Default Valve working on 'other' stuff

Valve has teams 'working on other stuff' - Left 4 Dead 2 for Xbox 360 News - VideoGamer.com

Still waiting on Episode 3 so I can buy the whole shebang and play it all at once

I've been waiting for EP3 since forever. Perhaps since Portal looks to have an effect on the Half-Life series, maybe they're working on a Portal 2, but outside of the ASEC. Maybe it leads to White Forest?

My theory is they dropped episode 3 and are working on Half-Life 3 with a totally new engine that will look twice as good as Crysis with better physics than Crytoasis and have the frame rate of MW1. You know valve and how they make half-life.

Then it'll be delayed several years and by the time it comes out will look mediocre compared to all the other games that are released at around the same time...

Well, if Valve wants to upgrade their Source engine, they could start by stopping support of DX8.

Well Half-Life 2 was one of the best looking games out there, had the best physics out there and ran really well. I expect the same for Half-Life 3.
