We spoke to Arkane Studio’s Founder Raphaël Colantonio about his work on Co-Directing the upcoming Prey.
Obviously, we had to ask him about Return To Ravenholm. For those that don’t know. Arkane were working on a cancelled Half-Life 2 Episode (often referred to as Episode 4). This was roughly a decade ago before it was scrapped for unknown reasons.
We asked Colantonio about what he’d personally do if he had the keys to Valve’s precious series today.
“If I could work on a Half-Life game now, that would be terrifying. A lot of people are still waiting for Half Life 3, so If I had to work on that, I would be absolutely terrified. The bar was set so high back then, so I don’t think that anybody could ever meet expectations. To answer, I would rather not work on a Half-Life game.” said Colantonio
He then continued about the fact that it’s still a running joke among the team. “I’ll always joke with the designers about the fact that the Half-Life franchise would be the worst property for any developer to work on. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone.” continued Colantonio.
