Earlier this week the internet was ablaze with a rumor of Apple CEO, Tim Cook visiting Valve. As of now, we can totally disregard the rumor as Valve’s CEO, Gabe Newell, has debunked what many were praying for.
Seven Day Cooldown hosted a podcast interview with Valve’s CEO, and he cleared up the supposed visit and rumor of console talks between Apple and Valve. Gabe did admit he wished the rumor were true.
“No one here was meeting with Tim Cook or with anybody at Apple that day. I wish we were! We have a long list of things we’d love to see Apple do to support games and gaming better. But no, we didn’t meet with Tim Cook. He seems like a smart guy, but I’ve never actually met him.”
Well, it seems a console is not currently in the works between Valve and Apple. This does not mean these two super powers will not be working together in the future, it just means not right now. Bummer for sure, but we will keep our fingers crossed.
