Submission + - Gabe Newell Confirms That Valve is Prepping Source 2 Game Engine for Virtual Rea (roadtovr.com)

An anonymous reader writes: In a Q&A session on Reddit last night (http://bit.ly/1drsQB1) with Valve's Gabe Newell, the founder confirmed (http://bit.ly/1cuD4md) that the company is in the process of getting the highly anticipated Source 2 game engine "working well with VR," with Valve's Alex Vlachos, Senior Graphics Programmer, apparently leading the charge. Still no word on when the engine may ship.

Valve, who is openly collaborating with Oculus VR, demonstrated a VR headset prototype in January at Steam Dev Days (http://bit.ly/1c9Dgqk). The company also launched a beta version of SteamVR which offers Steam's 'Big Picture' mode in a format compatible with the Oculus Rift VR headset (http://bit.ly/1dlWXcL).
