Valve Corporation's long-rumored VR headset is finally real. The design of the Valve Index also matches the leaks. The teaser page spotted by Ars Technica yesterday notes that more information will be revealed in May 2019. That is, in conjunction with the Half-Life news, more than a little to look forward to! To make things clear here, this teaser comes as an official one from the markers itself.

Valve previously partnered with HTC for the development of Vive the headset and integrating it into the Steam ecosystem. This page also doesn't mention a series of three Valve-produced VR games that have been repeatedly advertised by Valve co-founder Gabe Newell since 2017.

The Valve Index might launch right around the release of Oculus' two new headsets, which puts both companies on interesting positions.

With the Valve Index scheduled to come out this May, 2019 is poised to be significant year for new VR consoles. The Oculus Rift S will be an upgraded version of the Rift that'll feature built-in tracking sensors, a higher resolution, and a more ergonomic head strap. Both Oculus headsets will launch at $400 United States dollars.
