Valve Files Trademark For Half-Life 3 [Update: "Likely A Hoax"]
Posted on Friday, October 4 @ 16:15:00 PST by Alex_Osborn
[Update]It looks like Valve may not have registered the trademark forHalf-Life 3after all, asValveTimehas posted an update, reporting that the registration has since been removed and is "more than likely a hoax."
Here's the update in full:
We can now confirm that the "Half-Life 3" trademark has been removed from theTrademarks and Design Registration Office of the European Union (OHIM)website. The entrant appears to have disappeared entirely after only being listed on the website database for little over a week, allowing us to identify that the trademark's listing was more than likely a hoax intended to generate fake buzz for a game which is unlikely to appear for several years. Returning readers may remember when we had discussed how the "Half-Life 3" listing was previously never officially checked or authenticated before its removal.Sorry, folks.
[Original]The folks over at Valve have filed a trademark forHalf-Life 3,adding fuel to the raging fire currently burning within the hearts of Gordon Freeman fans all over the globe.
The trademark, which was filed in Europe, was unearthed byDualShockers. You can check out a screenshot of the registration below.
With the recent reveal of SteamOS, Steam Machines, and the risky new Steam Controller, one would think Valve might have some software in the works as a showpiece for its new platform. WillHalf-Life 3end up having some sort of exclusivity on SteamOS? There's certainly a good chance that'll be the case.
