Valve Employees Want To Create A Full-Scale Half-Life Game
For much of the past decade, one of the most elusive video game franchises has been the Half-Life series. While the third episode of Half-Life 3 has still yet to take form, fans did finally receive some relief with the release of Half-Life: Alyx, bring us all back to the sci-fi world. While the game has been praised for its authentic Half-Life feel, many felt disappointed that the game was only available for VR play, and that it wasn’t a full-scale game. Well, according to one source, it would seem that the Valve employees that worked on Half-Life: Alyx wish to make a full-scale Half-Life game.
Gaming journalism legend and crunchy boi Geoff Keighley has released his Half-Life: Alyx – Final Hours documentary on Steam. In the documentary, Keighley was allowed access to the inner-workings of Valve, much of which occurred during the development of Half-Life: Alyx. During the documentary, the development team behind Half-Life: Alyx seems to reflect their desire to make a new, full-scale Half-Life game. As Valve level designer Phil Co states:
This ice has been broken, now we’re hoping to smash through the ice completely. We’re not afraid of Half-Life no more.”
These Valve employees would hope that with the release of Alyx, that Valve would greenlight a full Half-Life game for traditional PC and console platforms. However, some of these employees have suggested that the team that worked on Alyx might need more resources and employees to accomplish such a feat. Hopefully Valve would grant the wishes of these employees, as well as the multitude of fans, that want to see a return to the series’ traditional roots. This franchise surely has more Half-Life to be Half-Lived.
