Powered by SteamVR on Valve’s Source 2 engine, Alyx is set for release in March 2020 and will be compatible with Valve Index, HTC Vive, Windows Mixed Reality, Oculus Rift and Oculus Quest headsets, Valve said at the time.
“We believe Sony’s VR platform has been a huge success for the medium, and we assume that lots of Sony customers would love to experience this new chapter of Half-Life,” Valve’s Coomer has now told Push Square.
While he went on to add that Valve has “not ruled anything out”, Coomer confirmed a PlayStation VR port isn’t in active development “because we’re very focused on the initial release”.
PlayStation launched Its console VR hardware just over three years ago in October 2016. PlayStation VR sales topped 4.2 million units worldwide as of March 2019, according to Sony, which suggests that around 4% of PS4’s 100 million-plus owners have purchased a headset.
While Sony has said “the current PS VR headset is compatible” with PlayStation 5, a recently published patent suggests it may be preparing to release a next-gen PlayStation VR headset.
