Creator of Valve News Network Tyler McVicker in a new video on the project channel said that Valve did not expect such a huge success of Half-Life: Alyx trailer. Initially, the company thought it would finish developing games in virtual reality after Alyx, as it was watching the slow death of the VR market.

But the great interest in the Valve Index VR has put the studio in an awkward position – now the company is looking for projects that can be transferred to VR. Among them there is Left 4 Dead 3, which is the closest to the final product and also supports VR. Earlier McVicker reported that lines of Left 4 Dead code were noticed in Steam VR.

Another insider, Daniel Ahmad, confirms the strongly increased demand for the Index VR on Twitter, which has been on top of sales for several weeks. Valve stopped collecting orders for the device before Christmas.

Half-Life: Alyx will be released in March 2020.

    Valve already intended to release more vr games, and announced at the start of the year they had 3 in development. They are still accepting Index orders in the UK. This isn’t news, and it isn’t even correct.
