GR: "With how often Valve starts and cans projects, it's not unrealistic to think that fans might have to wait another decade before seeing Left 4 Dead 3 if it even ever occurs at all."
Valve can't count to three, remember?
I came here to say exactly this.
Dying light set the bar for Co op zombies games for me so I don’t really worry about left 4 dead anymore. Looking forward to Dying Light 2.
Dying Light 2 looks really really good. Entirely different kind of game and experience though. Not about setting any bar.
I do agree that Dying Light is an amazing co-op zombie game and in the long run it does offer much more. But L4D is a totally different experience and type of game. It's very hard to say you won't play one because you have the other.
True definitely agree @Corndog
I think they are smart not to make 3 or count past 2 if they cannot make it amazing. This is an example of a potential sequel that is already crushed by it's own hype. I honestly think everyone who would have been interested in this game still are but aren't holding their breath for it.
Oh shit! Lmfao What a waste of talent steam has...
Hey remember when nobody wanted 2? The first game was great but pretty bare bones. The second "game" should have just been DLC for the first one. Let's not do this all over again unless 3 contains all the content from the first two small games.
Valve are the inverse of EA. They create great franchises and then just say "no that's enough!!! No more candy for you!"
The fat bastard ate all the candy as well as someone else's.
The studio that made left 4 dead are making a l4d game right now. It’s not called l4d but that’s what it will be. That announcement was awhile ago so it shouldn’t be too much longer. Probably next gen with the crossplay.
Yeah, it's called Back 4 Blood and is a spiritual successor. I haven't seen anything more than concept art yet though
good you cant keep waiting too.
I really want Left 4 Dead 3 I enjoy Left 4 Dead on Xbox 360 Xbox 1 and pc I use to love getting drunk and running the game. Only thing I hate is why can't I pick myself up most people now just leave you and run a head.
It's basically in the realms of HL3 now, maybe they'll complete it and release it after HL VR or whatever it is they're working on. The game itself though has a lot of potential to make it more replayable, more weapons and upgrades, more types of bosses and special infected, multiple escape points and routes along the campaigns, smarter AI or with AI learning? Heck there has to be a game which uses that at some point, they've already used some self learning to control bots against real players in a few games.
No thank you. Left 4 Dead can be just that. World War Z and Dying Light is where it’s at now.
I talked to Gabe once and asked him to tell me why he was afraid of the number three. He then proceeded to tell me how it was a long and fascinating tale and if I had time he would discuss it with me over lunch. I accepted, of course, because Gabe's an interesting fella. He told me of a research facility and how a man that was once his "G" always watches him now, giving him moments of intense paranoia to hide his ideas in an orange box that houses plans for a zombie apocalypse that only he and a team of 3 others could counter-strike if the G-Man took it. As it happened, that very day, Gabe's fear was realized because the G-Man actually got it! Slipping through a portal he created. I thought this all weird, as any normal person would, but he leaned in and asked for my help. A little in shock, I accepted, unable to bring myself to the conclusion that it could be a joke, or even, just maybe, this was real. We would call ourselves Team Fortress, and we would launch our attack when he got back from the bathroom. And as it turns out, he's a ****, and I paid for lunch.
