Valve 'not announcing anything at E3'

Gabe Newell says studio will be "showing stuff everyone already knows"

Those hoping to get the first word on new entries in the Half-Life, Portal or Left 4 Dead series at next month's E3 look set to be left disappointed.


A seemingly genuine email sent by Valve boss Gabe Newell to fan site ValveTime said of the company's E3 plans:

"We are not announcing anything at E3. Really. We are not announcing Half-Life 3 or Portal 3 or Left 4 Dead 3. We are going to be showing stuff everyone already knows about (CS:Go, Dota 2, 10' UI, ...)"

We guess there's still time for a change of heart, but it doesn't sound likely.

Valve's company handbook for new starters found its way onto the net last month, and it's fair to say the company likes to do things a little differently from your average developer, employing no real managers and letting its employees pretty much pick and choose their projects.
