    Valve not planning any product announcements for E3 2012, will be attending



    At this year's E3, you can officially leave any Valve Software product announcements firmly off your pre-show bingo cards. Valve rep Doug Lombardi told Joystiq this morning, "We have no product announcements planned for this year's show," confirming a reported email exchange between a ValveTime.net forum member and Valve Software head Gabe Newell.

    In the purported exchange, which Valve declined to confirm, Newell told the forum member, "We are not announcing anything at E3. Really." The email goes further than that, adding, "We are not announcing Half-Life 3 or Portal 3 or Left 4 Dead 3. We are going to be showing stuff everyone already knows about (CS:Go [Counterstrike: Global Offensive], Dota 2, 10' UI [Steam 'Big Picture Mode'])."

    So, while it looks like Valve is attending E3, don't get your hopes too high for any software or hardware announcements. The other possibility, of course, is that we're being lied to (it wouldn't be the first such instance before E3). We're giving Valve the benefit of the doubt.

    I don't normally say this but I wish I was being lied to.

    The gifs sum up my feelings of this news.

    It could either be a surprise or disappointment in E3 for Half Life fans. I think I've waited long enough to not be fazed by this if true.

    No...of course not *sigh*

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.

    It's either going to be Portal 3 or Counter Portal announcement.

    I was thinking the same thing. Valve is not a fan of the gaming industry, they don't jus show up and enjoy the show. They outta be showing off something, or shutting the F up.

    Well, they do have Steam, Dota and so on..

    It is disappointing that they haven't continued Half Life series, but apparently it is not big in their priority list.

    I'm waiting for DOTA 2 and CS:GO! Too bad I've heard beta testers say it doesn't feel like CS anymore.
