Valve has confirmed that it will not be announcing any new projects at this year's E3. While an email obtained by a forum member at <a target="_blank" href=" http://www.valvetime.net/threads/gabe-newell-we-are-not-announcing-anything-at-e3.189989/" target="_blank">ValveTime</a> last week suggested that Valve had nothing planned for E3, Valve has now independently confirmed to IGN that this is the case.<br/><br/>Previously, a great deal of <a target="_blank" href=" http://pc.ign.com/articles/121/1216238p1.html" target="_blank">speculation</a> has surrounded the announcement of Half-Life 3, among other projects. The Half-Life franchise was last seen in 2007 with the release of Half-Life 2: Episode Two in The Orange Box.<br/><br/> <object id="vid_22cc7180610a9ec2b8df54ea7ea5416b" class="ign-videoplayer" width="468" height="293" data="http://oystatic.ignimgs.com/src/core/swf/IGNPlayer.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="movie" value="http://oystatic.ignimgs.com/src/core/swf/IGNPlayer.swf"/><param name="" value="true"/><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"/><param name="bgcolor" value="#000000"/><param name="flashvars" value="url=http://www.ign.com/videos/2012/03/30/5-gravity-gun-half-life-2-igns-top-100-video-game-weapons"/><param name="wmode" value="opaque"/></object> <br/><br/>At the moment, Valve is working on Dota 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, both of which are currently in closed beta.
