Valve boss Gabe Newell will deliver DICE’s keynote address, the show’s announced.

No details of the talk have been given, unfortunately, so it remains title-less.

“Gabe Newell and Valve have become a force for innovation in gaming over the past a decade, creating some of the best-selling games of all time and a ground-breaking platform for PC entertainment,” said Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences president Joseph Olin.

“His perspective and vision of the games industry are a welcome addition to this year’s D.I.C.E. Summit, and will greatly contribute to the high-profile line-up.”

DICE takes place in Las Vegas from February 17-20. For a list of confirmed speakers so far, hit the break. Thanks, GameDaily.
