Holy Headcrabs! Valve Registers Half-Life 3 in Europe!

New EU trademark application pretty much confirms the existence of Half-Life 3

The day is fast approaching! All of us have been waiting for any sign that Gordon Freeman’s next adventure was being worked on by Valve. We have been speculating for well over six years if Valve was even considering a sequel to one of last decade’s best games. Today, we have finally been given a sign that yes, Valve is indeed working on Half-Life 3!

According to data obtained from The Trade Marks and Designs Registration Office of the European Union, Valve has officially registered Half-Life 3 in the EU. For those who are interested, the description of the classification reads as follows:

Computer game software; Electronic game software; Downloadable computer game software via a global computer network and wireless devices; Video game software.
Provision of on-line entertainment; provision of computer and video games and computer and video game programmes from a computer database or via the Internet.

This pretty much confirms that Valve is actively working on the title since it has gone through the trouble of trademarking the game. However, this does not mean we will be finding out what happened to Gordon and Alyx anytime soon. There still hasn’t been any official statement from Valve on whether the game will be coming out within the next year, but this new registration gives us a lot of hope!
