If Episode 3 doesn't release in 2010, I'm almost certain it'll be HL3 that releases in 2011.

Wouldnt surprise me. Valve have given the impression this will have a longer development and play time than the previous two episodes.

Im not really bothered in the end. I'm someone who still thinks HL2 and the episodes are some of the best games ever made, and while I'd love Episode 3 now I know when I do get it it will blow me away.

Valve have always worked on their own Valve-time.
I'm kind of disappointed if this turns out to be true, though.

They pushed L4D2 out in, what, a little over a year. And production on Episode 3 started before Episode 2 was finished. It better be full game length if it's going to take them over three years to finish it.

Hm....so if it's released in 2011, it'll be a 4-5 year development.
Crazy, when you think about it.

It's only a rumour.

But it wouldn't surprise me if it was true.
They can take as long as they want with it, I'd just like to hear something at this point.

Its just a rumor. I actually hope they just come out with a full game. Half Life 3 would be sweet. But I know they said they were going to wrap things up with EP3. Well again, this is just a rumor.

I'd don't get why people say the episodes weren't "full" games. Sure they're a lot shorter than HL2 but to me they were full gaming experiences and only a little shorter sometimes longer than most AAA games (not that the episodes weren't AAA but you get what I mean).

I don't think they'll call it Half-Life 3, they've said a few times that the episodes are hl3. The way I see it is it'll just be a longer experience than the previous episodes, with of course some pretty major upgrades to source.

I wonder if the cause of the delay is issues with the story/script. I mean episode 3 is supposed to be the big finale for this story arc so it's crucial that they get this just right, it must be a huge undertaking, how do they end it ? how much do they reveal ?
It also could be some technical hurdles that they need to overcome with source, in fact its probably both of those combined

One thing that does bother me is the longer they make me wait, the more I expect from them.

*sniff* I really hope they bring out Ep3 this year but for some reason it wouldn't suprise me if that didn't happen.

I'm a very sad panda.
