Valve hints about their upcoming VR Headset in the job hires
Brad Lynch, a well-known XR Analyst, who has disclosed full specs about devices such as Quest Pro, Meta Quest 3, and HTC XR Elite, recently shared some intriguing information on his Twitter about the company’s upcoming VR Headset, code-named Deckard.
In recent years, rumors and speculation regarding the Index’s successor circulated widely online, but the most recent updates have been especially intriguing.
A Valve employee’s LinkedIn profile highlights their experience with the company in terms of defining the architecture for displays and optics for the upcoming Valve Index products.
Given that one of the company’s employees confirmed that Valve is developing a next-gen headset, it isn’t too shocking; during an interview, Greg Coomer, Valve Product Designer, confirmed that the company is in fact working on a VR Headset.
Deckard Rumored Specifications
It is speculated that Index’s successor, the upcoming VR Headset from the company, will feature eye tracking, high-resolution micro-OLED displays with a resolution of up to 4K per eye, similar to that of Apple’s upcoming headset, Pancake optics, and a fully standalone mode that can run AAA VR games such as Half-Life Alyx.
The price and launch date of the headset is currently unknown, however, considering the rumored specs, it is highly likely that the price won’t be below $1,000. Additionally, the headset is not projected to launch before 2024. Valve is known for taking its time to create high-quality products and games.
The company is likely to release some top-tier VR games with the headset, as they did with Valve Index with Half-Life Alyx. To discover more about the upcoming headset, we strongly suggest visiting Brad Lynch’s YouTube Channel, which features detailed videos about the headset’s leaks.
