Is your deep itch to eradicate Combine getting you down what with the delays on Half-Life 2: Episode 2? Well, here is something to lift your spirits – sort of: Doug Lombari of Valve is reporting that Episode 2 will be noticeably longer than Episode 1.
Of course, Episode 2 couldn’t really be shorter than Episode 1 without being categorized as a tech demo or interactive screen saver. The really good news is that Episode 2 took quite a bit less time to produce than Episode 1. This brings hope to those of us who love the idea of episodic content, but don’t think that Valve’s year-plus dev cycle counts as episodic.
