Valve Wants to Start Making Games Again, Says Gabe Newell

The game became memetic immediately mainly for the crowd-spanning groan of disappointment that came after the reveal, but we have Valve making games again.

Last night Valve finally showed off Artifact, their card game set in the Dota universe. At a talk yesterday, the president said the company is "going to start shipping games again". It's not clear if this latest announcement is related to those earlier titles, but either way, it's good to know that Valve is back in the game making business proper.

However, such sequel theories, especially that of Half-Life, have always been speculated without any developments or announcement to support it. Now that's all out of the way, Valve feels it's in a space where it can flex its creative muscles once more and now has the hardware knowledge to create experiences that are rich and interactive "Now there's pretty much no project in the hardware space that we wouldn't be comfortable taking on", Newell explained.

Said in classic Newell form (he's known to be a bit cheeky), his commentary definitely did little to dampen that fandom flame. "When Miyamoto is sitting down thinking about the next version of Zelda or Mario he's thinking what is the controller going to look like, what sort of graphics and other capabilities, and he can introduce new capabilities like motion input because he controls both of those things".

It should be noted Newell didn't say anything about Half-Life 3, so... Newell also didn't say anything about any new shooters, so we likely won't be dealing with anything related to Half Life at any point in the future. The company is responsible for some of the most influential video games such as Half-Life, Counter-Strike and Portal. New skins, amiibo, and other peripherals to continue the hype of series that we love so much. We can design chips if we need to, we can do industrial design, and so on. And he can make the hardware look as good as possible because he's designing the software at the same time.

"You can see that Microsoft was like, wow, how can we make Windows more like [Apple]?"
