Vive manufacturer HTC said that it hopes to see Valve games, including Half-Life, on the virtual reality headset.


Speaking to the BBC, HTC chairwoman Cher Wang said that Valve is keen on having its games available on the VR headset.

“I think Valve’s best game is Dota, right, and Portal and [Team Fortress] and I think they are very keen to have them,” she said.

When asked specifically about Half-Life, she said: “We are co-operating with Half-life, and I think… I hope, you know, it will be on it.”

A Vive port of earlier Half-Life games is certainly feasible, but what about a fully-fledged Half-Life 3 for VR?

Earlier this week, HTC announced Vive, the new VR headset produced with the help of Valve. This could be one of the many collaborations we hear about this week in Valve’s SteamVR initiative.
