Rumors of a TF3 (Team Fortress 3) have been floating in the air, and rightly so. Team Fortress 2 was released in late October of 2007, and with no expansions (as of yet), that makes it ancient in the eyes of the video game world. If you have no idea of what TF2 is, then you might agree with me, but if you do, then you would squish me beneath your all knowing foot for suggesting something so crazy and out there.
If you look at all the game Valve has made since their founding in 1996, you will see a pattern in all of the games made. None of them contain a 3rd number at the end. Instead, they made other names to branch off the games. “Half Life 2: Episode One” and Half Life 2: Episode 2” are prime examples of the reluctance to use the number three. Why they don’t make title’s with threes. The answer is very simple, maybe they like to stop at the second game? (though all the Half-Life expansions put a short end to this point) Or maybe they simply can’t count, and are going to skip to the number four. Who really knows anyway.
But wouldn’t it be nice if they could count, or simply make another game for the Half-Life series, of the Left4Dead games series? (Spoiler alert) Then we could have an answer to the ending of “Half Life 2: Episode 2″. Questions like, Are Gordon and Alyx even are going to go to the Borealis?, spring into my mind when I think about it. Unfortunately, we may never know, as Valve has yet to break the three-less trend as of yet. However this doesn’t stop many from hoping of a c.
Those who play TF2 will know that Valve is constantly updating the game, and those updates are wonderful. Every month players get a new game-play experience or another, updates, and new weapons and hats brought to you by other community members. Lots of people don’t even want a new Team Fortress game, as they love the one that Valve has given them. The success of this game has been going strong for around 6 years, and I don’t see it stopping in the near future. (And I doubt Valve does either)
