If rumors and speculation are true it looks like Left 4 Dead 3 may be on its way here in some time. That time is still up in the air if it is truly being worked on but as it looks an employee has been spotted over at Valve with a directory structure showing files that point to the game being in production. Of course this doesn't dictate that Left 4 Dead 3 is going to be a solid release here in the developer's portfolio but it does kind of lend to it being in the works. Especially given all of the other weirdness that happen to be going on along with this supposed leak of the game.
This all started when Tristan Reidford from Valve was posting some images for a tutorial and the directory for Left 4 Dead 3 was left in plain view on accident. At least it is considered on accident as the image was quickly pulled down and replaced with a similar one with only default directories being shown for the PC. Given that this employee is only a concept artist this could have just been something being worked on for fun and they knew it would cause a huge stir but I'd like to think the other way as I want Left 4 Dead 3 to come out too.
To add to this speculation here too it looks like Left 4 Dead 2 has been getting a lot of update recently. This could be the developers working with the old title to keep people off the trail of the big Left 4 Dead 3 announcement; at least that is the current speculation surrounding that. It also doesn't help the speculation to be proven false given that Reidford has extremely active in playing the old game as of late. Like insanely playing the game for being seven years old now. Of course this could be just more speculation and the artist just found a new love for the old game but it does lend to Left 4 Dead 3 given the recent mistake.
Do you think any of this truly points to Left 4 Dead 3 truly being in the works over there? Could this all be one huge misunderstanding on our end or is it one big mistake that accidentally showed off a new title? If this is all true when do you think we will be seeing an official announcement? Go ahead and speculate and discuss in the comments below.
