The gaming world learned a very important lesson with the release of Halo: those men and women at Bungie know what they’re doing. After taking the shooter franchise to the absolute heights of video game fame and profitability, they left the project in Microsoft’s hands to try something new. We’ve known for some time that Bungie was working on something, but only recently has it become very likely that the next PC (possibly virtual-reality) game from the developers is currently titled Destiny.
Details on the game are just rumors at this point, but if Bungie is attached, we want to know about it. The company has already claimed that they won’t be appearing at E3, but major developers playing dumb in the lead-up to a major announcement is nothing new. Bungie has since teased a major July 7 announcement, and while it’s possible they may be waiting until E3 has come and gone to make any formal announcement, we hope to at least get some idea of what Destiny will be at this year’s event.
Half-Life 3/ Half-Life 2: Ep. 3
Half-Life 3 is one of the biggest mysteries in the gaming world today. Going even beyond that, Half Life 2: Episode 3 is one of the biggest mysteries in the gaming world today. While Valve has officially announced that they won’t be making any more episodic content, the plans to make an Episode 3 were revealed long ago. As if to say it’s never coming, Valve has it listed as arriving along with the Rapture on their Valve-Time development release schedule page.
What’s most likely is that a big Half-Life 3 reveal will come when Valve is ready to unveil a brand new game engine to the masses in the same way that they did with Half-Life 2 and their Source engine. But will that be at this E3?It doesn’t seem likely, but we’re still keeping our fingers crossed as Half-Life 3 remains the most elusive PC game of the last half decade, and is pushing for a much bigger gap than that between Half-Life and Half-Life 2. We still want to know what happens to our world, just who the G-Man is, and just how humanity is going to survive the continued Combine threat.
