Turtle Rock isn’t Going Back to Left 4 Dead, Says Phil Robb

By   /   Feb 11, 2015

There are plenty of zombie games out there and the concept never gets old. Almost every year we see more than one zombie game being released. This year won’t be any different as we already have Dying Light and we’re preparing to kill some zombies in Resident Evil Revelations 2.

In most Zombie games, we are given a number weapons but there is something magical about bashing a zombie’s head with a baseball bat. Killing zombies with household items was made famous by Turtle Rock via Left 4 Dead. They worked on 2008’s Left 4 Dead and released an awesome sequel in 2009.

Since then, things have been quiet and Valve said nothing concrete about a third installment being in development. During an Interview regarding the newly released Evolve, studio co-founder Phill Robb was asked regarding his studio’s involvement in a future Left 4 Dead game.

According to Robb, they are not planning on going back to this franchise:

There’s a little bit of Left 4 Dead DNA in Evolve, but it’s a different experience. If you look back at Left 4 Dead there are some things there we felt kind of ‘proved out’ the theory for Evolve, like the Tank battles being one of them. I think we’re pretty much done with it. It’s Valve’s thing now. We’ve kind of gone off in our own direction. So I’d kinda like to see something new being done with it, and Valve always does great stuff, but it’d be cool to go back to it as just a fan and not a developer. But I doubt you’ll see anything from us.

Judging by his answer, even if Left 4 Dead 3 is in development, it will probably be developed by someone else. How about Techland? They did a pretty decent job with Dying Light don’t you think?
