‘Half-Life 3’ added to Steam Database. But I ain’t getting excited

Half-Life 3 has been added to the Steam Database. Some will interpret this as a signal that the much-anticipated third title in the series is coming. I’m choosing to interpret it in pretty much any other way, since I don’t want to get my hopes up.

Comic Book:

Fan who have been waiting years for Valve to release Half-Life 3 may have just received a glimmer of hope. The Steam Database website reports to have found a list of packages recently added to the distribution platform’s system, and Half-Life 3 is among the game titles mentioned.

The Steam Database has a solid reputation for spotting these kinds of things, but not a perfect record. They reported finding Halo 3 a while back, and still nothing have come from that. In other words, feel free to hope, but do not take this as official confirmation.

Other games spotted include a port of the Final Fantasy X/X-2 remaster, Final Fantasy VI, and two Danganronpa games, and Sonic Boom. The full list follows.
