Valve Wants to Start Making Games Again, Says Gabe Newell

Valve Wants to Start Making Games Again, Says Gabe Newell

"When I say we're building three games, we're building three full games, not experiments". However, over the past decade it's increasingly turned its attention to PC-based digital storefront Steam and its roster of competitive multiplayer titles like DOTA 2. In a January 2017 Reddit AMA, Newell did confirm that Valve was working on at least one fully-fledged singleplayer game.

There was a special viewing of their Dota-inspired card game Artifact in which Newell himself talked about the process of creating this particular title and how it has inspired them to get back up on that bike of game creation, "Artifact is the first of several games that are going to be coming from us", he stated. So that's sort of good news. "Artifact is the first of several games that are going to be coming from us". That is something which most of us were already expecting. Newell's comments seem to suggest that the company is focused on fusing its newfound hardware expertise with its renowned software development teams, which could rule out consoles entirely.

Newell noted that the move was influenced by Nintendo's ability to work on hardware and new games. Five years ago, we didn't have electrical engineers and people who know how to do robots.

"It feels like we've been stuck with mouse and keyboard for a really long time and that the opportunities to build much more interesting kinds of experiences for gamers were there, we just need to expand what we can do". "So that added to that". It's that element of success, especially in the wake of the Nintendo Switch, that more and more companies are looking to Nintendo once more for inspiration, and Valve is no exception.

It's important to note that Newell said games, so that should mean Valve will be shipping something after Artifact.

"When Miyamoto is sitting down and thinking about the next version of Zelda or Mario, he's thinking what is the controller going to look like, what sort of graphics and other capabilities", explained Newell. And he can make the hardware look as good as possible because he's designing the software at the same time.
