    Valve is the company behind some of the industry's most iconic titles, bringing classics like Half-Life, Portal and Counter Strike to players all over the world. Over the years however, the company decided to switch its focus to Steam and more recently, Hardware, leaving many players wondering if there ever will be another game from them after DOTA 2. Gabe Newell, president and CEO of Valve, revealed at a presentation that his company is getting back into developing new games, starting with the DOTA 2-themed card game, Artifact.

    Artifact isn't the only game that Valve has in its pipeline, as at a 2017 Reddit AMA, Newell said that there is at least one new fully-fledged single player game in the works. In addition, three big VR games will also be coming from them. When asked about specifics, Newell replied:

    Newell described Valve's focus on Steam and hardware as an investment in the future, saying that Valve has always been jealous at companies like Nintendo who are experts at developing hardware and software.

    What do you think? Is there hope for a new Half-Life, maybe?

    Back with kitty Zelda forever :D
    I never played Dota, but I do know where the idea was born
    The "Dota 1" is a still popular map on warcraft 3
    Since blizzard didnt say "All created map ideas are belonging to us", so some people decided to make it a whole new stand alone game
    I still play Warcraft 3 and see a lot of Dota player, but personally, I prefer Civilization Wars :)
