Valve is Working On a Free-to-Play Game

The developers of the Half-Life, Portal, and Team Fortress series are currently at work on a free-to-play game, according to Valve's Doug Lombardi.

In an interview with French site Barre de vie, Lombardi is asked whether Valve, having just begun offering free-to-play titles on its online shopfront Steam, was developing a game of their own in the field. To which he replied "Yes".

Pretty low-key way to kick that off, which leads to speculation that the company's upcoming DOTA 2 is in fact what he's talking about, especially given the fact League of Legends, DOTA 2's main competitor (being itself based on DOTA) is free-to-play.
