Half Life 2 e posibil sa aiba un viitor episod 3, sau sa fi fost cel putin in plan ca un alt episod sa fie lansat pentru joc, insa nu s-a intamplat.

Fostul scriitor pentru franciza Half Life, Marc Laidlaw, a postat pe site-ul propriu o scurta „povestioara” sub forma unei telegrame, scrisa de Gertie Fremont (seamana mult cu Gordon Freeman… nu-i asa?).

O buna parte din ea reprezinta actiunea din Episodul 2, insa cu numele altor personaje, iar continuarea de mai jos, spun fanii, ar fi o idee foarte buna pentru Episodul 3:

Gordon and Alyx head for Antarctica, resting place of the Borealis, the research ship mentioned at the end of Episode 2. They’re shot down as they approach, though, and find that surrounding the ship is an enormous Combine base, inside which the Borealis is continually flickering in and out of existence.

After an encounter with Dr. Breen — whose consciousness had been transplanted into an alien slug’s body, allowing him to survive the demise of his human body in Episode 2 — Gordon, Alyx and Dr. Mossman (who you rescue from a Combine prison) manage to board the Borealis, and while there are pulled across both space and time, seeing things like the Seven Hour War, alien worlds the Combine were about to conquer and even the ship’s origins at Aperture.

Following a dispute over what to do with the ship (Mossman argues for keeping the ship, Alyx wants to honour her father’s wish to destroy it), Alyx shoots Mossman dead, and commits Gordon to a plan to drive the ship into the heart of the Combine’s “invasion nexus”.

Before it can strike, though, the G-Man arrives, speaks with Alyx and the pair depart, leaving Gordon alone to drive the ship on its suicide mission. Just as its about to hit its target, the Vortigaunts open a portal and save Gordon, dropping him on a shore where he isn’t certain of what year it is or how the war against the Combine has ended.

Ce e si mai ciudat este faptul ca acel articol de pe site-ul lui Marc Laidlaw nu mai exista acum, insa a fost salvata prin intermediul Web Archive. Deci exista un motiv pentru care acea „telegrama” sa nu trebuiasca sa fie pe site-ul sau?

E probabil ca aceasta parte a telegramei sa fi fost continuarea pentru un eventual Episod 3 care nu a mai fost lansat, iar Laidlaw a decis in cele din urma sa o publice intr-un mod mai cu subinteles, dar poate Valve au intrat pe fir.
