Half-Life 1: November 19th, 1998 (2 years after Valve's founding in 1996)
Half-Life 2: November 14th, 2004 (5 days short of 6 years later)
HL2 Episode 1: June 1, 2006 (19 months later)
HL2 Episode 2: October 10, 2007 (16 months later)

On October 6th this year we will have passed the longest time between official Half-Life releases.

Now, some crazy speculative mathematics:

Half-Life was completed in nearly 2 years / 24 months. 24 divided by 4 equals 6. Half-Life 2 was developed in nearly 6 years / 72 months. 72 divided by 4 equals 18.
Half-Life 3 will be developed in 18 years (After 2004) so will be released in 2022.

Which means unless Valve does more episodes for HL3, we won't be seeing HL4 until 2076, and if the Fallout Series is to be believed the world will fall to nuclear devastation in 2077. I wonder how many mods will be released before the apocalypse...

I always say that maps need to focus a lot more on the exchange of newts.

I miss the part where you explain the meaning of dividing by four.

D'aw, Valve aren't working on Ep3 anymore.

Valve bought MCPOKER and are working on MCPOKER 2(Son of MCPOKER) & MCP3(The MCPOKERING), but shortly will trash both of them if favor of the stunning prequel: MCP4(MCPOKER BEGINS) =)

I suspect that HL3 isn't on top of valve's priority at this point. I mean they keep talking about making a feature film and right now possibly a console, added to the constant steam software updates and trading cards, as well as rumours of their focus on a L4D3 rather than HL3 all goes to show that HL3 prolly won't be coming for a long time.

Valve said themselves that they didn't want to hype up their games as much anymore because they don't want to disappoint the fans by changing the date of release.
