Gabe Newell is doing an AMA today so you can ask him about Half-Life 3

Go ahead, AHA. He may not AE, though

Gabe Newell Valve Corp.
Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

Valve boss Gabe Newell is doing an AMA this evening where you can ask where the hell Half-Life 3 is, what happened to Half-Life 3, is Half-Life 3 still in development, and when is Half-Life 3 launching.

Newell may not answer that — Valve has clammed up about Half-Life 3 for nearly a decade. Regardless, even though Newell is (and others at Valve are) famous for answering random crap sent to his email, doing an AMA is significant for Valve. It may portend some kind of announcement, but no guarantees.

In all seriousness, this would be a good time to talk about esports and Dota 2, especially in light of the huge update that landed last month. Valve also is a partner in the HTC Vive headset and has been entangled in a messy "skin gambling" scandal in Counter-Strike. Any of these would be great fodder for questions.

The AMA begins at 6 p.m. ET on THE_GABEN subreddit.

But, yeah, Half-Life 3. Someone's gonna ask about it, the only question is, how many? We'll set the over/under at 50.
