Gamasutra's Alex Wawro writes about a recent press briefing at Valve's Seattle office. During the briefing, Gabe Newell confirmed three new VR games in development at Valve:

Gabe NewellSo one of the questions you might ask us is 'Why in the world are we making hardware?' So right now, we're building 3 VR games. And what we can do now is to be designing hardware at the same time that we're designing software. This is something that Miyamoto has always had, right?


Not small experiments, but full, commercial games that use Unity and the Source 2 engine. As Michael Larabel of Phoronix writes in response to this news, "given Valve's VR Linux investments, these new VR games should see Linux support".
