The Electronic Entertainment Expo, also known as E3, is the largest gaming expo of the year. This year it takes place from June 7-9 and most publishers and developers will use this time to show off their upcoming titles. Sadly, Valve, will not be one of them so it looks like there will be a longer wait before we hear about any Left 4 Dead or Half Life sequel plans. Here is a brief notice Valve sent around today:

"Lots of folks have mailed asking about appointment times, etc., with Valve.

Well, we are not showing any titles at this year's show. So no appointment is needed."

Valve has made a surprise announcement or two at E3 in the past, even though they were not technically displaying anything on the show floor, so let's keep our fingers crossed for the same this year.
