You're working at valve's financial team when gaben himself drops by your office and tells you to put the rights for half-life 3 up for sale.

Which developer do you send the notice to first?
>>
Ubisoft.

Phil Fish

EA

EA.

You're not going to last long at Valve if you don't aggressively pursue profit. The IP shall otherwise go to the highest bidder.

Why would the financial division try to find a buyer for the entry?

Bethesda

2by3 games, Illwinter Game Design, Bay 12 Games or similar.

Gearbox would be Badass

You understand what he's saying, he obviously doesn't understand how corporations work. So just shut the fuck up and enjoy the thread

Arkane Studios duh

Maybe not buy, but "which external studio could actually make decent HL3"
>>
>>393180452
monolith, splash damage, gearbox, or retro

Come on guys Source is a modded Quake engine. Plus they’ve been doing a spectacular job in recent years with their shooters
>>
>>393182098
Do you seriously want Bethesda to fucking manage HL3?? jesus christ
>>
>>393182412
Why hasn't arkane gone solo yet? Aren't they big enough to get away from that dumpster of a publisher?
>>
>>393182565
Bethesda bought them before Dish1 came out
>>
>>393182412
What’s the problem? It’s a shooter not an rpg. Doom was good under ID. Dishonored was good under Arkane. Bethesda only becomes a problem when they try to make an RPG.
>>
>>393181398

>HL3 has SMOD features from the beginning, but also includes HEV longjump module and wallrunning

Fund it
>>
>>393183042
Dishonored 2's biggest flaw is it uses Id's engine. If Arkane was independent there's no way they'd even want to use that pos. Doom wasn't as good as it should've been but it's hard to tell if it's Id's or Bethesda's fault. Thing is I don't want fuckin loot crates and paid mods infesting my HL3. Bethesda would soil it.
>>
>>393183381
Ok that is actually a good point. I saw Doom multiplayer as Bethesda meddling and I see where you’re coming from, and loot boxes would shit on it. But from a gameplay perspective I think things would turn out alright.

Some no name studio controlled by Chinese investors.
i.e. the studio making the new bubsy

Bioware

Half Life deserves it.

A company can have divisions however they find best. It's Valve.

CD Projekt

Unironically give it to the guys behind pathologic and the void. Valve says they're innovators, and when I think of half life 3 I think of a collapsing world and the rebellion crushed, and it's just him and with gmans guidance, breaking reality further in a surreal more horror like shooter.

What fucking logic is this?

>kintsukuroi the art of repairing shit with gold and realizing it becomes more beautiful
>>
Gearbox

SONY

they have a better track record for 'cinematic experiences' than most. And lets be honest, that is what HL2 was.

Isn't it an art in itself in japan when pottery cracks without even repairing it?
>>
>>393190979
No, but there is a form of aesthetics that finds beauty in things that are worn and rustic. Its called wabi sabi.
>>
>>393180452
EA, without a doubt. I've never had any interest in the Half life series and I really think the huge shit storm that would come if either EA or Ubisoft got the rights to it would be just the best.

OR or actually giving Sony the rights so it's not even on PC
