Half-Life 3, Dragon Age 3, BioShock Infinite Shown Privately At Gamescom? [Updated]
Gamescom document suggests that some exciting - and technically unannounced - games could be showing behind closed doors.

A gamescom rep has told EuroGamer that both Half-Life 3 and Dragon Age 3 were listed 'in error' without going into detail. 2K Games has also confirmed to us that BioShock Infinite is not being shown at Gamescom this year.
Half-Life 3, Dragon Age 3, BioShock Infinite have all been mentioned on an 'Expected Games' document on the gamescom website.
The pdf translates as "Expected new gamescom 2012" and includes numerous known games from most of the major exhibitors/publishers at the Cologne event.
The document goes a step further though, listing Half-Life 3 as a Valve title, the unannounced Dragon Age 3 under EA and BioShock Infinite, rumoured to have undergone development difficulties, next to 2K.
None of the games were scheduled for the event by their respective publishers ahead of gamescom.
Valve specifically has previously said it wasn't announcing any thing new at E3 - it has Counter Strike: Global Offensive launching next week.
A proviso on the document also reads "Information subject to change." and "Chance games are only in business area for specialist audience."
Press are attending gamescom today and tomorrow before it opens to the public on Thursday. We've emailed a gamescom representative for clarification.
So are the games above being shown behind closed doors, or is it all just wishful thinking? Have your say below!
