I can certainly see the grounds for making one. I mean, it's a successful franchise that bring them a lot of money, and they are good games too (if you play with friends at least). I don't see them making one anytime soon though since, as stated above, they just announced a bunch of DLC for it plus that the second game got a lot of flack for being released so shortly after the first game was released. It would be a bad move - I think - from them though I'm sure that just like people did with the second game, they would hate on it and even say they'd boycott it but eventually wind up buying it and loving it.
For Christ's sakes I hope not.
The only reason Left 4 Dead worked was because the cast was colourful and had distinct personalities. That and it had the novelty of being new while L4D2 was a rehash with terrible characters and bland maps.
So unless they bring back Zoey, Bill, Francis, and Louis for Part 3 (or at least actually try making good characters) they should leave the L4D franchise dead and buried.
I hope they make another one... I love the L4D series to death, and I would love more of it.
However, I'd like to see them break out of the formula a bit, and go for a more drawn out experience with more player development and story. There's so much RPG potential in zombie survival... if only a little of that were added to the mix, it could be awesome.

"This, though not as extreme.
" Probably. Everyone I know hates L4D2 so I'm sure they'll want to try and redeem themselves. "wow they obviously cant tell a good game wen they see it
We cannot adopt the philosophies of other developers/publishers and have them apply to Valve. Valve works in a different manner than most other companies. Will there be a L4D3 somewhere down the line? Absolutely. But since L4D2 has a pretty polished formula, I bet they're sticking with that for a few years instead of pooping out another sequel like certain publishers do.
The only reason L4D2 got made is because L4D was in many ways somewhat of a failure.
You can tell Valve finds the current game acceptable due to continued support, I don't think they will make a new one for a very very very long time.
" will Valve make another 1 Line blog entry ? who knows? oh yea... no L4D3 "Rofl the TC is hilarious with all of these one line blogs he created on the forums. Also, I agree that there won't be a new L4D because Valve said so a while ago and they are too busy with releasing new DLC for the games.
