Oh man. This could be it, this could really be it. Please let this be it.

Some sleuths at Neogaf have recently discovered that Valve has filed a trademark for Half Life 3 for use as “”video game software” on September 29. While it’s not anywhere near a confirmation, and we see game companies do this all the time just to keep ownership of a trademark, anything gives hope for a possible return to Valve’s much loved First Person Shooter franchise.

We last saw Half Life back in 2007 with Half Life 2: Episode 1. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard a rumor about the existence of Half Life 3 (seriously, go ahead and search for Half Life 3 here on Blast), but the timing is curious; Valve recently announced a new operating system and controller, meant for getting Steam into more homes and most importantly – -the living room. What better way to do that than by giving people the most anticipated game in history.

Stick with Blast for more updates.
