Although announced last month, Valve’s Half-Life: Alyx was originally slated to make its big debut at this year’s Game Awards. The interview with Geoff Keighley, award show founder and long-time games journalist, was ostensibly released earlier than planned though after the transcript was leaked online back in October. Now, Valve says that the promised extra info on Half-Life: Alyx isn’t coming to tonight’s show as previously planned.
Keighley had mentioned on Twitter last month that more info would be coming at tonight’s award ceremony, however in a rare occurrence Valve actually communicated with the outside world, dashing hopes of any mention of Half-Life: Alyx tonight.
We're sorry to say Half-Life: Alyx won’t be shown at The Game Awards tonight. The team is hard at work on the game, and we’re excited to show you more in the new year as we approach the March release!

This is only one of Valve’s promised three VR titles, the first of which Valve said would come in 2019, although the timing may now longer be relevant, since the Half-Life: Alyx reveal specifies that it will arrive in March 2020.
We still haven’t heard anything about the other two games, one of which is rumored to be a VR version of Left 4 Dead, so there’s still no telling if Valve will be using the show as a venue to announce more VR titles.
In any case, we’ll be watching, and you can follow along with us via The Game Awards YouTube channel. In the meantime, check out the treasure trove of info that game from last month’s Half-Life: Alyx announce below:
