Half-Life: Alyx’s G-Man Leaves Ominous New Year’s Message (VIDEO)
Despite happening in the tail end of 2019, the reveal of Valve’s new Half-Life: Alyx project was undoubtedly one of the most significant announcements of the year. It not only marked the studio’s return to game development, but also a resurgence of the long-dormant Half-Life franchise, which has sat incomplete for well over a decade. As teased in the title’s gameplay reveal, Alyx will also see the return of the enigmatic character G-Man, who has now left fans a haunting new message over social media.
Posted by the character’s storied voice actor Mike Shapiro, the series’ mysterious suited figure is now back to both frustrate and creep out players with an extradimensional supply of unnerving delivery. The clip, which, playable in the video below, teases a “consequential” adventure in store for fans in 2020, with G-Man promising to “see you in the new year.”

Should old acquaintances be forgot… Well, after so much… time… some things can prove difficult to remember. See you in the new year. And do prepare for… consequences, hmm?”
Though there’s still so much is left unknown about Half-Life: Alyx, the VR project continues to be bursting with possibility and opportunity. Valve has iterated how Alyx fits into the Half-Life universe in the past, as well as how the series could eventually come back to traditional installments when all is said and done. Wherever this new installment takes us, Valve appears to be holding details very close to the vest until we get that much closer to the game’s upcoming March launch.
Half-Life: Alyx is set to release for PC in March 2020.
