HTC apologise over new Half Life game comment

Following the reveal of the HTC VR headset, they apologise for Half Life game hint.

When HTC revealed their new Vive VR headset in conjunction with Valve, HTC’s Cher Wang told the BBC she had “hoped” that a Half Life game would be released for the new headset.

This comment fuelled speculation that Valve were working on a new Half Life game which now been denied by a “source close to the US company”.

HTC has now apologised in a statement to the BBC to quash any further speculation.

“Regarding my BBC interview with Dave Lee yesterday, I would like to apologise for any confusion caused when I referred to individual games titles,

“In response to a question on specific games, I misspoke when I referred to our working together with Valve on a particular game, when instead I meant our collaboration with Valve on developing next-generation virtual reality experiences for gaming.

“I am very excited about the work we are doing with Valve, and look forward to bringing our HTC Vive to market later this year.”

PC gamers have been waiting a long time for a new Half Life game but we all know that unless confirmation comes from Valve then it’s unlikely to happen. The comments from HTC will likely have been said in the heat of the moment and therefore Half Life 3 is certainly not confirmed.
