Despite Valve being extremely silent with regard to the production and even the confirmation of a supposed “Left 4 Dead 3,” one their employees may have slipped up causing fans of the franchise to anticipate the arrival of the title.
As it turns out, Valve conceptual artist Tristan Reidford was hosting a workshop online when some of the attendees noticed a “Left 4 Dead 3” folder on his desktop. When the onlookers decided to ask him about the folder, and whether the game is really in development or not, Reidford became cagey. He then immediately deleted the folder or renamed it, as it had quickly vanished from his computer’s desktop. Unfortunately for him, the incident has already started buzz that while Valve remains to be coy about the aforementioned game, it will somehow be announced sooner or later.
Meanwhile, there has been buzz that the only reason that the game developer is trying to keep “Left 4 Dead 3” tightly under wraps is because they do not want to be pressured into launching the game before its completely ready. Valve is rumored to be giving the same treatment to the equally anticipated third installment of “Half-Life.”
Interestingly enough, this is not the first time that an insider from Valve has somewhat hinted at what the company is planning for the first-person video game series. Back in 2014, the co-creator of “Counter Strike” Minh Le was quoted by RGN saying that “Left 4 Dead 3” looked great. Given that it has been a couple of years already, fans are more convinced that the title is almost nearing its completion.
“Left 4 Dead” is a cooperative first-person shooter game infused with survival horror key points which quickly became a hit to gamers. The first iteration of the game was released in 2008, followed by sequel in 2010. The franchise as a whole has received highly positive reviews from critics citing the balance of its narrative and mission.
