This announcement is quite a surprise, given the recent layoffs at Valve affected many in the VR department. Till now, Valve, for its VR needs, partnered with HTC Vive. This will come to change with the Valve Index as the company’s solution to VR.

If the leaks surrounding the Half-Life prequel are legitimate, this will be the first Half-Life game in nearly 12 years.  There might still be hope after all.
