    Valve Has Literally 3 AAA VR Games In Development (Newell Quotes Miyamoto)

    As part of a press briefing at Valve's office in Seattle today, company founder Gabe Newell has been discussing the state of the company and its foray into VR, confirming three new VR-specific games in development at Valve.


    Talking to a number of press outlets, including Gamasutra, as part of a detailed roundtable on VR at Valve, Newell explained of Valve's foray into the space with the VIVE - and continued hardware experimentation:

    "So one of the questions you might ask us is 'Why in the world are we making hardware?' So right now, we're building 3 VR games. And what we can do now is to be designing hardware at the same time that we're designing software. This is something that Miyamoto has always had, right?"


    Newell continued: "[Miyamoto] has had the ability to think about what the input devices & the design of systems should be like while he's trying to design games. Our sense is that that's going to allow us to actually build much better entertainment experiences for people."


    "So the idea isn't like oh - we suddenly thought we could make more money by building hardware - because hardware's actually traditionally been a lousy low-margin business."
    Newell and team did later confirm that these were not smaller experiments, but intended to be new "full games", as opposed to the vignette-style demonstrations shown in Valve's The Lab. Valve expects to sell these new games, and is using both Unity and its own Source 2 engine to develop them.

    The biggest thing to take-away from this is that Newell and Valve can actually count to three.

    Valve is still making games? If they wanna sell VR just make HL3, Portal 3, and L4D3 all for Vive. Though portal will probably be vomit inducing with how much flying through the air you do in that game?

    Half-Life 3 will be VR-only. You'll have to buy an $800 Vive just to play it, and it won't work on Oculus Rift.

    Honestly don't care about VR, I hope those games are playable without the headwear.

    And we complain about Switch which only costs $300 that has 4 or 5 compelling games coming to it. Meanwhile in Vive-land you spend $800 get nothing for years and then 3 games from Valve eventually

    Lol. I was wondering why you put the word "literally" in the title. I didn't catch that it was by design.

    I find that the word "literally" adds nothing to the thread's title.

    Without "literally," it would just be Half 3.

    Exactly. Valve is more likely to make a game called Half 3 than Half Life 3.

    They already did that with HL2.
