Left 4 Dead 3? Sometime Down The Road

Left 4 Dead 3? Sometime Down The Road

Valve’s Chet Faliszek has gone on recording stating that Left 4 Dead 3 could happen later “down the road”, but warned fans not to expect it anytime soon, or at all.

Said Faliszek to Eurogamer:

A 3? You know, some time down the road,” he theorised, “Like anything, I would say that to all of our games. So that’s not a promise of when or where. I really love working on that series. It’s one of my favourite series. It’s just so much fun with the characters and the world. I love zombies and I love horror. So, yeah.

Valve’s become a company more focused on making its revered service, Steam, into a living room-friendly venture by integrating recently unveiled Steam Big Picture into the experience.

Said Valve’s Greg Coomer:

We’re confident in some things that customers want. They want a full-screen experience. They want to be in the living room. They want to use a game controller. They wanna have a social gaming experience. And we have this platform that lets us ship a significant portion of that experience.

The developer’s games have all been successful, but since Portal 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, nothing’s come out of Valve on the games front.

    personally a good business decision for valve would to bring Left 4 Dead 1 & 2 to the PS3.

    @Ghost: I couldn’t agree more.

    is there really enough audience to warrant the costs?
    theres already so many zombie games out there, so theres really no point valve bringing the series over.
    not to mention licensing issues.
    im really worried though because now every one of valves franchises is at 2, and as history teaches us valve cant count past 2!
    so that means no more portal, no more half life, no more L4D.
    just make another portal valve, if anything just to shut the fans up, to prove to them you can count to three!
    that and i cant wait to see my darling GLaDoS again!

    I think there is. The game sold well on Xbox 360, Left 4 Dead 2, so make the next title multiplatform and you have a winner on your hands. Plus it’s from Valve. That’s always a plus.

    im not so sure.
    if there going to bring 3 over they would have to bring 1 and 2 over and i just cant see the sales warranting the cost.
    too many games out there that offer the same as what L4D does.
