Little was provided outside of a unique graphic aligning Valve, Steam VR, and the Half-Life logo. The title is tentatively expected to come out in March 2020, according to PC Gamer.

Jacob started covering video games and technology in college as a hobby, but it quickly became clear to him that this was what he wanted to do for a living.

While obviously, a VR title was unexpected, any update on the franchise has fans extremely excited and anxiously awaiting any further information.

Keighley then goes on to ask why the game is only playable in VR, and the unidentified third party responds "you can see their whole body- respond to the situation".

Half-Life: Alyx is rumored to be announced this week, with Valve reportedly set to reveal the VR successor to Half-Life 2.

After months of speculations, Valve Software has finally announced and confirmed the arrival of a new Half-Life game-the first one in over a decade-entitled Half-Life: Alyx, and will also be Valve's first flagship VR game. The reason this particular Half-Life rumor has gained traction over the countless other Half-Life rumors over the years is that it comes from two well-known Valve leakers, and follows a pattern of recent rumors and reports about this unique next step for the Half-Life series.

The official reveal of the game will take place this Thursday, with more to be shown at The Game Awards on December 12. If you've played HL2, you're likely aware that the game features a unique weapon that allows you to manipulate the environment-the Gravity Gun. "Instead of stepping forward in time, HLA will rewind to the period between the first two mainline Half-Life games".

On the confirmed front, Valve has talked about how it's working on major VR video game projects.

So what can we expect from the upcoming game? You can thank us later. Perhaps we will find out on Wednesday if, as the Reddit poster claims, an announcement is coming.

"But I think people probably wonder, okay, moving forward does this mean that Valve now is just making VR games?" said the unnamed speaker, which is presumably Gabe Newell.

However, the fact that Half-Life: Alyx is a VR game has put a damper on some fans' enthusiasm.

However, we will have to wait until Half-Life: Alyx is unveiled to know how it will fit into the story.
