Half Life 3 listed on SteamDB – But don't get your hopes up

Half-Life 3 confirmed?! Well, not quite. A listing for Half-Life 3 has appeared on SteamDB, but it could be a developer naming their own app or package.
At least once a year, something happens that makes Half-Life fans declare, “Half-Life 3 confirmed.” This time, it’s because a listing for the long awaited title has appeared on SteamDB.
But before you get too excited, it’s not confirmation that the release of Half-Life 3 is imminent. As SteamDB explains, “While this information comes straight from Valve, and many similar types of leak turned out to be real in the past, it is important to remember that third-party Steam developers can create and name their own apps/packages, a noteworthy mention of developers doing this are these packages, in which they are trying to XSS Steam.”
“Many things could also be old entries and as such no longer be in development/coming to Steam. An example of a previous leak that ended up being nothing (yet) is Halo 3,” it added.
While Half-Life 3 is perhaps the most anticipated of the new additions, PC gamers will be eager to get their hands on some of the other titles recently listed. Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD, Final Fantasy VI, Dangonronpa 1 and 2, Earth Defense Force 4.1, and Guilty Gear Xrd Sign, among others, also appeared on SteamDB.
As of yet, none of these titles, including Half-Life 3, are confirmed.
