Valve Files Trademark for Half-Life 3

The bigger news is that they hadn't already done this.

After getting a taste of fanboy tears last week when telling the world they had three huge announcements to make and then not announcing Half-Life 3, Valve has decided it likes the taste of those tears.  So it's come out that they filed a trademark for Half-Life 3 on September 26th and considering that the game is rumored to be on the way ever other month with the littlest of actual proof to back it up, this was too much for fans.

Does this mean Half-Life 3 is on the way?  About as much as it meant a DLC for Skyrim dealing with Redguard was on the way earlier this year.  Although it would make a good bit of sense for Valve to back up the launch of their new gaming platform with a, possibly exclusive, big title like Half-Life 3, fans may be all out of hope.  But, just as the tears of last-week's non-HL3 announcement dry up, will such a huge sign get them flowing again?  Or have fans become so jaded they they will believe every move about the game from here on out is Valve trolling them?  At this point, some may not even believe the game exists as they play.

About the Author - Jeremy Shane

Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea.  Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California.  When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead.  Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim.  If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
