Fans have been hanging on and hoping for a sequel to the much loved and popular title Half-Life 2. The game quickly became widely successful with many hoping for a release of a Half-Life 3 title, however this never came into fruition.
The sequel became incredibly sought after however fans started to think they would never seen another instalment in the series. This was until we go the announcement of Half-Life Alyx back in 2019.
Half-Life Alyx came as a surprise to many however was well received by the gaming community as it offered players something they had never seen before. The VR experience took the storyline to unexpected places, however it seems now that that wasn’t the last title we will be seeing from the franchise.
It seems that there is new titles in the works over at Valve, the information came from popular leaker “Tyler McVicker” who took to Twitter to share the news.
The Tweet read “Oh God, Valve is working on 2 Half-Life games following up on Half-Life: Alyx….. I AM EXCITED!”

The Tweet claims that there will be two new titles coming soon, one called Citadel and the second currently going by the codename, HLX.
However, Citadel has had some rumours circulating for some time online so this leak could all but confirm that it actually is in development. Citadel is said to be a multiplayer game which will feature title-based maps and an asymmetrical game style when it is eventually released.
Whereas HLX is expected to be somewhat of a sequel to the fan favourite title Half-Life Alyx, could this mean we will be seeing a new VR game?
Of course, with nothing currently officially announced we must take these leaks with a pinch of salt. Although two new games would certainly be exciting, fans will have to wait and see just what is in store for the future at Valve.
