HTC and Valve for VR: Half-Life 3?
17 November, 2015

There’s a big story related to the Vive’s launch games… Half-Life 3?

If things work out, HTC and Valve will be the first to launch a full end-to-end virtual reality. VR industry has been on the rise in the past few years and the technology is up there to match the continual progression. You see this with Oculus, Sony, and Valve getting ready to give out their headsets next year. If VR doesn’t successfully launch this time, there’s a very small likelihood it ever will again. Oculus and Valve had a great partnership before Facebook went and bought Oculus VR for $2 billion. Oculus provided the hardware, and Valve provided software support.

The ironic thing out of this is that Valve is probably in a better position than the other companies because their headset is already almost ready to be on the market, there are controllers included, and it has a unique ‘room-scale’ tracking technology which lets you move around your room while playing. Next month there will be a limited number of Vives that will be released and a bigger release will be on March 2016. The thing is there needs to be some great experiences to go along with it. Good thing is it seems that Valve hasn’t spent the last three years just working on Vive and SteamOS. Maybe Half-Life 3 is coming to light or even a cool new Left 4 Dead. Nobody will find out until HTC gives word because they want to keep everything a surprise.
