Valve’s database was made public, again, and this time the Internet was able to find the core team of developers working on both Left 4 Dead 3 and Half-Life 3 — the former we’ve known is in the works, the latter one of gaming’s worst kept secrets.
There are some big names attached to each game, including Chet Faliszek (Left 4 Dead series writer), Jess Cliffe (Counter-Strike) and Doug Church (System Shock, Thief) who are all working on Left 4 Dead 3, as well as Erik Wolpaw (Portal), Kelly Bailey (Half-Life series composer), Sergiy Migdalskiy (Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Far Cry) and Marc Laidlaw (Half-Life) working on Half-Life 3. The teams are largely comprised of fairly well-known Valve veterans and experienced designers, writers and composers.
We know they’re coming, it’s just a matter of time. Unfortunately, it’s Valve time.
