Valve “jealous of Nintendo” as it prepares to “start shipping games again” – Newell
10 March, 2018, 01:03
The game became memetic immediately mainly for the crowd-spanning groan of disappointment that came after the reveal, but we have Valve making games again.
Gamers might be familiar with the reveal of Valve's upcoming Defense of the Ancients card game "Artifact", which was unveiled at the DOTA 2 "The International" tournament a year ago.
PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is the third highest selling game in Steam's history, says Valve's Gabe Newell.
Speaking at a briefing for Artifact, which is not Half-Life 3, Newell said that the card game is the first of a bunch of new games from Valve. The founder stated Valve was doing triple-A single-player titles back in 2015, during a Reddit AMA with fans, and the engine Source 2 was announced on the same year at GDC.
Valve is making games again with a focus on VR, just don't expect Half-Life 3 just yet
"Hearthstone is a great game", Newell told us during yesterday's presentation.
"We've always been a little bit jealous of companies like Nintendo". So that's sort of good news. Not Half-Life 3 confirmed good, but good all the same. He explicitly said that it's "the first of several games" coming from the studio.
Newell then added during an interview with PC Gamer that Valve is working on "three big VR games". "He can introduce new capabilities like motion input because he controls both of those things". Excited to see Valve work on something other than hardware for once? "That really started to worry us", Newell stressed, "because we thought that the strength of the PC is about its openness.So we started to make some investments to offset that". That's four more in addition to Artifact, with a notable focus on custom hardware, so those could be the games he was referring to.
"It feels like we've been stuck with mouse and keyboard for a really long time and that the opportunities to build much more interesting kinds of experiences for gamers were there, we just need to expand what we can do". That is an understandable assumption, especially seeing as how Microsoft has been chasing Apple's business plan with Windows 10. "That's something we've been jealous of, and that's something you'll see us taking advantage of subsequently".
