No Valve announcements at E3 2015

Valve has confirmed that it will not be announcing anything at E3 2015.
Don’t get your hopes up for a Half-Life 3 or Portal 3 announcement – or any other Valve title for that matter – at E3 2015 this year.
The developer has confirmed it is “not exhibiting” at E3 next week in a statement to GamesBeat, meaning no meetings and no surprise press conference appearances.
That means you won’t hear anything fresh about the HTC Vive VR headset either. Well not from Valve anyway.
It’s entirely possible that other third-party developers will showcase the HTC-made virtual reality headset, as Vive headsets have started shipping to developers.
That’s supported by the fact Valve isn’t listed as an exhibitor for the show on the official E3 2015 website.
Plus, Valve has a long history of not having much of a presence at E3. Aside from the fact Gabe Newell appeared during Sony’s E3 press conference back in 2010 to talk about Portal 2.
Since then, Valve has done little publically at E3, and it looks like this year will be much the same.

Although Valve may not have announcements at E3, it may well have some for us outside of the conference.
According to the latest rumours, the Steam Summer Sale will start on June 11 and run until June 20.
E3 2015 itself takes place from June 16 – 18, with press conferences running in the two days prior to the conference.
