Obviously this was, as it would be, a major surprise for you, and it will take a few days for you to calm and decide how you feel abou this. YOur feelings for you father will be based, naturally, on your experiences of him and how he treated you. This discovery provides extra information about him, but doesn't change who he was top you and with you.
So you both need time to digest this news. To then plan to meet this newly discovered half brother may be someting you will decide to do - and as you say, you need to take into acount HIS wishes and feelings, especially if he has not yet made this discovery. Maybe he has known about this all along, and you will only know when you are all three in direct contat.
I dont think we can predict how you will all feel - but this new information says nothing bad about the three of you, and just adds to what you know about your father. Maybe a letter would be a useful way of making the first contact with him ?
