Therefore, according to Valve, the Portal experience cannot work in VR


After Valve brought the legendary name Half-Life back to the scene after many, many years yesterday and presented a video that took our breath away, many people wondered why they didn’t do the same with the Portal series.

The question was answered by Robin Walker, one of the programmers of Half-Life: Alyx, to the staff of IGN magazine, who pointed out that earlier they also wanted to transfer Portal to virtual reality, they made several prototypes, but in the end they had to realize that current technology is not yet ready for this.

The developer said that no matter what they did, they couldn’t transfer the intense and dynamic experience of the Portal series to virtual reality, so they abandoned the idea for the time being, which of course does not mean that there will never be a Portal VR, but for the time being it still needs to be developed technology needs it.
