Much to the disappointment of gamers worldwide, it has been confirmed that Valve has no plans to make product announcements at E3. That means no Left 4 Dead 3, no Portal 3 and no Half Life 3.
Reports first originally came in that a fan posting on ValveTime revealed an e-mail conversation between themselves and Valve boss Gabe Newell stating that already announced products such as DOTA 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, would be the focus.
Gabe’s response read, “We are not announcing anything at E3. Really,” he said. “We are not announcing Half-Life 3 or Portal 3 or Left 4 Dead 3. We are going to be showing stuff everyone already knows about (CS:Go, Dota 2, 10′ UI)”.
“We have no product announcements planned for this year’s show,” Valve comms boss Doug Lombardi told site Joystiq, further cementing gamer’s disappointment.
