Payday: The Heist
Overkill Are Not Working on a Left 4 Dead Prequel, Says Valve

Oh well that’s a shame. Yesterday’s rumour that Overkill are working on a Left 4 Dead prequel has been denied by Valve.

In an interview published today, Chet Faliszek confirmed that Overkill are working on a collaboration with the studio, but it’s not a L4D prequel.

“I want to make sure that people don’t think the prequel is coming,” he said. “Those guys [Overkill] are still making Payday: The Heist, we’re still making Left 4 Dead. We’re trying to be a little coy and a little fun because we want the communities to discover the collaboration for themselves.”

Yesterday’s rumour claimed that Overkill and Valve were working together on a L4D game that would tell the story of the zombie outbreak.

Despite all this, however, some kind of collaboration is in the works.

@2 I agree that cough is contagious there but other Left 4 Dead's would be great but even a new one would be awesome itself

Actually I'd like too have a L4D for the PS3. PS3 fanboys can thumb me down all you want too, but you can't tell me this dosen't look fun.

Left4dead was fun for a little while. L4D 2 was immediately boring. A shame since my xbox is just for exclusives, the few there are Im intrrested in.
