Valve have three new VR games in development

Posted by , | Views: 14,956
It seems that Valve are going to continue their VR push as they have announced they have three more VR games in development. Sadly I'm a few hours late on this as Valve is US-based and I was asleep while they announced it.

It's no secret that the current VR games don't exactly push it forward, so it looks like for now it might be left down to Valve to get things properly rolling.

With VR support for Linux/SteamOS likely due this year, with Valve teasing VR on Linux (look at the bottom) I'm actually getting excited to try it out.

The games are intended to be full games, not smaller experiments and they will be using both Unity and Source 2.

I'm even more excited to see Valve back in the game-making business, especially if we're going to get some proper VR games from them.

At last month's Vulkan presentation at linux.conf.au by David Airlie (Red Hat employee who does a lot of GPU driver work) he said that Valve have the Dota 2 VR Hub working on Linux.

Now if these games were SteamOS, GNU/Linux exclusives that would be good. Yes I know this comment is not politically correct but we need to start some serious pushing if we want to get somewhere.

I guess I'll just be the guy to say what everyone's thinking.
I really hope one of those games as a 3 in it somewhere (They're making 3 games, is that a hint?). Valve does seem to have a track record for its new titles pushing the envelope, so it seems like the emergence of VR is a really appropriate time for them to pull it off again.

I think a Portal game can work well in VR and there is a good chance they will make it. I don't even think of Half-life, just do it or not, I don't care anymore.

Fortunately, I already am somewhere: at the place where I've got more good stuff to play than time.
Of course, even more choice would be great, but I'm relaxed about it, as it's already good as it is.
