According to the CEO of Origin PC, Valve’s Steam controller has been finalized and is ready for unveiling at this year’s Game Developers Conference in March.
“At GDC, they’re going to have more information,” Origin’s Kevin Wasielewski told GameSpot. “And we’ll be there. That’s the official stuff we can say. They came out with the controller, then they got some user feedback, and they had to revamp it; they got some more user feedback and had to revamp it again. So they went through that like three or four times. And now their controller is finalized. So now they’re going to production and at GDC is when they’re going to announce more stuff.”
We’ve seen the controller change multiple times since its original unveiling almost two years ago. It has had iterations with LCD displays, unique analog-less control schemes, and other elements not usually seen on a game controller. Heck, most of the usual components of a controller aren’t there, either.
Valve is focusing on their announcements at GDC (and presumably E3), opting away from hosting their own developers conference as they have in years past.
When the news from GDC 2015 breaks, we’ll be there to give you all the details!
