HTC’s chairwoman has said that she hopes to see a virtual reality Half-Life developed for the firm’s upcoming VR headset.

In an interview with the BBC, Cher Wang said that the electronics giant is “co-operating” with Valve on Half-Life, adding that the developer is “very keen” to get Dota, Portal and Team Fortress running on the unit.

“I think Valve’s best game is Dota, right, and Portal and [Team Fortress] and I think they are very keen to have them,” she said.

“We are co-operating with Half-life, and I think… I hope, you know, it will be on it.”

Developed in partnership with Valve, the HTC Vive looks set to be one of the first major virtual reality headsets available in stores, with a consumer release expected before the end of the year.

But will it ship alongside a virtual reality Half-Life? Valve boss Gabe Newell is reported to be speaking at GDC later this afternoon where we’ll hopefully have some more answers.
