Hence, you can expect that “Half-Life 3” will also come with some revolutionized gaming features.

Half-Life 3 VR Support

Even though the makers still pose uncertainty towards the game, over the years regular leaks have kept the eagerness intact. One of such leaks suggested that “Half-Life 3” will explore the possibilities of Virtual Reality. However, a representative from Valve Corporation, Chet Faliszek, said that it is impossible. He also added that VR support in the game is not possible, as it may take a lot of time to develop.

You can expect the release of “Half-Life 3” by 2018, 11 years after “Half-Life 2” and 20 years since the release of the original “Half-Life” game. Valve may be planning to roll-out the third edition on their “China-Jubilee” 20th year anniversary. However, speculations also suggest that Valve has stopped developing games long ago.
