Valve: We're 'Absolutely Not' Making Left 4 Dead 3

From PC Mag: You won't see a new Left 4 Dead game anytime soon, and Valve might not ever release one. It explored the possibility several years ago, but now the publisher-developer wants to make it clear that there isn't a next-generation installment in development.

Rumors suggested that Valve would release a virtual reality-based installment. Alleged concept art leaked on YouTube a few days ago, and then HTC Vive's Alvin Wang Graylin shared slides referring to "L4D3." Valve collaborates with HTC on the Vive platform , with the rumor mill generating plenty of hype, Valve felt the need to step in and confirm that Left 4 Dead 3 does not exist.

Valve understands that fans desire a new Left 4 Dead game and blames that long-held feeling for all the misinformation.

In a statement to IGN, Valve denied any active development. "We've seen rumors to this effect for the last couple of months," a spokesperson said. "We did briefly explore some Left 4 Dead next-gen opportunities a few years ago. But we are absolutely not working on anything L4D-related now, and haven't for years."
