Valve has revealed that Half-Life 3 will not be a virtual reality title. You can either breath easy or be utterly disappointed.

Chet Faliszek was on hand at EGX, the UK’s biggest gaming event, to discuss the future of Virtual Reality and Valve’s place within it. During a question and answer session at the event, Faliszek was asked by multiple attendees whether or not Half-Life 3 was being developed for VR technology.

Effectively crushing the dreams of virtually every fan of the classic series, his answer was a simple, “No”. Going further, he reiterated the companies main goal to stay ahead of consumer demand, which right now means untethering the VR experience from traditional cables.

Half-Life 3 is inarguably one of the most highly anticipated games ever, and has been hovering around in pre-production since the release of Half-Life 2. Where as each iteration brought something incredibly new to the table in the form of either 3D graphics or real-life physics engines, some players had been hoping that the advent of virtual reality would be the new experience that brings a new sequel into the lime-light.

Currently their is no official word as to either the production of Half-Life 3 or even if the game will actually be made. However, at least fans now know what not to expect from the next iteration in the Half Life series.
