something totally unrelated to Half-Life
If you're talking about that website, if it is legitimate then it's certainly relevant to Half-Life considering the text below the image depicts 'Half-Life 3'. When I think about it more, however, it seems to make less sense for the site to be legitimate. Black Aperture seems like a mashup of Black Mesa and Aperture Science's names (you can see Aperture's logo in the background very faded if you look carefully), and although both of those exist in the Half-Life universe, I don't see why the two rival companies would have their names mixed together in the naming of an upcoming game, especially as in the current situation I'm pretty sure that Black Mesa is essentially shut down, and I assume from the general state of the world that the same goes for Aperture, and Portal is simply set at a different time. I may be wrong, though.
As a whole, I get the impression that this site isn't an announcement of HL3, however as previously stated I certainly do hope that it is. and am not completely ruling out the chance that it is.
