Valve's Gabe Newell Says They're Back To Making Games

He explicitly said that it's "the first of several games" coming from the studio. "We aren't going to be talking about it today", Newell said, "but sort of the big thing, the new arrow we have in our quiver, really, is our ability to develop hardware and software simultaneously".

For the last few years, Valve has felt that the ecosystem of PC gaming was heading towards a more closed environment and had been focusing their energy on Steam VR and the Vive. "So we started to make some investments to offset that". "That's sort of good news!"

Valve held a presentation for its upcoming DOTA 2 card game spin-off Artifact yesterday, but the biggest news to come out of the conference was that Valve is getting back into the business of shipping games.

So. Half-life 3 confirmed?

On International Women`s Day researchers say they might`ve found Amelia Earhart`s bones
In July 2017, the History Channel posted a photo saying that there was a possibility that Earhart could be seen in the photo. Public and private search parties combed the surrounding areas for Noonan and Earhart's remains, but no evidence was found.

Half Life 3 has been eagerly awaited ever since Half Life 2 Episode 2 came out, and with rumors that the game has been cancelled for the foreseeable future and at least one reading of the game's script, many gamers are really wanting Valve to stop working exclusively with Steam and actually start to make games again.

Although this is the first confirmation we've had in some time that Valve was working on new software, we have had hints previously that something was in the works.

The announcement came as part of a presentation for Artifact, the "Dota 2" themed card game that drew fan ire past year when it was announced because it had the gall to not be "Half Life 3". This is thanks to the investments made for Steam VR and the Vive headset, which has given the company the chance to develop their own hardware expertise.

This was spurred because, "We've always been a little bit jealous of companies like Nintendo", as Newell puts it. "He can introduce new capabilities like motion input because he controls both of those things". Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below. "That's something we've been jealous of, and that's something you'll see us taking advantage of subsequently". He followed this up in a round-table interview with the media in February that Valve does have multiple games in development, with three of them being VR titles. We can design chips if we need to, we can do industrial design, and so on.
