Valve Building Three VR Games
Valve Software is working on three full games built from the ground up for VR. The revelation from co-founder Gabe Newell came during a press briefing in Seattle and indicates how serious the company is in developing compelling VR experiences. The respected game developer, co-creator of the HTC Vive, is also developing hardware internally, including new smaller hand controllers. The prospect of three full titles developed in parallel to those controllers is an intriguing one.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg posted some photos showing the first look inside Oculus Research, the Redmond, Washington-based lab headed up by Michael Abrash. One photo in particular shows glove-based hand tracking research.
