Rumours that Valve is currently working on a new Left 4 Dead game may have been gathering pace of late, but your hopes are about to be dashed; the company has now stepped forward to categorically state that it’s “absolutely not” doing any such thing.
Whispers of a new Left 4 Dead title have been heard from several sources in recent times. Back in December, Valve News Network’s well-connected Tyler McVicker told Twitter followers that “Left 4 Dead VR is real”, while, earlier today, Chinese HTC president Alvin Wang Graylin shared slides from a recent VR presentation making mention of Left 4 Dead 3.
Following that revelation, Valve has finally spoken up, presumably in an attempt to prevent fans from frothing themselves into an irreversible frenzy. In a statement provided to IGN, the company said it’s “absolutely not working on anything L4D related now, and haven’t for years.”
