Valve have officially confirmed that Half-Life: Alyx won't be coming to PlayStation VR and will be available on SteamVR only. However, the company seem open to PlayStation 5 port in the future.
Ever since its earlier announcement, Half-Life: Alyx has been one of the titles that many fans would love to play right now. Unfortunately, the game will be available only on SteamVR, which means that PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners won't be able to play it.
In a recent interview, Valve once again made it clear that they don't have any plans to port Half-Life: Alyx to PSVR but it seems that the company may have some interest in PlayStation 5's VR device. According to Push Square, Designer Greg Coomer said that the devs are not working on PSVR version of Half-Life: Alyx but at the same time, they won't rule out anything just yet.
Coomer explained that the team is only focused on what's promised initially and that's Half-Life: Alyx on all headsets that support SteamVR. He also said that Valve assume a lot of customers would love to experience their upcoming VR title, which suggests that the company may have some additional plans, for the next-generation consoles.
"We believe Sony’s VR platform has been a huge success for the medium, and we assume that lots of Sony customers would love to experience this new chapter of Half-Life," Coomer said about PlayStation VR.
Of course, until we get official confirmation, everything regarding Half-Life: Alyx and PlayStation VR is just a speculation, but it's nice that Valve won't rule it out just yet. After all, Alyx is set to become the first AAA VR title and it safe to say that the company will try to offer it to as many fans as possible.
Thanks, Push Square.
