There’s plenty of options available in the VR market for those looking for relatively cheaper hardware, and more are obviously going to come up in the coming months and years. If, however, you’re willing to shell out the cash, there isn’t much that beats the Valve Index in terms of pure hardware prowess- and it seems like Valve, too, might be looking to invest further in the virtual reality space.

As spotted by Upload VR, Valve has published a job listing for the position of Software Engineer – Computer Vision that seems to suggest that the company might be working on a new virtual reality headset.

“We are looking for versatile, self-directed software engineers in computer vision who can help us achieve the next steps in VR with millions of customers world-wide,” the ad reads. “The main scope of this position is to prototype, ship, and support consumer gaming products leveraging visual-inertial tracking (HMD and controllers), camera passthrough, environment understanding, eye tracking, and hand tracking.”

Valve has seen great success in the hardware market of late, with the Steam Deck in particular enjoying growing sales since its launch earlier this year. While the company has certainly made it clear in the past that it intends to keep investing in VR, it remains to be seen how it will choose to balance that against its increasing focus on the Steam Deck.
