Portal and Half-Life studio Valve today launched a teaser website with a message that reads, "The Steam universe is expanding in 2014." A countdown clock states the announcement will be made on Monday, September 23.
"Last year, we shipped a software feature called Big Picture, a user-interface tailored for televisions and gamepad," Valve said. "This year we've been working on even more ways to connect the dots for customers who want Steam in the living-room."
"Soon, we'll be adding you to our design process, so that you can help us shape the future of Steam."
A Valve representative confirmed that the company will make three announcements next week, the first of which will be on Monday morning.
"We will be talking next week about the steps we're taking to make Steam more accessible on televisions and in the living room," the representative said.
Earlier this week, Valve head Gabe Newell teased a hardware-related announcement for next week, saying, "we're going to be rolling out more information about how we get there and what are the hardware opportunities we see for bringing Linux into the living room."
