It’s not a surprise that another “Left 4 Dead” game would be coming our way. It’s long been rumored to have been in development, it was simply a matter of when and where the big announcement would come. However, I’m sure a leaked photo from a tour group wasn’t how Valve imagined their game would be announced.
Last week a group of DOTA 2 players were being given the grand tour of the Valve facilities. An eagle eyed player happened to notice that a list of programs was open and snapped a picture of it. A closer study of the list revealed the name “L4D3″, which you can check out below.
Sure it could be anything. Maybe it’s “Looking 4 Dat 3?” A common euphemism for those in the swingers club. Perhaps the player unknowingly uncovered the seedy sexual underbelly of Valve. Anything is possible, but it’s more than likely in reference to the “Left 4 Dead” series. With the news being leaked like this, one has to wonder how long it’ll be until Valve finally breaks radio silence to confirm or deny the rumor.
