"Important announcements will come directly from us," Valve said of the "Citadel" rumor

Tech Highlights:

  • Valve, on the other hand, told IGN that McVicker had “no inside information” on the company’s inner workings. “It’s important to approach [Valve News Network content producer Tyler McVicker’s] reporting with a fair dose of scepticism.” We think it’s vital to emphasise that, while Tyler is a dedicated player, he has no inside knowledge of Valve’s operations. As you are aware, any significant announcements about projects on which we are or are not engaged will be made directly by us.”

  • Without rumours of a new Half-Life, it wouldn’t be a year. According to Tyler McVicker on YouTube, it’s called Citadel and will be a co-op FPS/RTS mix with inspirations from Left 4 Dead and Half-Life. This was ostensibly done to help the Steam Deck. Also, Half-Life 3 isn’t in the works because, well, it’s not.

Though it didn’t outright deny the existence of Citadel, this could be viewed more as Valve telling fans not to get their hopes up over reports and rumors. If any hype must be generated, then it should be in the wake of official announcements, at least according to the company.

Valve hasn’t outright abandoned the Half-Life franchise – the release of Half-Life: Alyx last year for PC VR headsets is proof of the same. But trying to predict where the franchise could go and when a potential sequel could release is borderline impossible. Nevertheless, stay tuned in the meantime.
