Want this more than HL3.
L4D 1 + 2 should have been remastered for PS4 x xbox one , PS4 mainly because PS never had left 4 dead
left 4 dead 1 and 2 were so amazing back in the 360 days, loved that game
DO IT VALVE
Popular theory is them masking it with L4D2, that's why a lot of them have been playing it a lot lately.

Valve is a lot more friendly towards gamescom as an event. altho they mentioned multiple time that when they have something to show. they will not wait for some conference to announce it. the only reason we would see it there if the 2 dates match up.
This news is almost a day old btw. Pretty telling that barely anyone picked it up. Years ago something like this would have generated a lot more buzz.
valve should license the rights to half life and l4d to a developer that actually makes games.
I think at this point Valve is like the perfect example of how to much creative freedom is death to productivity. They can do everything, they can do it in ways no one else is ever going to think of. But because there is absolutely no pressure, or any sort of restrictions of time and money, they fall into creative death lock: Always improving because nothing is ever good enough. Then once it stops being interesting, since every interesting idea has been explored (though never fully realized), it's simply left forgotten for the next interesting tidbit.
Valve is the corporate equivalent of a cat that is chasing a laser pointer. They just happened to be lucky (or unfortunate) enough to find the infinite money well (Steam), just before their creative Alzheimer fully hit them.
This assumes the end result will be a bad thing. Valve made Dota 2 and CS:GO (as derivative as they are.) and have been exploring creative freedom through VR as of late. L4D3 not being released doesn't mean creative freedom is being squandered. It just means their creative freedom has different priorities than L4D3's release.
Its not like Valve has just been stagnant. They're doing a lot of exciting and interesting things.
Considering they literally showed screenshots of a Left 4 Dead 3 running on Source 2 years ago... I'm amazed we aren't playing this now.
