LGC08: Left 4 Dead delayed until late November

Left 4 Dead

Valve and Turtle Rock’s survival-horror FPS, Left 4 Dead, has now been bumped back from its previous release date of November 4th in North America to November 20th. This news comes by the way of Valve’s president Gabe Newell who, in a video interview with the German gaming site Gamekings, confirmed the new release date while also offering no insight as to why this decision was made.

Valve has always been known for its “when it’s ready” release mentality, though some believe that the delay may have to do with a possible PS3 port of the title. In an interview with CVG, Doug Lombardi, Valve’s marketing vice president, states that there is a “50-50” chance of the title coming to the PS3. He follows up by saying: “There’s zero chance of [Left 4 Dead on PS3] happening this year. It’s something that’s being talked about right now as the game is gaining popularity and looking like it’s going to be a hit.”

It’s not all bad news, though; be sure to check out the new trailer from the Leipzig Games Convention after the break!
