Valve’s Left 4 Dead 3 may get a release date in 2017- new character details revealed too








BY AMIT BARAN ROY   |   It has been quite a long time since Valve has released their last Left 4 Dead title back in 2009, i.e left 4 Dead 2. Since then, no major progress took place regarding the launch of the 3rd title in the franchise. Also, Valve has been really quiet for the last two and half years without any major release. The last known major release by Valve was ‘Dota 2’ in July 2013. What’s more, the recent news of the resignation of Marc Laidlaw, the lead writer of Half-Life series at Valve, has more or less suppressed the rumors regarding any possibility of Half Life 3 in coming years. So, a rumor regarding the possible release of Left 4 Dead 3 in 2017 looks very much positive.

According to this report, it is rumored that there will be 4 new characters that will feature in the upcoming release. Out of the 4, there will be one sole female who has already been given the name as ‘Katherine’. The rest of the 3 male characters, includes gangster Irvin, comic book nerd Keenan and famous Kenpo fighter Garrett Jr. It is also strongly believed that there will be six separate campaigns to play namely, the well-known No Mercy, Cliff-Hanger, Early Destination, Crashland, Impasse and Inquisitor Land.


Earlier, in January 2015, there was also a strong leak regarding the making of Left 4 Dead 3. It was claimed that pictures of Left 4 Dead 2’s maps were being remade in a new engine, possibly Source 2.0, on which Valve was supposedly working on.

However, some time back in a Xbox post, it was confirmed that Turtle Rock won’t be working on the 3rd installment of Left 4 Dead. Turtle Rock Studios' co-founder Phil Robb said :-

It’s Valve’s thing now. We’ve kind of gone off in our own direction. So I’d kinda like to see something new being done with it, and Valve always does great stuff, but it’d be cool to go back to it as just a fan and not a developer. But I doubt you’ll see anything from us.




We are speculating that Left 4 Dead 3 will be coming on PC, PS4 and Xbox One only. But, it is yet to be confirmed. Additionally, Valve News network had released a media regarding the rumors of Left 4 Dead 3 that went viral on Steam groups. Enjoy the video and stay tuned for further updates.
