Valve may be planning to bring more of its Steam titles over to the console world. During a recent session at Sancta Maria College in Auckland, New Zealand, Gabe Newell was asked whether Steam would be porting any games to console or remaining firmly committed to PC, to which he replied: “You will get a better idea of that by the end of this year, and it won’t be the answer you expect. You’ll say, ‘Ah-ha! Now I get what he was talking about.'” One theory is that Valve might be developing a PlayStation VR version of its new Half-Life title, Half-Life: Alyx, while others believe that Valve could be planning a successor to its SteamOS-based Steam Machine. Valve previously released The Orange Box, Portal 2, both Left 4 Dead games, and Counter-Strike: GO for consoles.

At the beginning of this year Newell said in an interview that Valve currently has multiple games in development, adding that working on the single-player Alyx “created a lot of momentum inside of the company to do more of that.” Is it possible that Valve has its eye on console ports for this new wave of games rather than existing titles?
