There's no concrete evidence from the presentation that Valve is working on anything else besides the aforementioned VR games and Artifact, but it's still great to hear that a company with a storied history in game development seems to be back to doing what first made it such a beloved figure in the industry.

Last year in a Reddit AMA, Newell did confirm that Valve is working on at least one fully single-player games, in addition to confirming three VR games later in the year.

Valve, which has focused on its existing games and Steam's software and VR and controller hardware, has not released a new standalone game since Dota 2 back in 2013.

Valve isn't done with hardware though, but now it'll go "hand-in-hand with software design", meaning you should really keep an eye on what Valve is up to in the coming months.

Valve or Newell did not say anything about Half-Life 3 at any point during the presentation. "That's something we've been jealous of, and that's something you'll see us taking advantage of subsequently".
