The games press being caught in the PUBLISH FIRST ask questions later trap. So sad.

Calling it now, HL3 will be HL2 but with the addition of hats.
Maybe history will repeat itself and HL3 will come the same year as Doom 4

To keep the hype alive:
Some guy from the german gaming tv-show GameOne published some pics on Twitter:
Translation: Saw game at gamescom. Took picture of the screen. Can't wait for NDA to be over. Risky!
Translation: Last view of the tech screens. You're waiting for this 3 times, half your life
new reports indicate the price of the game will depend if gaben has eaten yet.
Payment will be taken in cakes only
Your posting is medium, its not rare and its not well done

I'm guessing this means they've been working on HL3 and wanted to show a demo at E3 but pulled it this year? Next year maybe, in time for a November/Christmas release?
TBH that could be a stairwell in just about any modern FPS
Or it could be the Half Life Black Mesa mod guys showing off
OMG STAIRS AND A HANDRAIL OMG OMG IT MUST BE HL3
Seriously, what are the chances of HL3 being released without at least of year of teaser videos / ads / whatever, like portal 2 / tf2 meet the X etc etc?
Also willing to bet that the first one will be a series of landscape shots and shit that doesn't immediately scream HL (no striders or anythign like that), followed by a 1 sec shot of crowbar then cut to black.
Gaben is going for the long troll on this one.
Calling it now, Valve drops HL3 in the steam store Oct. 15th. They don't add it to the "new releases" list.
