Video game developer Valve has just released the first official teaser for its very own VR project. The image was posted on the Steam website, and features a black VR headset with the name “Valve Index” printed on the top of the device. There isn’t much more information on the website itself aside from a date: May 2019. Unlikely to be the release date for the headset given how little information there is right now, the May date will probably be an announcement date for more news on the release.
The teaser comes as no surprise given that most gamers have already known for some time that Valve has been planning on releasing a VR headset. Legendary co-founder Gabe Newell has also revealed to fans in a recent email that Valve has been working on VR games. There has also been rumors that Valve will be releasing its own controllers which probably will work in tandem with the Valve Index.
Perhaps the biggest rumor, however, is not so much about Valve’s VR line but their game titles: some believe Valve is currently working on a new Half-Life game, arguably one of the most anticipated games in recent memory. We’ll have to wait on further Valve announcements to know whether the game developer is really working on the beloved title or if the new game will use Valve’s own VR headset. Fans of the franchise or VR gaming should definitely stay tuned for more news to come.
