Half-Life broke its own online record on Steam because of fan flashmob. On August 14, 1998, more than 12,000 users were simultaneously in the game, the best result of the last two and a half years.
In January 2020, Valve made four major games in the series.

The campaign was supported by many video-logists, as well as social media fans, using #RemberFreeman.
On August 15, Radiation Hazard released another video that congratulated the community on a new achievement. According to the blogger, the goal of the event was to show that Half-Life fans.
Exactly a year ago, concerned users held a similar event at Half-Life 2: On 14 August, 16182 people gathered in the sequel. In February 2012, the same flash mob raised the number to 12953.
Players hope that such actions will help attract Valve's attention and accelerate the emergence of Half-Life 3, but it is rumored that the company is not in a hurry to develop a new part. In November last year, insider Tyler McVicker reported that it is currently focusing on Steam Deck and projects that will reveal the potential of the console, while the third Half-Life and the continuation of Half-Life: Alyx is not a priority.
Meanwhile, last week, the authors of a large-scale VR modification for Half-Life 2 announced that they would release a public beta version of their project in September. The free fashion would move the game to virtual reality with Half-Life: Alyx. Another group of fashioners, Lambda Team, is now working on Black Mesa Classic, an unofficial Black Mesa demo, a remake of the original Half-Life from Crowbar Collection.
