I am fully aware that this is old news but I only recently found out that valve has outsourced the development of Half Life² Episode 4 to french dev-team Arkane Studios.
Half Life² is among my favourite FPS games and with Arx Fatalis, Dark Messiah and Dishonored under their belt, Arkane is also among my favorite developers….especially when it comes to creative vision. Now Dishonored 2 and the new Prey didn’t strike my fancy but thats another story.
