are completely intentional. They probably love seeing everyone try to guess what it's going to be.

Will it be Half-Life 3? Probably not. Considering everything talked about in the video, it sounds like some sort of top-down game, possibly including some stealth elements. However, Valve are supposed to be launching a flagship VR game this year, which is likely Half-Life VR.

liamdaweSo what we've learned is that mods are awesome ;)
tbf I wonder how modding would look nowadays without Half-Life back then. That modding support and scene, that evolved around it, was unseen before.

So yeah.. Valve understood this. Back then at least.

Not quite "unseen" before.
The DOOM modding community was a pretty damn big and healthy one, and is still active even today.

Though yes, HL is among the top of the most important games in regards to modding history.
So are games like Skyrim, even tho Bethesda proved they don't understand it very well (or that their greed blinds them and makes then not want to understand it)

At least Valve was pretty cool.
I am actually very happy when mods develop into actual games. I think it just stays as a testament to how awesome the idea is. And many developers did learn from this, that the will of their customers is indeed worth hearing. Not all of them, and less so within the AAA space, but many indie devs were inspired by mods, or were modders themselves.

And then you also have occurances like the modern Age of Empires 2 DLCs (and the game remake) which is done mostly my ex-modders of the original games. Which is pretty damn cool in my opinion. Sure, Microsoft might be unpopular in our community, but they did recognise the potential of its games modding scene and invested in it.
