Titanfall installments...

 

I thought they were building the engine for VR?

I thought Valve also mentioned having some internal IP in development for VR?

Titanfall as far as I know only has bits of it in their engine, but in any case that's not their game so it wouldn't be the driving force. VR in general and to entice people to use it as long as they distribute the games on Steam makes some sense to keep the platform thriving, but was that really what they were thinking about back in 2011 when they started work on Source 2?

Every time there is a thread about Valve, people always hypothesize what it's like to work there. Why doesn't anyone go to Glassdoor and create an account to find out?

It's spelled out very clearly there: there is no traditional hierarchy. Every person is a "manager" and if you want to create something, all you have to do is gather some people and start to work on it. How can anything get done when you have self imposed guidelines and everyone is an equal? It's seriously a miracle they got Steam OS and Steam hardware out there as far as I'm concerned. There are also lots of reports of Gabe not showing up to meetings so he can stay in and play Dota 2. I don't understand why people have so much interest in the company or Half Life 3 still.

The guy that left is a writer, he could have had the story for HL3 done over a year ago. This means NOTHING as far as games go.

If Dota2 is any indication Source 2 doesn't seem that impressive compared to its contemporaries anyway.

The numbers speak for themselves.


Wrong, most of the ideas and bases are user-created titles. I would be more inclined to call them an investment firm/distributor more than a video game development company.
