Valve VR headset in partnership with HTC. I note the mention of the test level being on the deck of a ship.

The Borealis, perhaps?

HL3 is coming. Definitely. ¬_¬

That, and Source 2 officially confirmed now.

Gabe Newell held an AMA yesterday and said that Valve were working on a new IP in the Portal/Half-Life universe. He also said they were working on a fully fledged VR game. I would expect these to be one and the same thing.

He also talked about Source 2 being the foundation of a number of unannounced projects that teams were working on.

Bull-friggin-horseshit.

They're always talking a big game about secret projects. Nothing ever comes of it. Until they formally announce things I refuse to believe they're doing anything other than counting their cash and fiddling with VR toys.

I think their incredibly fluid work system works against them getting anything done. If people keep bouncing around between projects without any real oversight it would seem incredible easy to just ditch something when it gets hard, especially if you're hooking into someone elses idea rather than your own.

I dunno, if it works for them it works but it doesn't seem to be producing a lot.

I think it works for them in the sense that they could do precisely nothing other than maintain Steam and continue to make a fortune, which means in development terms they can bumble around doing whatever they fancy. As a means of experimenting and tinkering and playing around with new ideas, it's fantastic as that level of freedom allows for real creativity. As a means of producing releasable products, it's hopeless. If I were them, I'd have two partially rotating development areas - the current free-for-all they have now and a more formalised team that aims to actually produce new stuff. Developers could spend, say, two weeks on one area and then two weeks on the other area. That way they'd retain their creative freedom which I do think can result in some excellent things, but they'd also end up using those things in actual products which the public get to see and use and enjoy.

It's just going to be Portal VR is my guess.

I do think they are working on games, but as has been said with their very lax attitude to project management they just never get anything to completion.

It's a shame they don't release more stuff. I might be wrong but I'd imagine they sucking in a lot of talented people that probably get very well paid and lots of kudos for working with steam...but nothing seems to get released.

I read somewhere that Valve actually has very few developers working there these days. It's all artists making skins and hats.

A portal VR game sounds hideous - the achievements they would no doubt include could all be related to how long you can play without vomiting or simply dying of motion sickness.

Can't be arsed with VR yet myself. I doubt I'll dip in any time in the next 5 years.

If they can replicate the graphical fidelity of my monitor and if they can make the responses feel natural rather than slightly delayed, then I would probably take the plunge. I was a little tempted to do so just to get that extra level of immersion in Elite, but I don't put in enough time on it to make it worthwhile, thus the if's persist!
