Gabe Newell Says "Valve's Going to Start Shipping 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. Valve is looking towards Nintendo's approach, in which the game and the system it's played on go hand in hand.

At a reveal event for Artifact, a digital card came set in DOTA's universe and Valve's first full non-VR game since Portal 2 was released in 2011, CEO Gabe Newell had some interesting comments that are sure to immediately reignite conversation about whether we'll ever be getting the next chapter of the Half-Life or Portal games.

But she said it "totally works" for their sleeping patterns. "I'm always willing to try anything", Theron explained. It was during the premiere of her film " Gringo " that Theron learned where her mother really got the edibles from.

The reason that Valve hasn't been focusing on making brand new games, Newell says, is to do with its recent investment in hardware due to the HTC Vive. During the Reddit AMA back in January 2017, Newell said that Valve is working on at least one other fully-fledged singleplayer game. However, with those investments done, the company can get back to game development.

Is this a good news? Newell's statement doesn't clarify if there are projects in the works beyond those games, but nature of the statement does seem to indicate that there are things coming we don't yet know about.

New Windows 10 Cumulative Update now available with fixes for version 1703
Microsoft expects that Windows 10 S-mode enabled devices will start shipping in the coming months from its partners. The past two major Windows 10 updates have been named " Creators Update" and "Fall Creators Update" respectively.

Interestingly, Nintendo's game development prowess was one reason for why Valve made a decision to steer itself down such a winding path.

"We've always been a little bit jealous of companies like Nintendo", Newell said, according to PC Gamer. "When Miyamoto is sitting down and thinking about the next version of Zelda or Mario, he's thinking what is the controller going to look like, what sort of graphics and other capabilities". Newell also didn't say anything about any new shooters, so we likely won't be dealing with anything related to Half Life at any point in the future. And he can make the hardware look as good as possible because he's designing the software at the same time.
