Left 4 Dead Delayed Again

Left 4 Dead

Following on the heels of the announcement of Valve’s acquisition of developer Turtle Rock Studios comes news of more delays to its co-op zombie survival horror game Left 4 Dead. While the last we heard was an early 2008 release date, before even this the game was targeting a 2007 release. Given Valve’s track record for target dates, one can hardly be surprised by such an announcement.

Many in the community are already speculating that the recent delay is attributed to a strategic decision (by Valve) to include Left 4 Dead as a bundle with Half Life 2: Episode 3, much akin to Portal and TF2 with Orange Box. Whether there is any truth to this remains to be seen. For now, we’ll have to wait patiently until such time where the notion of public beta testing comes into play (unless video teasers are your thing).

That sucks. It seems weird that a game that had been showing off playable builds at a bunch of conventions would suddenly go on a media blackout and push back their release date.

I really don’t think it’ll be bundled with Episode 3, because I really don’t see Episode 3 coming out this year.

I’m really excited for Left 4 Dead, so hopefully this delay isn’t going to push it back too far. (I’ve heard that it feels complete from the human-side of the game.)
