Valve is teasing three announcements coming next week related to “the steps we’re taking to make Steam more accessible on televisions and in the living room.” On a teaser site posted today, Valve says “the Steam universe is expanding in 2014.”
“Last year, we shipped a software feature called Big Picture, a user-interface tailored for televisions and gamepads,” the site says. “This year we’ve been working on even more ways to connect the dots for customers who want Steam in the living-room. Soon, we’ll be adding you to our design process, so that you can help us shape the future of Steam.”
A countdown on the site has 72 hours remaining as of this morning, and Valve teases that “we have three announcements to make beginning with the first one on Monday morning.”
Last week, Valve co-founder Gabe Newell hinted that an announcement would come, noting that Valve would be “rolling out more information” about “the hardware opportunities we see for bringing Linux into the living room.”
