Leaked photos suggest Valve is working on its own VR headset

Screen Shot 2018 11 08

An Imgur album popped up recently, showing a new VR headset prototype being developed by Valve.

Linked images via Reddit this week have revealed a new Valve VR headset which is now under development and includes PCBs printed with the valve logo indicating that valve may be producing the new hardware in-house.

It unveiled its first VR headset - the Vive - in 2015 and put the headset on sale globally in April 2016 and has since launched several other VR headset models such as the standalone Vive Focus and the Vive Pro to try to boost sales. Instead, it will be a Half-Life prequel game. Still, it could be an interesting experience, especially in combination with the Knuckles controllers that can track the positions and grips of your fingers. The twist is that the game will be entirely set in Virtual Reality. This means that if a Valve VR headset is in the works, we should expect progress and official announcements soon. It also seems to have two cameras visible and has integrated headphones.

Perhaps most interestingly, however, is that the same report claimed the headset could come bundled with a Half-Life game. This difference does highlight the possibility that if Valve is developing a VR headset in-house, they are doing it without HTC's involvement.

The photos of the prototype were supposedly taken in July this year. Although so far, Valve has been very quiet about any Half-Life or VR related projects. So this most likely will not be available for a while.

This would be a big deal for a number of reasons, not only would Half-Life make its long awaited return but it would also be a big push for the Source 2 engine. We would just have to wait and see.

Obviously, Valve-time is a real thing, so even if all of this is all legitimate information, it could still be a few years before we see any of it come to fruition.
