Left 4 Dead 3 Release Date

Left 4 Dead 3 release date


When? Where? Information? – These are questions we all ask and have been for a long time. When is Valve announcing Left 4 Dead 3?

Let’s face it, Valve has a hard time counting to 3, so to expect a Left 4 Dead 3 release date,  would be like doing the same thing over and over again looking for different results.

Left 4 Dead was release November 2008, following it’s popularity, Valve release L4D2 November 2009, this was a year apart, it is now May 2012 and we have not heard much about Left 4 dead 3.   Sadly, Valve also says they have no new product announcements for E3 this year. Which is not to much of a concern considering they like to keep things a secret. They only recently announced CSGO after working on it for quite some time.

Let’s take a look  here – Where is Portal 3? Where is Team Fortress 3? or how about Half-Life 3? These games are so very popular they almost scream for a 3rd release? Don’t you think?  I do admire the fact that Valve does take time and effort to make great games, and I do understand that development and time may be limited with such pressure to make the next release even better. So I am not to worried, and also very confident that they will bring us the goods.

UPDATE 5/21/2012: Valve Teams up with OverKill Software (Creators of PayDay: The Heist) to make possibly Left 4 Dead 3?

Looks to be a mystery project, but this has been announced  on the official  OverKill webpage. Are we excited? If it means L4D3, then %$@ Yeah!

“As perceptive gamers will have noticed, several hints have recently been dropped into PAYDAY The Heist, which has led to various rumors. We are excited to be able to confirm that an in-depth collaboration between OVERKILL and Valve is currently in production.

We are working on a very cool blend of PAYDAY and Left 4 Dead. I am sure it is so exciting that it will have some players check into the hospital before we are done.”

Left 4 dead

Aside from all the rumors, videos, pictures.. there is no concrete facts on if and when we will have a L4D3 release date, I can only hope, but my gut tells me yes!

So I leave you with this question, “What would you like to see in L4d3?” (please comment below)

    Two things. When infected, it would be nice to be in control of the witch. It would also be nice if there was an option to pass on the tank. Some people suck at tank (like me) and don’t like to play him. Also., there have been many times when I had a nice attack setup and was pulled from my position to automatically become tank.

      Good point, controlling witch would be nice, maybe add some percs to the tank and make him more viable, or optional.

        in L4D2 it can control the witch you just download witch control plug in..maybe? you check out at youtube a more information to be a Witch… and i agree what you comment…turn in to a witch in easy way and don’t need to download anything…

      Note Bill did die in L4D2 the passing tho D: he was my favorite

    I want to see it go back to basics L4D1 is so much better than 2 as a competitive player of both games id rather play 1 it requires more skill and a hell of a lot more teamwork…..lose the gimmicky more guns more special infected crap and concentrate on team based gameplay

  7. TianaKimberly 05/31/2012 at 9:11 pm - Reply

    more back story on the characters would be nice. also really unique campaigns. for example : in L4D1 , all the campaigns have pretty much the same setting. dark. i would love to see more daytime stuff. i mean dark carnival. loved! all the campaigns are truly different and i think they should keep that up. maybe head to the Florida keys to meet the other survivors! :)

    L4d 3 cant wait for it and it would be cool ro play
    As the witch but it should be like the tank when you come across a witch the person that has the most point should play as her the optional with tank should be there cuz I play with people that can’t play as tank l4d3 should have the screamer that was going to be on l4d2 they need to keep the charger and jockey and coach

  9. kane 07/09/2012 at 4:04 pm - Reply

    Its not a good idea to have alternate way to avoid tank, he is the main excited moment we can have and challenge in the entire gameplay. about the witch issue, just leave it like currently we have, its perfect and not need to be changed.
    Agree to AkitaG13, personally i prefer to play 1 than 2 because it requires more teamwork. but it would be cool to have different kind of special effected and bring chaos to zombie world ! Please release the Screamer !!!

      The Screamer was out back in L4D1 Beta and it is basically the same as the boomer… what it does is screams and marks a survivor and than his/her vision gets blurry and infected run after them

    i really wanted to see if there is new weapons,new
    episodes,new survivors,
    new special infected

        i loved how in l4d1 when you died, you went ragdoll. l4d2 they cut that off… it would be nice in l4d3 if you could die ragdoll. plus in l4d3 the survivors in l4d1 and l4d2 could team up together

  14. ? 08/02/2012 at 6:42 pm - Reply

    I want the survivors from L4D And L4D2 to meet some were exciting.Including friends of the survivors found,Like Ellis’s friend Keth (Idk how to spell it).Or One of bills Marine buddies.You get what i mean.

    I would like to see more melee weapons and maybe a special mode where they offer like sci-fi or silly weapons just for kicks.

    I would like to see good competative, balanced gameplay that is fun, fast paced, reliable, and has the signature l4d feel with something else added to it. Versus is the life and heart blood of core l4d players, and we would all like to see it taken to the next level so that the game that we love can be better than ever. I trust Valve to be able to figure out how to do this, as they have with so many other games in the past.

    New weapons such as revolver, double barrel shotgun, awp sniper rifle, m9 pistol, famas assault rifle and glock pistol.

    Valve will not release L4D3 until they have made HL3

    i want an army of friends like Bill in L4D3

  26. Jason 10/24/2012 at 8:55 pm - Reply

    I wish it was a little more challanging at times. Maybe take away unlimited ammo in handguns and be able to hold a handgun, melee and a shotgun/rifle.

    Maybe release L4D3 on PS3 as well? I mean PS3 players(like me,I play using my PC) are craving for L4D,we can like play L4D rather than other lame games out there.L4D3 will be breakthrough,if it can be played using the PS3.Seriously,PS3 players+XBOX=MORE MONEY don’t you think?They might have told us that it is not compatible with the platform,but guess what…..WE ARE PLAYERS TOO!You guys are nothing without us,it is not We are nothing without you guys. I really wish it is compatible because L4D2 was released in 2009.It’s been 3 years now.Maybe it is possible for you guys to make it compatible?

    Naw. This is fake. We all know Bill dies in The Sacrifice, and the rest of his gang go and live on The Keys.

    I’d like to be able to carry more explosives and weapons, and wear body armor from swat members you put down, and let the bots be more controllable.

    On L4D3 should have all of the people from L4D1 and L4D2 to meet each other thinking the zombie war is over and have to work together because the zombie war starts back.

    I would like to see more melee weapons and possibly a new special infected. Keep all the ones now, but i dont know. Something that follows you. A stalker maybe? Sort of like a slenderman character. I would also enjoy more than one way to finish. Different alleyways or fences to climb to get to a different finale. It would stay fresh and new a lot longer.

  32. RYan 11/14/2012 at 6:22 pm - Reply

    I don’t want to see either of the survivors from the last two games, as much as I love the survivors from L4D1 I want new survivors and a new area.. Like the east coast, or the heart lands. More animations would be nice like have survivors leaning against walls/crates/etc at the beginning in the safe rooms. Having characters like in the walking dead I.E: The little girl, who is handicapped in that she can’t use tier 2 weapons. More emotes would be nice too.

    I want to control me in Left 4 Dead 3. I know that a lot of people do. I really wish that Valve will make it so you can right? That would be awesome!

    I would like a prequel for both l4d and l4d2 within the same game. They happend at the same time, don’t they? It would be really cool to see what causes the outbreak, and how the characters finds each other.

    Another idea: maybe [1 or 2 more survivors] so people will cooperate a little more. And once in a while u should be able to pick up something from a dead common infected like a bile jar or something. More topography and climates in the next 1… if there is a next one. There must be a next 1!! >:(
