Valve Index 4 years later: the good, the bad, and the future of Steam VR

Four years ago today, on April 30, 2019, we were introduced to the Valve Index – an uber-impressive VR headset from the company behind the wildly popular Steam PC gaming platform.

The Valve Index was teed up to be a runaway success; not only did the headset arrive boasting a solid set of specs, but Valve was even reviving one of its most beloved franchises to help promote it with the Steam-exclusive game Half-Life: Alyx. Yet, despite the gadget receiving a lot of love from critics and VR fanatics alike, the Index hasn’t managed to capture the same wave of hype that has propelled the Meta Quest 2 (formerly Oculus Quest 2) into the mainstream. As such, there’s uncertainty over whether we’ll ever see a followup to the beloved Valve headset.
