Valve denies rumors about meeting with Apple

/ 7 years ago

Valve’s Gabe Newell has addressed rumours that Apple and Valve are up to something together by outright denying reports the two firms recently met.

Earlier this month it was reported that Apple CEO Tim Cook paid the house of Half-Life a visit. This led many to speculate the duo might be collaborating on the long-rumoured ‘Steam Box’ console.

However, speaking on a Seven Day Cooldown podcast, Newell quashed the rumour.

“We actually, we all sent mail to each other, going, ‘Who’s Tim Cook meeting with? Is he meeting with you? I’m not meeting with Tim Cook.’ So we’re… it’s one of those rumours that was stated so factually that we were actually confused,” said the Valve boss.

“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.”
