No Valve announcements at E3, studio confirms

Get ready to have your hearts torn out, Valve fans; the famed developer will not, not be announcing anything new at E3 next month.

Boss man Gabe Newell has in an email to fan site ValveTime stated as much with no room for hopes: “We are not announcing anything at E3. Really. We are not announcing Half-Life 3 or Portal 3 or Left 4 Dead 3.”

Another confirmation of sadness comes from Valve’s Doug Lombardi who’s told Joystiq: “We have no product announcements planned for this year’s show.”

Sad panda.

The company will be attending the show, but will be showcasing already-announced products Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, DOTA 2, and Steam’s Big Picture Mode.
