Hot off of the news of 2K’s announced E3 absence, Valve admits that the company will be a no-show this year as well.
ValveTime.net sent an email to the company inquiring on Valve’s close summer business decisions. These questions involved the Steam Box and the development of Half-Life 3. However, the third entry in the Half-Life series is still a mystery, as Valve’s reply was rather blunt.
Valve is not exhibiting at e3 this year.
Thanks for checking with us.”
Valve is one of the few gaming companies that has never had a huge presence at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, but the publisher’s lack of presence is strange considering the Steam Box, Valve’s attempt at entering console gaming, will be available to the public within a few months. However, E3’s biggest news stories are undoubtedly going to involve the PS4 and Microsoft’s next console. This is one of the reasons explaining why 2K and Valve are ducking out for the year and Nintendo’s decision to show less presence at the expo.
