‘Left 4 Dead 3′ Spotted In SteamWorks Database

L4D3B

If you’re a fan of Valve’s games — and really, how could you not be — you’re probably all-too-familiar with the company’s seeming inability to reach the number 3. With no third entry in the Half-Life, Left 4 Dead, or Portal series (I know, that last one isn’t completely fair) in sight, it’s almost as if Valve has something against trilogies. That may soon change.

A sleuthy developer may have stumbled across something that might hint at an in-development Left 4 Dead 3. The dev, who has since been banned for violating Steam’s Terms of Use, but not before he found the game listed in the SteamWorks database. “I brute forced it in a way, there were lots of interesting things I found. L4D3 was the most interesting although it hasn’t been updated in months so it may be dead.” More after the break.

It would seem almost stupid obvious to make a new game that’s both critically acclaimed and has sold a staggering 12 million copies, but that’s not how Valve works. To the frustration of many a gamer, they take their time.

    I really hope they make L4D 3, best zombie games in my book. I’ve also heard a real life movie is in the talks. lets just hope they don’t fuck the movie up. if it falls through…

    After investing an embarrassingly huge amount of time into l4d2, cough 2700hrs cough, I would love some fresh content. l4d2 was such a huge improvement from l4d1. Hopefully the third will really develop further on l4d2s major flaws…. Although those flaws mainly lie with the community itself and not so much the game.

    I’m not holding my breath on a quick release though. I also don’t mind waiting. I appreciate Valve and the fact that they take the time to make the game right rather than worry about how much mediocre shit they can pump out for profit.

    Also, I’M PLAYING THE LAST OF US AND LOVING IT. SO FUCKING EPIC. Ok, the end.
