Half-Life: Alyx Was Apparently Pulled From The Game Awards Last Minute
In a rather surprise turn of events, Valve recently decided to reveal a brand new installment in the Half-Life series. While it is not the third entry fans have wanted for so long, and it is a VR title, it’s still exciting to think about the possibilities that may spawn from this. That said, Geoff Keighley had stated that more would be shown at The Game Awards, but it was apparently pulled at the last minute.
Hours before the show took place, Valve sent out a tweet that fans were not expecting. In said tweet, the developer revealed that Half-Life: Alyx would not be present at the awards show and that they will be showing more next year prior to the game’s release.
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!

According to Valve insider Tyler McVicker, who is also the host of the Valve News Network YouTube channel, Valve seems to have pulled the Half-Life: Alyx gameplay from The Game Awards due to Boneworks, another VR title. In the video released by McVicker, he points out that Boneworks, which features fantastic physics and full locomotion movement, was released just a couple days prior to the big show. Alyx, however, features teleportation movement at this point in time, with full locomotion movement planned for release. Essentially, the Half-Life title would have paled in comparison to Boneworks had it been shown at The Game Awards.
Half-Life: Alyx is set to arrive in March of 2020 for PC. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:
