Valve has officially unveiled Half-Life: Alyx, a new full Half-Life game that is played entirely in VR. The title will be released for all PC-based VR systems in March 2020.

So it's not Half-Life 3, but a spin-off, which obviously revolves around Alyx. Presumably you are steering the daughter of the scientist Dr. Eli Vance through her own adventure.

Half-Life: Alyx becomes a VR game. That means you'll need a virtual reality headset to play it. It's probably an exclusive title for Valve's own VR headset. Of course, Valve wants to boost headset sales with an exclusive game that appeals to many players. A new Half-Life is basically the perfect title.

Apart from the announcement that Half-Life: Alyx is coming and will be a flagship title for Valve, there is no information about the game yet.

However, this is supposed to happen next Thursday. Then Valve wants to introduce the game in full detail. So we just need a little patience until we finally learn more about a new Half-Life.
