One of the most well-known faces by the developers who work with Vive, leaves his position at Valve after 12 years in which he has participated in the creation of hardware and software.
Chet Faliszek, writer, developer and the public face of Steam VR for developers, has left his position at Valve, GamesIndustry has reported. Faliszek leaves his position after 12 years in which he has participated in the creation of titles such as the two episodes of Half-Life 2, the two installments of Portal and the also two parts of Left 4 Dead. In addition, he has been one of the ambassadors and creators of SteamVR, being present at the vast majority of fairs and events. We ourselves had the opportunity to meet him in person at Gamescom 2016 after interviewing Ryan Hoopingarner, from HTC Vive, and on occasion we have shared some of his reflections.
Faliszek has made it clear that there is no problem with Valve and that his departure is simply due to the fact that he is looking to change his life, so there is no drama or anything exciting to tell.
“I’ve worked there 12 years, we’ve released a lot of great games and amazing hardware and I wanted to change things”
We may see Chet Faliszek involved in something related to virtual reality again, given his great passion for this new medium, although he has not announced that it will be the next thing he does.
Valve, for its part, continues to develop the new Lighthouse base stations, new motion controllers and three virtual reality games that will arrive soon.
