Left 4 Dead 3 Is 'Absolutely' Not Currently in the Works, Valve Says

If there was a Left 4 Dead 3, it hasn’t been in development at Valve for years, according to the company. In a statement to IGN, Valve has denied any development on a new Left 4 Dead title, such as Left 4 Dead 3, calling the recent rumors “misinformation.” “We’ve seen rumors to this effect for the last couple of months,” Valve said in a statement. “We did briefly explore some Left 4 Dead next gen opportunities a few years ago. But we are absolutely not working on anything L4D related now, and haven’t for years." [ignvideo url=""] “It’s clear some people are having fun creating misinformation to spin up the community and other outlets. Unfortunately, for now a new L4D game is not something we’re working on.” The statement follows recent rumors regarding Left 4Dead 3. Reports cropped up from YouTube channel Valve News Network claiming to have leaked Left 4 Dead 3 screenshots. Furthermore, An HTC representative from China published a recent talk they gave on VR that included a mention of “L4D3.” However, according to Valve, while there were some explorations into a next-gen Left 4 Dead title in the past, a new game in the zombie series is not currently in active development.

The VR-exclusive title will take place before the events of Half-Life 2 and players will take on the role of Alyx Vance. Half-Life: Alyx is coming out on all compatible VR headsets, though it has helped sales of Valve’s Valve Index headset. [poilib element="accentDivider"] Matt Kim is a reporter for IGN.
