Valve is working on a new single-player game – and something with Half-Life / Portal.

In his AMA on Reddit, Valve CEO Gabe ‘Gaben’ Newell announced that Valve is working on a single-player game. More information does not release Valve’s chief. It could therefore be a completely new IP, or perhaps a follow-up to an existing franchise such as Portal or – very maybe – Half Life.

Valve invariably continues to support its existing blockbusters like CS: GO and TF2, but hasn’t released a new full-fledged game since Dota 2. This may change now, because Gabe Newell has announced in his AMA on Reddit that (part of) Valve is working on a new single-player game. In the answer, Gabe does not tell ‘Lord of the Sales’ Newell which game it is, or even which franchise, but in the rest of the AMA we find some hints as to what this game could be.

Later in the AMA, the Valve boss answers the question whether there is a chance of a new IP in the Half-Life / Portal universe. Gaben here confirms the arrival of a movie that takes place in that universe and that there is indeed a chance that something new will ever come into the Half-Life / Portal universe. Gabe is notorious for answering questions like this vaguely, as it goes without saying that there is a chance of a new product from Valve surrounding that universe. Whether it is the movie or a new game, when it comes out and in what form Gabe ‘Dont call me Gaben’ Newell leaves completely in the middle.

If you don’t have time to read the entire AMA, we have a brief overview of the most important questions and answers here, in which Gabe explains, among other things, that a Valve VR game is in the works for the Vive and what the plans are for Steam in the future:
