Valve’s long-rumored VR headset is finally real: the Valve Index, coming in May
02 April, 2019, 02:00
It looks like Valve is getting into the VR business without HTC sooner than we thought.
Though Valve have helped to pioneer numerous underlying technologies that are commonplace throughout virtual reality, the company has never had their own publicly available VR headset.
Details are pretty scarce otherwise, but it seems as though Valve is creating this on its own, as opposed to its original headset, the Vive, which made in partnership with HTC.
The biggest rumour that is floating around is that Valve is working on a new Half-Life game that will be released in the future, possibly with this new headset. And Valve also developed an unreleased set of VR controllers called SteamVR Knuckles.
In a move that caught many off-guard, Valve has just dropped a huge surprise on its community (or whatever is left of them). No!
As above, it all sounds entirely logical and it's nice to see Valve actually revealsomething about the device.
Valve's dedicated website for the new device includes no other information than the above image and the date "May 2019". As for the slider, it's most likely for adjusting the interpupillary distance (IPD) to allow the wearer to have a more comfortable VR experience.
The Valve Index might launch right around the release of Oculus' two new headsets, which puts both companies on interesting positions.
