HTC’s chairwoman has apologised over comments made earlier this week suggesting that the electronics firm is “co-operating” with Valve on a virtual reality Half-Life game, stating that she “misspoke” while discussing the company’s partnership with the developer.

“Regarding my BBC interview with Dave Lee yesterday, I would like to apologise for any confusion caused when I referred to individual games titles,” Cher Wang told the BBC.

“In response to a question on specific games, I misspoke when I referred to our working together with Valve on a particular game, when instead I meant our collaboration with Valve on developing next-generation virtual reality experiences for gaming.

“I am very excited about the work we are doing with Valve, and look forward to bringing our HTC Vive to market later this year.”

Wang told the BBC earlier this week that Valve is “very keen” to bring Dota, Portal and Team Fortress to its HTC Vive virtual reality headset, later adding that HTC is “co-operating with Half-life, and I think… I hope, you know, it will be on it.”
