Rumor: Left 4 Dead 3 Aiming for 2017 Release

by Joshua Russo



Express Gaming is claiming to have reports that with the departure of Valve’s lead writer Marc Laidlaw, the developer is focusing on making Left 4 Dead 3 its next release. It has been almost seven years since the release of Left 4 Dead 2 and at this point, fans would welcome any sequel from Valve with a 3 in its name.

The report also claims that 2017 is the target for the game’s release. In similar fashion to the previous two installments, Left 4 Dead 3 will feature three males and one female as playable characters. The characters are named Irvin, Garrett Jr., Keenan and Katherine. No Mercy, Cliff-Hanger, Early Destination, Crashland, Impasse and Inquisitor Land are the six reported campaigns that will be available.

Apparently with Laidlaw’s retirement from Valve, Half Life 3 has been put on hold pushing Left 4 Dead 3 full steam ahead. Valve has yet to officially comment on these reports.
