During a recent press briefing held at the new Bellevue's offices, Gabe Newell announced Valve is "back to making and shipping games", as reported by The Game Awards' host and producer, Geoff Keighley.

Yesterday, Valve revealed a brand new game, the Dota 2 themed card game Artifact, and it seems like this is only the beginning of a new wave of games coming from the developer of Half-Life.

"You can have a relatively new game like PUBG, and [.] they can capitalise on all the other multiplayer games, and all of the technology, [and] the fact that China is now a huge market for anybody who does PC game development", he said.

There will be no single-player campaign for the game, Valve have confirmed. Today's statement doesn't make it 100 percent clear whether Valve has projects in development beyond these previously mentioned games, but it is a possibility.

Newell elaborated that the company's switch in focus from games to hardware and technology following Dota 2's release was an investment to not let PC become a "closed, high margin ecosystem" like Apple's, accusing Microsoft and Facebook of wanting to do just that.

It should also be pointed out that there's now a Half-Life crossover with Final Fantasy XV in the form of a special outfit if you got the Windows Edition of the game through Steam. "So that added to that".

Said in classic Newell form (he's known to be a bit cheeky), his commentary definitely did little to dampen that fandom flame.

"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. The way Newell sees it, "nobody's going to buy a VR system so they can watch movies", so why would they do it to play the games they've already played? "So that is something we've been jealous of, and that's something that you'll see us taking advantage of subsequently". Going forward, Valve plans to develop hardware and software simultaneously, much like how Nintendo does.
