From the looks of it, the game isn’t being made at the moment, though leaks of pre-production footage have become commonplace in recent years.
In fact, one of the artists who worked with Valve on the production of the concept art for half life 3David McGreavy has now announced that he is scanning and archiving his work, and that it will all be available online in due course.
Meanwhile, McGreavy has shown off some curious new pieces, some of which suggest that Valve had some really far-reaching plans for its flagship release before it fizzled out.
According to McGreavy, he has worked on some 50 unique pieces of concept art that have never been seen before, and his conservation efforts could shed additional light on existing details about the cancellation of the show. half life 3.
