I don’t know about you, but I am anxiously awaiting the chance to live out my fantasies of cooperative zombie survival in Left 4 Dead. Unfortunately, it seems as though there’s something of a delay happening.
Originally slated for a November 4th release, Valve president Gabe Newell stated in an interview at Leipzig that the game will be available a little bit later than that. The wait time isn’t significantly increased, however, as he says the game will be hitting stores on the 20th instead. Why wait the extra couple of weeks? Vanity, it seems. November 20th of this year marks the tenth anniversary of Half-Life.
You can watch a video of the interview here, where Gabe is also asked about Valve’s partnership with EA, the buyout rumors and the future of the Steam engine. The clip also features footage of Newell playing Left 4 Dead with what seems to be another Valve employee. There isn’t anything really new to witness on that end but I have yet to grow weary of watching this game being played.
