It looks like Valve is giving Steam Dev Days a miss this year and things aren't looking promising for next year either.
Speaking on Twitter (below), the company’s Steam business manager Tom Giardino said that there would not be a developer event this year.
The event launched in 2014, when the company was talking about its Steam Controller and Steam Link hardware. The firm took a break the following year, saying it was hard to justify such an event when it didn’t have much to talk about.
In 2016 the event returned, with Valve showing off its HTC Vive headset, thus focused on virtual reality.
As you can see, thus far the company has held Dev Days every other year, so it not taking place this year is not exactly unprecedented. However, it nor returning next year might turn heads.
Definitely not in 2017 and not very likely for 2018. What sort of things would you want to hear about at any future Valve events or talks?— Tom Giardino (@tomgvalve) September 25, 2017
