Valve: Left 4 Dead 3 Not in Development

IGN has an official statement from Valve saying Left 4 Dead 3 is "absolutely" not currently in development, following the recent reveal of concept art for a new installment in the co-op zombie shooter series. Here's the full statement:
“We’ve seen rumors to this effect for the last couple of months,” Valve said in a statement. “We did briefly explore some Left 4 Dead next gen opportunities a few years ago. But we are absolutely not working on anything L4D related now, and haven’t for years."

“It’s clear some people are having fun creating misinformation to spin up the community and other outlets. Unfortunately, for now a new L4D game is not something we’re working on.”

They have Half life Alyx and two other AAA titles on the way.

Alyx is only a push for their VR equipment, it might end up not much better than a good HL2 mod playable in VR...

Valve is disinterested in making games, that much is clear. Given how profitable Steam and the CSGO/Hat Fortress cosmetic loot box economy is for them, they can afford to be. What I don't get is why they just don't license out their ip to be continued by 3rd party developers who actually still give a shit about game development.

It will be Left 4 Dead 1.5 - a VR exclusive, of course!

Valve as a game development studio died a while ago. They haven’t done anything of note outside of hats and weak iteration of the counter strike franchise. Oh and Dota2, which will always be in League if Legends shadow. Sad no more L4D, but not surprised.

Although im pretty sure that Alyx will be delayed until later this year just like Cyberpunk.

Is anyone really surprised at this? Really? I'm not, I've lost all faith in Valves ability to create games. They are more interested in the bottom line.

The question is not why the hell not but Why the hell would you when you already collect a 30% tax off of all games being sold.
If only someone would compete with Steam...
$680 Million Dollars is a good start.

I just wish they'd put the money, manpower and effort that they invested in their pointless hardware and software (that they'll eventually abandon ie. Steam Link, Steam Controller, Steam Machine, Steam OS, etc.) to actually do what fans want them to do and make sequels to their popular games. The sheer amount of hardware and projects that Valve has abandoned and the behind-the-scenes drama over the years seems like their whole CABAL system is just flawed at its core.

... nor Half-Life 3, nor Portal 3... nor any other game that requires development.
