Update: The VR game is officially confirmed by Valve. News about it will be unveiled later this Friday, 2am GMT+8.

Original story:

Half-Life fans still waiting for a definite conclusion to Half-Life 2: keep waiting. Instead,  you might be getting a VR game instead starring one of the game’s iconic characters Alyx.

According to a transcript of a leaked interview meant for The Game Awards 2019 on  12th December, Valve will be releasing Half-Life: Alyx that will be the company’s flagship virtual reality game. The interview is between  Game Awards creator Geoff  Keighley, Team Fortress 2  co-developer Robin Walker, and an unnamed third person.

“March 2020.  Half-Life: Alyx comin’ out”, says Geoff in the interview. Here’s another  quote that refers to the  game’s playtesting and early builds:

“You can see their whole body– Respond to the situation. You know, panicking, dropping clips on the ground as they fumble their weapons ’cause a zombie’s in front of them, all these things, they’re just – it’s been really fun watching playtests.”

The leak is courtesy of the same sources who broke the news of Dota Underlords, so there’s a chance this rumour holds a bit of water.
