Orange County Weekly Puts Episode Three On Their “5 Video Games That Should Be Released By Now, But May Never Be” List

Episode Three is woefully, woefully late. We all know it, and now Orange County Weekly‘s readers know it too, in case they didn’t already, as they’ve placed Episode Three on their “5 Video Games That Should Be Released By Now, But May Never Be” list. The other 4 are the infamous “StarCraft: Ghost”; “Final Fantasy Versus 13″; “Beyond Good & Evil 2″ and “Shenmue 3″. OC Weekly has this to say about Episode Three:

Half Life 2: Episode 3 (Years in Development: At least 5)

​Developer Valve has been pretty famous for its delays, and considering how long it’s taking for Half Life 2: Episode 3 to be released, this may be their biggest delay yet. Announced in 2006 that the game is scheduled for release during Holiday 2007, the game has been in development for at least 5 years. Other than a bunch of teaser images released in various games over the years, very little information of the game has been released to the public.

Quite right, except for the “at least 5 years” thing. It’s more “as much as 5 years”. EP3′s delay isn’t quite Valve’s biggest one yet either, but it isn’t too far from that dubious honor. Still, it’s a nice little mention. Check the list out here.

  1. Dude, don’t forget that TF2 was delayed a whole decade! Five years is nothing!

  2. well, as long as the community keeps ticking, I can see a fan-made episode 3 coming eventually.

    I feel it is obvious they are working on it (what with all the infos in the SDKs)
