Valve Teases Index VR Headset

Valve Confirms Its Own VR Headset, Valve Index To Launch In May

Some investigative Steam users found a teaser page on the Steam site for the Valve Index, which looks very much like a new VR Headset.

However, the name is just about all we know about the new VR headset for now. Now they will try their hand at developing and producing their own virtual reality headset, called the Valve Index. In fairness, given the strength of their gaming platform on PC, a VR headset didn't seem entirely unusual.

Valve wasn't exactly forthcoming about what exactly the Valve Index is.

For several months now, rumors have been building about Valve working on its own virtual reality hardware - completely separate from the Vive, which was jointly developed by the game company HTC.

Valve's dedicated website for the new device includes no other information than the above image and the date "May 2019". No indication has been made about whether or not the SteamVR Knuckle controllers will be a part of Index, although an updated prototype was shown a year ago.

This year, Wccftech expects to see an even wilder field of view from the new headset after, UploadVR, another news publication, managed to get their hands on a few images of the VR headset a while ago. Fingers crossed we'll receive a bit more details about it over the coming weeks.

Until now, Valve was pictured as a helping partner to HTC to build its Vive headsets.
