Counter-Strike co-creator Minh Le, who is well know for getting a sneak peek behind the scenes at Valve, has confirmed that both Half-Life 3 and Left 4 Dead 3 are in-development, which shouldn't come as a surprise to many.
According to games.on.net
, Le revealed the juicy info on a Twitch interview
with goRGNtv (skip ahead to 33:55). On the topic of Half-Life 3, Le stated that "there’s like a laser sight on my head right now! I don’t think I can talk about that, to be honest, but I think it’s kind of public knowledge, that people know that it is being worked on.”
“And so if I were to say that yeah, I’ve seen some images, like some concept art of it, that wouldn’t be big news to be honest. But yeah, I mean like I guess I could say that I did see something that looked kinda like in the Half-Life universe. And I mean it wouldn’t surprise anyone if I said they’re doing it, they’re working on it, yeah. So to go on a limb I’d say I did see some concept art for Half-Life 3.”
Later on during the Twitch interview Le joked that "somebody's knocking on my door right now!" The news isn't exactly new either, the public has presumed the Half-Life developer was working on something, though more official confirmation is always a good thing.
In regards to Left 4 Dead 3, Le was rather straight forward, stating that “I saw it, it looks great.” He continued, saying that “I was really excited when I saw that, I was like ‘wow, this looks great’. Because I really enjoyed Left 4 Dead, it was just one of those games that really just changed the industry. I think at the time there wasn’t many good co-op games, so yeah, this is a great co-op game.”
Of course, Valve hasn't officially come out and confirmed either titles, so for now contain yourselves as you wonder just what Gordon Freeman has really been up to on his hiatus.
