It seems like you won’t be playing Left 4 Dead 3 any time soon. Valve has officially confirmed they are absolutely not working on the game. Past rumours have pointed to the possibility that the sequel to the 2009 zombie survival game could have been in development but it seems the studio has not been working on it for years.
Valve broke the news to IGN that stated;
Valve felt like it was necessary to release a statement due to new rumours circling thanks to HTC’s “2020 VR Trends” map that hinted at “Valve HL Alyx/L4D3” games. The hardware maker states that the upcoming Half-Life Alyx and or possible Left 4 Dead 3 will drive consumers and AAA studio interest to VR. This got people hot and bothered thinking that the studio was working on a Left 4 Dead VR game. Valve crushed not only those dreams but just those hoping for a sequel too.
HTC’s Alvin Wang Graylin posted an apology stating his mention of a Left 4 Dead sequel on his presentation was pure personal speculation and prediction and does not represent the official view of HTC.
The latest follows in previous L4D3 rumours that came up two days ago after a Valve News Network posted a leaked concept art which they believed was a screenshot of the upcoming sequel. Valve quickly shot that down too saying;
