This is what business development chief Jason Holtman told Eurogamer at the Develop conference in Brighton.
"Valve loves the Valve Time tag - so much so that it values it." Read on for a quote from the article.
"We also value it. If the end result is, we get tagged a little bit of like, we can't tell when you're coming out or you take longer, that's okay with us. Because we're trusting the fact that when it takes longer, it will be better.
The thing that is ultimately consumed and played with, customers will like it better - like it better than the thing we could have shipped them a year ago. We would infinitely rather have happy customers for decades, rather than a happy batch of customers at one Christmas. We try as hard as we can to make the best thing possible in the right time frame and get people content they want to consume. And if that takes longer, that's fine."
