Half-Life 2: Episode 2 launched on October 10, 2007 alongside the unique Portal and Group Fortress 2 in The Orange Field. On the time, there was no means of understanding that this may be the final piece of Half-Life content material we might see for properly over a decade. Whereas the Half-Life: Alyx release date will not convey us closure, it is going to be a brand new chapter within the story - and now we all know it's going to be precisely four,548 days between Half-Life video games. After an initially obscure launch window of March, Valve has confirmed that Half-Life: Alyx is about to launch on March 23, 2020. With barely a month left till launch, it appears the builders are assured they will make the date - so do not anticipate any delays from right here, 'Valve time' be darned. "We let the Valve Time occur earlier than we introduced the sport," the builders joked in an AMA a number of weeks in the past. Additionally they used that stage to elucidate why they haven't been talking about Half-Life 3: "We didn’t speak about Half-Life for a very long time as a result of we weren’t actively engaged on a Half-Life recreation."
