E3 is the time of the year where the gaming industry comes together to announce new games, hardware, services, provide players with playable betas and basically demonstrate new technology. Consoles and games have been announced at the event in the past, so it’s not a surprise to find out that many gamers were hoping that Valve could be taking the wraps off a new game at the event. Unfortunately that will not be the case. The company has confirmed with the folks over at IGN that they will not be making any new announcements at E3 this year.
This will probably dash the hopes of gamers who might have been looking forward to the rumored Half-Life 3. Instead the company will be demonstrating some of their already-announced games like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and DotA 2. Of course there’s always the chance that Valve could announce the game later on in the year or possibly at 2013’s E3, but one thing’s for sure is that there will be no new announcements at 2012’s E3. Be sure to check back with us then for more details.
