Valve currently has its hands full with the $10 million marketing campaign to support Left 4 Dead but that doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten about the Combine and our favorite nuclear physicists Gordon Freeman. Kikizo interviewed Valve’s Doug Lombardi about Left 4 Dead, but managed to sneak in a question regarding the whereabouts of Half-Life: Episode 3.
When asked when would we see anything from the game Lombardi replied we would have to wait longer than it took for Valve to release Episode 1 and 2 after Half-Life 2 . So that basically means more than 3 years of waiting since 2007. The good news is that Lombardi also said Valve may release some information about Episode 3, “at the very end of the year.”
