Half-Life: Alyx is arguably the biggest virtual reality success to date. It’s a game that effectively utilizes the VR’s control capabilities. However, it has a limited market because it requires not just a VR helmet, but also a strong computer to run. That is why the release of Valve’s game for PlayStation VR2, the PlayStation 5 headset whose technical data we got to know on Wednesday, is a cause for celebration if it turns out to be true.
Shpeshal Nick, the co-founder of the Xbox Era podcast and a frequent leaker, came to Twitter to announce that Sony and Valve are working together to bring the Alyx Vance journey to PS VR2.
“I really wonder if Sony and Valve will work out a deal to bring Half-Life: Alyx to PlayStation VR2. It’s a must imo. It was by far the most revolutionary and immersive experience I’ve ever had in VR when I played it on PC.”
– One social media user speculates.
From what I’ve been told, they have. Not sure when it’s happening though. I thought this was one of those open secrets? https://t.co/RPrdPArDLc

Sony and Valve Partnership
- Although both companies have not partnered officially in years, the friendship that Sony and Valve have formed is not an unusual occurrence. Partly due to the fact that Gabe Newell’s studio hasn’t developed a new game since Alyx. Newell has also been vocal in his criticism of the PS3 and Xbox 360 system generations in the past.
- Half-Life Alyx is the Half-Life 3 that so many fans have been longing for. It’s exactly what we were hoping for with this supposedly third installment: a technologically groundbreaking game, a funny title full of novel concepts, and a tale that pushed Gordon Freeman and Black Mesa’s story to new heights.
