Portal 3 Replaces The Half-Life Hoax
Bad news (or expected news in some ways) everyone: That Half-Life 3 trademark that appeared in Europe last week has been confirmed as a hoax by Valve, with website ValveTime reporting that the trademark was removed late last week by the studio. Thing is, it was replaced by something.
Replacing Half-Life 3 however, is a Portal 3 trademark, which is even more surprising considering Portal 2 seemed to wrap things up quite nicely. That’s not to say I wouldn’t love a third entry into my favourite gaming franchise this generation, and I’m pretty sure Valve is working on something, I just doubt whether this trademark is confirmation that we’re actually going to hear about it soon.

And we all know how opposed Valve is to the number 3, so who even knows if it’s three biggest franchises at the moment will ever see the light of day again. Could you imagine a world without another Left 4 Dead, Portal or Half-Life? I know I couldn’t, but I wouldn’t mind a brand new IP either.
Again, sorry to bring you down if you were still under the impression that last week’s trademark was any form of confirmation. Then again, you should know better by now.
