Default Half-Life 3 Trademark Filing was Fake - 10-07-2013, 08:55 | posts: 21,376 | Location: Guru3D testlab

ValveTime.net notes the recent filing of an EU trademark for Half-Life 3 is no longer listed on the OHIM website. They go so far as to say this proves the listing was a hoax, though as far as we know,...

Knew that was coming. They never even announced HL3. They at least announced EP3 years ago so I still expect that to come out first.

I agree. When I first heard about the trademark, I was thinking "they're not going to make the game, they're probably just making sure nobody else does". While I think it's strange that this turned out to be fake, it makes me wonder who said it was real in the first place. Funny how Valve doesn't seem to care the slightest bit that this happened.

The one info about HL3 that is 100% legit (srs) is that Gordon Freeman will ditch the goatee and have a fullbeard this time arround.

Who cares if it's fake or not. Either way Half Life 3 will come out some day.
