Valve Planning VR Headset with "Knuckles" Controllers, Half-Life VR

According to newly leaked images and independent sources who have spoken with UploadVR, Valve will be releasing a VR headset with a 135-degree field of view and resolution that matches the Vive Pro (1440 x 1600 pixels per eye). It will reportedly come bundled with the "Knuckles" controllers, as well as a Half-Life VR game that "could be a prequel rather than the much-anticipated Half-Life 3."

Valve currently does not sell a VR headset. Instead, the company partnered with HTC to release the Vive in 2016, and then HTC released the higher end "Vive Pro" earlier this year. Releasing its own headset would be a major shift in Valve’s strategy for VR, but the company previously shipped the Steam Controller and Steam Link devices. so it wouldn’t be unheard of for the privately held company to build and ship its own hardware.
