As we all know, Game Informer and Valve are bros.
What gaming publication had exclusive information and screenshots of Portal 2 way back in April on one of its issues, and had their own Portal 2 Hub through which they continued to release Portal 2 info on their website? Game Informer, of course.
What gaming publication came forward with the exclusive announcement of DotA 2, and has done plenty of interviews with Valve in the past? Game Informer.
What gaming publication said, at the beginning of 2010 that there would be no Half-Life during that year (which they got spot on), and even implied the next Half-Life may be “Half-Life 3?” Game Informer.
What gaming publication’s executive editor stated that “Half-Life 3″ was a popular guess for Game Informer’s February 2011 issue’s cover story? (note that that particular issue has already been revealed to not have anything Half-Life-related, but it’s still fairly relevant)? Why, it was Andrew Reiner, executive editor at Game Informer.
You get the idea.
Today, Game Informer have just launched their “What’s Ahead: Game Informer’s 2011 Predictions” article.
The article contains all the usual stuff: Microsoft predictions, Nintendo predictions, various wacky industry predictions, etcetera. Some of them sound awfully, awfully precise though. It seems as though these are more than simple guesses.
But what really, really caught our eye was this:
Half-Life 3 revealed
And it looks great. Surprise.
That’s all they mention. Unlike the other predictions, which are fairly large, that’s all they say here.
I don’t think I need to say anything else, folks.
Anything at all.
