After what feels like years of rumors, it's official: Valve is making a virtual reality Half-Life game.
Official word of the new title comes via Valve's (brand new, but verified) Twitter account, where the company is promising more details later this week:
While it's a bit curious to drop news like this as the first tweet from a brand new account, Valve's long-established official Steam twitter account retweeted it — so signs are pointing toward it being legit.
Alas, we know next to nothing besides the name — Half-Life: Alyx — until 10 am on Thursday. Will we finally get a proper conclusion for Alyx Vance, whose storyline ended so abruptly when Valve dropped the Half-Life storyline mid-sentence 12 years ago ?
Update: Here's the announcement!
