Left 4 Dead 2

With the return of the Half-Life series with the upcoming VR title, Half-Life: Alyx, it’s given renewed hope that more Valve games could be revived. The company was once known for several key multiplayer titles but after focusing on their Steam storefront, that part has largely been abandoned up until now. One franchise many hope to see brought back from the grave is Left 4 Dead with a third entry. There were some recent rumors to that effect, but unfortunately, it just got squashed.

In a statement to IGN, Valve dispelled recent rumors that a third entry in the zombie franchise is coming. While they did acknowledge that there had been some testing for a third game at some point, as of now there is no Left 4 Dead 3 in active development nor any game in the franchise.

“We did briefly explore some Left 4 Dead next opportunities a few years ago,” Valve said in the statement. “But we are absolutely not working on anything L4D related now, and haven’t for years.”

It is somewhat unfortunate, since there’s very few games quite like Left 4 Dead, but at least Half-Life is coming back. Maybe its revival will be successful enough that the undead series will rise again some day as well.
