Valve E3 reveal "isn't Ep 3" - Newell

Boss quells Half-Life 2 speculation.

Valve boss Gabe Newell has mailed fan site HalfLife2.net to say that the developer's E3 reveal is not Half-Life 2: Episode 3.

Valve lit up the internet with speculation last week when it cheekily said it was replacing its Portal 2 event with a "surprise".

When emailed about the surprise by the site, Newell simply replied, "It isn't ep 3".

Newell also dismissed an image bearing the Half-Life logo, hero Gordon Freeman's name and "14th June" - the date of Valve's event. "Fake," he said.

Portal 2 is definitely being shown at E3, so whatever Valve's plans are, we won't be coming home empty-handed. Look out for more info - yes - next week.
