Valve refuses Saber Interactive’s offer to remake Half-Life 2


0

World War Z’s developers from Saber Interactive reached out to Valve with intentions of remaking the legendary Half-Life 2. It has been 15 years since Half-Life 2 has come out and fans to this day talk about Half-Life 3 or even 2’s remake. This is the second time Saber Interactive’s offer to a company has been refused. Previously Saber Interactive proposed a multiplayer mode for Days Gone but unfortunately SIE Bend Studios declined as well.

In an interview with GameWatcher, Matthew Karch stated:

AFTER WE DID HALO ANNIVERSARY AND HALO 2 ANNIVERSARY, AS PART OF THE MASTER CHIEF COLLECTION, I REACHED OUT TO GABE NEWELL PERSONALLY, BECAUSE I KNEW HIM FROM A PAST LIFE, AND I SAID I WANT TO REMAKE HALF-LIFE 2. THAT’S ALL I WANT TO DO. I WON’T CHARGE YOU ANYTHING FOR IT. I’LL DO IT FOR REV-SHARE AND DOESN’T EVEN NEED TO BE A BIG REV-SHARE. I JUST REALLY WANT TO DO BECAUSE I LOVE THAT GAME SO MUCH.

Valve later on responded to Karch request and declined by saying the following.

SORRY, IF WE’RE GOING TO DO IT, WE’RE GOING TO DO IT INTERNALLY.

This will come as a disappointment to many fans, but if there is going to be a Half-Life 3 or 2’s remake, then Valve wants to do it themselves. Unfortunately, Valve is known to be very slow with updates and releases so don’t expect a new Half-Life anytime soon.
