Valve, creators of Half-Life, Portal, Left 4 Dead, and much more as well as the video game service Steam, will not be exhibiting at this year’s E3,

This comes as no real surprise as Valve traditionally does not turn up at the annual press event, much like Rockstar Games – another huge studio in the industry. In case you held any small glimmer of hope that Half-Life 3 would be announced at E3, this confirms that it won’t. We don’t even know if it’s in development, but at least we have Fallout 4 to look forward to.

Valve’s last appearance at E3 came by the way of Gabe Newell, co-founder of the studio, back in 2010 to discuss the then-soon to be released Portal 2. Other than that, the studio looks set to continue its mystical presence as a game developer and publisher.

When, if ever, do you expect Valve to return to the Electronic Entertainment Expo?
