They blew their goodwill a long time back as far as HL goes. Pushing out some VR promotion and slapping the HL tag on it doesn't really cut it when we are talking about a franchise they just let die on the vine for a decade, least of all when the basically didn't even have the decency to wrap up what they started with the episodes. They want to buy some goodwill? HL1 + Hl2 + EP1 & 2 remasters with 3 as the cherry on top using the lastest Source tech.
Maybe they are in a financial position to make the games they want. Half life was always about immersion, so after playing top tier VR games I can see the fit. You can do everything and more than you can with a traditional shooter, but the immersion is 100x. At least.
Of course making money is important, not saying it isn't, and maybe they see it as a way to sell headsets too. But the first time I played VR thought. "Damn. Imagine half life like this."
