Left 4 Dead 2
Left 4 Dead 3 Spotted During Valve Studio Tour
Written By
View author's profile

Left 4 Dead 3 and Source Engine 2 have been simultaneously spotted and snapped on a computer screen during a tour of Valve's offices conducted for the DOTA 2 tournament.

The image appears to be a changelog pertaining to various Valve games, including most notably of all "L4D3". Is Left 4 Dead 3 currently in development? And is the absence of Half-Life 3 on the list an indication that we're still going to have to wait an eternity to see anything of Gordon Freeman's long-awaited return?

Whatever the case, this is quite telling. It looks as though a Source Engine 2 powered Left 4 Dead 3 could well be on the cards, and the smart money says it'll land on Xbox One if this proves to be legit. Watch this space.

Ahh come on! I think they've been in Nursery long enough to count up to three, maybe they were waiting for next-gen consoles?

Man I love Valve's games.

That is some impressive news.
Now they have to announce this and Half Life 3 officially.

@4 Agreed, and I don't even PC game much.

Hope there is a Left 4 Dead 3, I'd rather have that than Half Life 3 (please don't attack me).

Please Valve!! This got to be true. Also bring Half-Life 3 or Half-Life 2: Episode 3 either after Left 4 Dead 3. Xbox One must have them. 8D

love this game even though I have not played it a long time.. the community is really what ruins it for me though.. I always get the worse team mates ever! If true, hopefully they make new survivors again because I hated L4D2 survivors. I always thought time progression would be could for this game to mix it up a bit or just make it all gloomy like in L4D. I got my fingers crossed for this.

Valve cannot count to 3

Valve will count to 3 about the same time Street Fighter counts to 5.

I reckon this is just a cruel wind up on Valves behalf. We all know they cannot count to 3. Saying that, I would rather have Half Life 3 than Left 4 Dead 3.

@#4 That's true, but really most games that are developed with PC in mind are... Even Witcher was way better and I did play both. Still consoles are a nice alternative for someone without PC=) I thought Valve couldn't count to 3 LOL

@20, even if they were to release a Orange Box 2 with Episode 3 or HL3 for the X1 With or without L4D3, I'd still buy it. I was just thinking yesterday about going back through HF:Source and then starting HL2 again :D

After what they've done to L4D1 and 2, with all the patching and pointless updates, they can keep 3. Keep it in a sack, Mister.

This is a link to a countdown to the L4D3 supposed announcement. Also there is Vine of an Valve employee in an elevator hovering his finger over the 3 before quickly moving to L. If that isn't enough evidence, then I don't know what is.

What's the obsession with Half Life 3?
Have Valve ever actually said they're doing it or did HL2E2 end on a cliffhanger?
Hopefully they write an interesting lead character this timeamiriteamirite

On topic: Cool. Loved L4D2, looking to see what they've done with the thing. :)

Sod the lot of that rubbish, cancel everything, all I want is PORTAL 3!!! Portal is by far one of the greatest games ever made and I think they owe it to the world to create a Portal 3 for the consoles!

Long live GlaDos!

I won't even let myself get excited for this. I bet if you opened the file it's just a laundry list of reasons of why Valve doesn't support their games on consoles and why they don't want to next generation.

This can't be real!
I'm sure that those at Valve used to be sound technicians, as they too can only count to 2.

I'm not sure why Valve would want to release a third L4D game when they're constantly updating BOTH the first one and second one.

I like L4D, but Valve need to fix the bugs, and create some decent DLC.

Half Life 3 will never be made. It cannot possibly ever live up to the standards that will be set for it. Valve knows that.
