Half-Life 3 rumors squashed by Surgeon Simulator 2013 dev

An easter egg in indie developer Bossa Studios' wacky surgery game Surgeon Simulator 2013 got gamers all hot and bothered, thinking it was tease for Half Life 3.

The egg was found in the Team Fortress 2 update to the game, a note taped to an object which said in Korean "The time is". Dots seemed to refer to planets within the solar system. Gamers jumped on this as a reference to the original Half-Life, with the first words spoken in it "The time is 8:47 a.m." by the feminine loudspeaker voice.

Bossa Studios put an end to that speculation on Twitter, stating, "Whoa! It seems that you've got a little ahead of yourselves! Here's a clue: THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ANY VALVE GAMES! Carry on now…"

The previous rumor about Half-Life 3 involved Steambox, but that turned out to be a hoax, it seems.

If it's not gonna be spectacular they don't even have to bother anymore, it's been too long for us to accept anything average.

The best speculation is that the dots represent the main planets, with the biggest dot representing the Sun - which makes it Saturn, Jonah! :)

So "SA" could mean something is happening Saturday. Probably the Steam Summer Sale.

People REALLY... want Half-Life 3. Wonder why it has taken so long to at least state that it's on its way. Well, the game will probably be the best seller once it's released.
