Gabe Newell has revealed not only are there reasons, but "very good" ones at that for Valve not to be discussing Half-Life 2: Episode 3.
Whatever they are though will have to remain unknown because it's something he "can't talk about yet," but he will eventually. Doug Lombardi reminds Newell they don't talk Ep3 "publicly."
"Oh well, I guess I’m not talking about Episode 3 publicly either," Newell jokes with in an interview, just after Lombardi cracked the PR whip.
"I get a ton of email everyday saying why aren’t you talking about Episode 3? And there are very good reasons why we’re not talking about Episode 3, which I can’t talk about yet, but I will," he continued. Are you scratching your eyes out waiting for the next instalment?
