HTC has misspoke when it talked about Half-Life coming to VR headset Vive.


HTC chairwoman Cher Wang has apologised over the comments she made yesterday about the possibility of Half-Life coming to Vive, the VR headset it’s manufacturing with the help of Valve.

Sources close to Valve, have indicated to the BBC that the developer is not working on a VR version of Half-Life at this time.

Ms Wang has since provided a statement to BBC regarding the confusion.

“Regarding my BBC interview with Dave Lee yesterday, I would like to apologise for any confusion caused when I referred to individual games titles,” she said.

“In response to a question on specific games, I misspoke when I referred to our working together with Valve on a particular game, when instead I meant our collaboration with Valve on developing next-generation virtual reality experiences for gaming.

“I am very excited about the work we are doing with Valve, and look forward to bringing our HTC Vive to market later this year.

The confirmation was tenuous to begin with, but anything to keep us hopeful, right?
