Valve Corporation is an American video game developer and publisher founded in 1996 by Gabe Newell and Mike Harrington. The company is currently based in Bellevue, Washington.[1] Valve's first game was Half-Life, a first-person shooter released in 1998.[2] It received universal acclaim and sold over nine million retail copies.[3][4] Alongside Half-Life's launch, Valve released development tools to enable the player community to create content and mods.[5] The company then proceeded to hire the creators of popular mods, such as Counter-Strike, which became the most popular multiplayer first-person shooter for the next decade.[1]

Valve continued their trend of developing predominantly first-person video games in the 2000s with a number of critically successful releases. In 2004, they released the highly anticipated sequel Half-Life 2 through their own digital distribution service Steam. The game sold over 10 million copies and was met with acclaim. Valve released two subsequent episodes for Half-Life 2 and later packaged those games together with the puzzle game Portal and the multiplayer shooter Team Fortress 2 in a collection known as The Orange Box.[6] By the end of 2008, combined retail sales of the Half-Life series, Counter-Strike series and The Orange Box had surpassed 32 million units.[4] Newell also projected that digital sales of Valve's games would eventually exceed retail sales as Steam continued to grow.[4][7] In the late 2000s, Valve released two zombie-themed first-person shooters focusing on cooperative gameplay with the Left 4 Dead series. The company continued to release multiplayer games with the launches of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Dota 2,[6] both of which have large eSports communities fostered by Valve.[8] During the 2010s, Valve has focused on supporting their established multiplayer titles with regular content updates.[6][9][10][11] In the 2010s, Valve began investing in virtual reality and started to develop games and other software that make use of the technology.[12]

Valve is considered to be one of the most important and influential companies in the gaming industry.[13] The reception of their games, along with the creation of Steam, has prompted some publications to list Valve as one of the top game developers of all time,[14][15] and the most powerful company in PC gaming.[16] In 2013, Newell received a BAFTA Fellowship award with the BAFTA Games Committee recognizing the impact Valve had left on the gaming industry in producing critically and commercially successfully game franchises.[5]

Unreleased games[edit]

Several games announced by Valve as being in development have since been put on hold indefinitely. In addition, details on a number of unannounced projects from Valve have been revealed or leaked long after their cancellation.

  • Prospero – A third-person, exploration game with a science fantasy theme. The project was in development at the same time as Half-Life.[131] Prospero's development team transitioned to work on Half-Life, which had gained more traction.[132]
  • Half-Life 2: Episode Three – Announced in 2006 with a tentative release date of late 2007, this game was supposed to continue the story from Half-Life 2: Episode Two. Episode Three missed its release date and Valve had stopped discussing the project by the early 2010s and has now been described as vaporware.[79][133]
  • Half-Life 2: Episode Four – Also known as Return to Ravenholm, this project was in development by Arkane Studios around 2006–2007, however Valve decided not to take the project forward.[79][134] In 2012, Valve writer Marc Laidlaw confirmed rumors surrounding the project's existence and screenshots of gameplay later emerged in 2013.[134]
  • Untitled Half-Life 2 episode – In November 2005, Junction Point Studios announced that it was working with Valve on a game.[135] In April 2015, Junction Point's founder Warren Spector revealed the project was an episode for Half-Life 2. Development on the game had ceased when Junction Point signed a deal with Disney Interactive Studios to develop Epic Mickey.[136]
  • Untitled role-playing game – A fantasy, action role-playing game about fairies that was in a prototype phase and cancelled prior to Left 4 Dead's release.[137]
  • The Crossing – A first-person shooter developed in collaboration with Arkane Studios. The project was announced in 2007 and put on hold in May 2009.[138]
  • Stars of Blood – A space pirate game. In November 2012, Newell revealed the project's name and confirmed that it was no longer in development.[139]
