E3 is around the corner and I know you all love your Half Life 3 conspiracy theories, so here’s a neat little one you can cling to in hope for a few weeks based on numerology.
The “tip” hinting at an E3 announcement, sent to Kotaku by reader “Igor,” uses Gabe Newell's rank on the Forbes' Richest Men List as a basis platform, and is pretty clever if nothing else.
Gabe Newell's Rank on Forbes' Richest Men List: 864
Years between HL and HL2: 7 Years
Years between HL2 and L4D2: 5 Years
Years between L4D2 and Portal 2: 3 Years Total: 753
864 - 753 = 111
1 + 1 + 1 = 3
3 = HL3 or Episode 3 (or E3)
That there sure is a theory, alright.
