Valve is Not Attending E3 2015, No Surprise There

Valve has little interest in public appearances, or so they would have us believe. The company was recently emailed by ValveTime to ask whether they would be attending this year’s E3. The response was least surprising: “Valve is not exhibiting at e3 this year.”

One would have expected Valve to show up to at least talk about its new Steam Controller, the hyped up hybrid Steam Machines, and/or its virtual reality headset.

The last major E3 appearance from Valve was in 2010, where its co-founder and managing director Gabe Newell made a surprise entrance during Sony’s press briefing to announce Portal 2 for the PlayStation 3.

Coincidentally, at the time Valve made a similar statement of having no plans for attending E3. It could be possible that history repeats itself and we find Newell walking the stage again. Realistically, though, that seems to be unlikely. Which also means that you will have to go through another year without hearing about the confirmation of Half-Life 3.

Valve’s digital video game distribution platform, Steam, has over 125 million active users with roughly 8 million active accounts at any given time. While its financials aren’t public, the company’s yearly revenue is estimated to be in the low billions. Perhaps it’s these numbers that translate into Valve having nothing to prove by making a presentation at E3.
