Black Mesa creators tease their next game

Crowbar Collective, the Half-Life fan team behind Black Mesa, posted a video on their YouTube channel on February 23 with the simple caption: “Incoming Signal.” As you might expect, there’s very little information in the video about what the signal is, but the description does ask fans to head to the studio’s website and sign up for “future updates and beta tests.”


If you’re not familiar with Crowbar Collective, the team started as a group of fans wanting to develop a mod for Half-Life. After releasing their remake of Valve’s shooter on the Source game engine, the team managed to attract the attention of Valve itself, which approved the commercial version of Black Mesa, released on Steam in 2015.


Now in 2024, the team has grown into an independent developer who, as its website says, “loves Half-Life, loves game design, and is committed to creating high-quality content.” It’s unclear whether Crowbar Collective’s next project will be another Valve-affiliated reimagining of Half-Life, or perhaps an original IP – we’ll have to wait and see what that signal is before making any proper predictions.


Naturally, that hasn’t stopped fans from trying to figure out what Crowbar Collective is working on. Since the trailer shows four different beams of light, many began to associate their colors with various additions to Half-Life: purple – from Half-Life: Decay, green – Half-Life: Opposing Force, blue – Half-Life: Blue Shift, etc. Further.
