Saber Interactive, the developer behind World War Z, approached Valve with the possibility of having it remake Half-Life 2. However, Valve responded that if a remake does happen, it will be done internally.
GameWatcher spoke to Saber Interactive CEO and co-founder Matthew Karch who discussed that after Saber worked on Halo: The Master Chief Collection, the team then turned its eyes to Half-Life 2.
“After we did Halo Anniversary and Halo 2 Anniversary, as part of the Master Chief Collection, I reached out to Gabe Newell personally, because I knew him from a past life, and I said I want to remake Half-Life 2,” Karch said. “That’s all I want to do. I won’t charge you anything for it. I’ll do it for rev-share and doesn’t even need to be a big rev-share. I just really want to do because I love that game so much.”
