RUMOR: Alleged Left 4 Dead 3 Slides Leak Online

An alleged screenshot from a confidential Valve Powerpoint presentation leaked on NeoGAF today, and the images show Left 4 Dead 3 built in Valve’s upcoming game engine, Source 2.

The supposed screenshot shows the Plantation stage from the Left 4 Dead 2 campaign Swamp Fever, but “rebuilt” in the Source 2 engine, with the new platform allowing for increased detail while still remaining true to the original level. Preview shots of other sides also point to the Plantation stage, comparing the mansion porch in Left 4 Dead 2 with the rebuilt, detail-heavy version in Left 4 Dead 3.

It’s hard to make out, but there’s also mention of a new GUI for the front end of the Source 2 engine, which will streamline the content creation, authoring, managing, and editing processes.

As the headline suggests, this is very much at rumor status for now. Talk about the future of Valve is always exciting, but take the images and news with a boulder-sized hunk of salt for now.

We’ve reached out to Valve for comment,  and we’ll update if we receive a response.
