Turtle Rock is to Valve what Santa Monica Studio is to Sony; one branch on a larger corporate tree.

Can't ge right. If Valve own them then why aren't they publishing this game? Why did THQ own the IP?

Valve actually shut it down, but the studio reformed itself. So its on its own now. So they can make whatever under whoever they want.

Turtle Rock were the original developers of Left 4 Dead, Valve took over and continued to develop on the game and changed stuff (character models etc) to make it look better.

Valve then developed Left 4 Dead 2, i am really looking forward to Left 4 Dead 3 on Source 2.

Valve bought Turtle Rock while they were working on Left 4 Dead before most even knew about the game. Transferred team to Valve South at some point. Then shut down Turtle Rock. Kept Left 4 Dead IP. Turtle Rock then reformed itself.
