Half-life might work in virtual reality, or it might not. That’s Valve’s stance on the matter.
Announcement awaited Which game has the largest number of players? You can point to different types here, but still, in the end you would have to agree that at the top of the rankings will be Half-Life 3. The thread of the new adventures of Gordon Freeman appeared for one more time, and most importantly, finally, we can speak on the basis of the statements from manufacturer representatives.
Half-life 3 in VR: “We’re not saying no,” says Valve
Valve recently decided to cooperate with HTC and we have seen the result in the form of virtual reality goggles- HTC VIVE. The project is very ambitious and quite quickly after the release you want to see a lot of games using pink gadget. I have not had to wait for the question that it will also entertain the most awaited title Half-Life 3.
Half-life 3 in VR makes perfect sense and should definitely happen, but Valve says it hasn’t made any decisions yet.
“We’re not saying, ‘no’ but we don’t know what the right thing is [yet],” Valve programmer Jeep Barnett told Kotaku when asked about the possibility.“Our most precious resource is time, and we don’t have enough time for people to do everything. Would we like to make all of our franchises in VR? Absolutely. But we don’t have enough time or people. So we have to figure out what’s the best fit, what plays to the strengths of VR.”
Valve has tossed a couple of Half-life resources around while exploring different avenues regarding VR, Barnett conceded, but of course that doesn’t mean anything will come of it – just as the VR demo Valve is showing at GDC 2015, which is situated in Aperture Science, implies Portal 3 is going on.
Of course, the above words of the official announcement of Half-Life 3 probably far, but it’s good to know that the game scrolls in the minds of the representatives of Valve.
