Over the course of the last-generation, PlayStation 3 owners were denied the ability to shoot hundreds of zombies and scream at their friends with Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2.
The hugely popular zombie franchise never made its way to the PlayStation 3 – some say due to the complex architecture of the console – so it was only playable on PC and the rival Xbox 360.
It’s been a few years since Left 4 Dead 2 released, and impatient fans are constantly asking about a third installment in the franchise. Valve hasn’t given anything officially but it looks like one of its ranks may have let slip that the game exists by posting a screenshot online of his desktop with a file named ‘left4dead3’ which, to us at least, seems like… Left 4 Dead 3. Yeah, we definitely need to get into the detective business.
Why does this matter for PS4 gamers, then? Well, as noted before, the previous games never saw a release on the PS3 due to it being iffy to work with, but with the PS4 being much more akin to a traditional PC in terms of its working environment for developers, it’s very likely that Valve would release a hypothetical Left 4 Dead 3 on the console.
This isn’t the first time such a “leak” has happened, so don’t expect Valve to jump in with an official announcement soon.
Would you be up for some zombie slaying action on PS4? Or have you had it up to the teeth with the undead? Moan and groan in the comments section below.
