    Elon Musk and Axl Rose have the timeliness of a Swiss Watch by comparison:

    It’s been over a decade since Valve first promised Half-Life 2: Episode 3

    2006 was before the first iPhone and before President Obama and the Tesla Roadster.

    SpaceX has landed multiple Falcon 9 rockets and Model X is finally being delivered in volume.

    And still, there is no conclusion to the Half Life story, which stalled on a cliffhanger more than 10 years ago. C'mon Valve!!! Blizzard shipped StarCraft 2 in 2010 and has continued to update the story since.

    I believe that was officially terminated as a project many years ago.

    Some believe that, one day, Half-Life 3 will literally just show up on Steam with no fanfare -- Beyonce-style.

    More realistically, it's never happening, Valve just doesn't make narrative-driven single-player games like Half-Life anymore. The make service-oriented things like Dota 2.
