Sorry, I’m a few days late with this week’s poll question and lucky too because I didn’t really have one until I read Reddit today and saw the above.
I’ve talked about outsourcing Half-Life 3 before, specifically with regard to Gearbox, but I wonder if Valve would ever sell the whole Half-Life licence. If they actually plan to never make another HL game again (and I don’t believe that for a second), it could make financial sense.
The question is if whoever they sold it to made a crappy game that would also tarnish Valve reputation. In many ways it’s a lose-lose situation for then.
But maybe it comes down to would you rather take the chance of playing a crappy HL game than never knowing if Valve were to make one?
