Well, the Valve rumours are firing again. The thoughts are, once more, that this E3 could see the surprise announcement of Half-Life 2: Episode Three, or even, the forum chatter likes to think, Half-Life 3. Of course we’ve been here before. This time there’s this image floating around, although I’ve yet to track down whether it’s sourced from Valve, which reveals the ghostly face of one G-Man at the bottom of what might be a flyer. It could be another fake. It might be real. Look, I don’t know. As soon as it’s confirmed either way I’ll update, and then get angry emails.
Edit: A mysterious man in a black cloak and hat just snuck up to me and whispered in my ear: “This is fake.” Ah well.
It comes from the Twitter account of Danny Pena, founder of Gamertag Radio. And rather brilliantly barely features the haunting face of our favourite anonymous baddie. Oh, and of course the word “Freeman”. And June 14 would be during E3. But then, I’d put those details in if I were faking, too. We’re chasing sources, passing wads of cash in dark alleys, and getting our team of street urchins to pick all the right pockets, to see if there’s any truth in this. Cheers to Rory for tipping us off.
Here’s the image:
