Discovery Of Left 4 Dead 3 Files within Counter-Strike 2 Files

Counter-Strike 2 Limited Test was recently launched, giving players access to most of the game’s files. Within these files, a fan has reportedly discovered a reference to ‘Left4Dead3’.

A Redditor shared a code found within the CS2 files via an image uploaded to the Steam subreddit community, suggesting that the highly anticipated sequel to the zombie shooter may be in development at Valve. However, it is important to note that this discovery is not enough for an official announcement.

The spaghetti of code was written as:

version = 2, 
owner = triage*, 
severity = high, 
priority = none, 
category = ---, 
product = left3dead3
component = other


Rumors about the release of Left 4 Dead 3 have circulated for some time now, but it was widely believed that the game was put on hold until Source 2 was released. While there is still no official confirmation, the recent discovery suggests that Valve may have resumed work on the game.

At this point, it’s best to wait for an official announcement from Valve. The Counter-Strike 2 was announced unexpectedly, taking everyone by surprise, so it’s possible that a similar announcement could be made for the highly beloved zombie shooter franchise.

Fans of the game are excited at the possibility of a new installment in the series, and this recent discovery has only increased anticipation. Nonetheless, until Valve confirms the development of Left 4 Dead 3, fans will have to wait and see if the rumors are true.
