More Left 4 Dead 3 concept art has emerged as a notorious leaker claims developer Valve may have resumed making the game.
YouTube channel Valve News Network claims the studio started making Left 4 Dead 3 “in late 2011 or early 2012” before cancelling it in February 2017. VNN goes on to say that Valve has been surprised by the level of anticipation for Half-Life: Alyx and now wants more VR titles to satisfy customers. From that, the channel claims “there is a high chance Valve will be working on Left 4 Dead 3 again – and they may already have done that”.
It continues: “I have word that there were a few major meetings that took place almost immediately after the trailer for Half-Life: Alyx dropped that essentially caused everybody internally at Valve to change everything about their future plans for virtual reality, public communication, and game development in general.”
Separate to the apparently resumed Left 4 Dead 3 / Left 4 Dead VR, VNN has released “15 model renders of zombie heads” – but these models are before the cancellation of Left 4 Dead 3.
“A few people approached me with a leak of zombie renders created by Half-Life creature designer Ted Bachmann back in 2012” VNN said.
The original Left 4 Dead launched in 2008, before a sequel was released a year later. The series has been untouched since 2012’s Left 4 Dead 2: Cold Stream DLC.
