Half-Life 3, or any other follow-up to Half-Life: Alyx is currently not in development, according to online rumors.

In a new video shared on YouTube, known Valve leaker Tyler McVicker talked about the future of the series, saying that no new entry in the series is currently in development, despite Half-Life: Alyx hinting that a continuation of Gordon Freeman's story. According to the leaker, Valve is focusing on the Steam Deck, and so it is working on games that will work well on the system, like the rumored Citadel, pretty much putting any traditional FPS with keyboard and mouse controls to the side.

While it seems like the Half-Life series has been put on hold again, Valve hasn't completely forgotten about its popular series, as it has released last month new updates for Half-Life 2, Episode One, and Episode Two that introduce a variety of improvements.

The latest entry in the series, Half-Life: Alyx, is now available on Steam. The game can only be played in VR, although it is possible to play the game normally with mods.

Half-Life: Alyx is Valve’s VR return to the Half-Life series. It’s the story of an impossible fight against a vicious alien race known as the Combine, set between the events of Half-Life and Half-Life 2.

Playing as Alyx Vance, you are humanity’s only chance for survival. The Combine’s control of the planet since the Black Mesa incident has only strengthened as they corral the remaining population in cities. Among them are some of Earth’s greatest scientists: you and your father, Dr. Eli Vance.

As founders of a fledgling resistance, you’ve continued your clandestine scientific activity—performing critical research, and building invaluable tools for the few humans brave enough to defy the Combine.

Every day, you learn more about your enemy, and every day you work toward finding a weakness.
