Valve's first announcements about its upcoming, VR-exclusive game Half-Life: Alyx included a vague launch window of March 2020. In a world where Valve game delays are the rule rather than the exception, a lack of a firm release date was enough to make the developers' fans anxious about Valve Time rearing its head again.

On Thursday, Valve made weaseling out of its announced plans a bit tougher, as the company confirmed a firm release date for HLA: March 23, 2020.

The announcement first appeared on the company's social media feed, and as of press time, the exact date has yet to appear on either the game's official site nor its Steam sales listing. Today's news also came with a brief gallery of brand-new game images. While they don't point to any new gameplay mechanics, they're a welcome look into a virtual world that looks plenty authentic to the beloved Half-Life universe.
