It’s no secret Valve enjoys trolling their audience, but seriously guys, Left 4 Dead isn’t just a game, it’s a way of life. So when you’re “a little coy” with the rumored collaboration, as Valve’s Chet Faliszek put it, you’re ruining lives. Speaking with PCGamesN, Faliszek said “We’re trying to be a little coy and a little fun because we want the communities to discover it.” Head past the break for more on this collaboration.
“[The project] is kind of akin to how in TF2 you might see some other games’ weapons get translated and put into that game. We’re doing something similar to that, but it’s a little bit more involved.”
Chet refused to give out any details regarding the project between Valve and Overkill Entertainment. “Again. I don’t want to give it away, because we want the community to explore and find it, but I want to make sure that people don’t think the prequel is coming. If that happens, then it will make this other thing we’re doing feel uncool, when the thing we’re doing is really cool. I mean, the problem is, if you make a rumor, and you can make the rumor anything, you’re going to make the rumor really, really cool. And that makes everything else sound less cool,” he added.
No Left 4 Dead prequel, sequel, or spin-off for us. Still, whatever they’re working on could be fantastic, it’s just not going to be quite as exciting as what fans of the two companies originally thought. Let’s have a moment of silence for what could’ve been.
