In the world of gaming, rumors and speculation often run rampant, fueling the excitement and anticipation of gamers worldwide. This year is no different, as a new rumor has surfaced that has the gaming community buzzing with intrigue.


The annual gaming fair, Gamescom, comes with its companion app, a handy tool that provides a list of exhibitors. This year, an unexpected name has appeared on that list: Valve. This has raised eyebrows across the gaming community, as Valve has not been officially confirmed as an attendee of Gamescom 2023.

Adding to the intrigue, the app’s list of exhibited brands includes Half-Life, a beloved franchise that has been dormant for years. This could, of course, be an error. However, if it’s not, it could signify a major development in the gaming world.

Half-Life, a series that revolutionized the first-person shooter genre, has been the subject of speculation for years. The possibility of Half Life 3 or a spin-off has been a topic of heated discussion among fans. This latest rumor has reignited hope that we may see something related to Half Life pretty soon. While there is always hope for Half Life 3, the more likely outcome should be the rumored multiplayer project set in the Half-Life universe, known as Project Citadel.


Project Citadel has been shrouded in mystery since whispers of its existence first began circulating. If the rumors are true, and Valve is indeed planning to showcase something related to Half-Life at Gamescom, it could very well be our first glimpse at this project (fingers crossed for Half Life 3).
