Speaking to G4, Valve boss Gabe Newell’s assured that Left 4 Dead content updates are to continue despite the fact a controversial sequel’s on the way.
“From a customer’s perspective, we think that given the sort of insane popularity of Left 4 Dead, that people are going to be super excited about getting a sequel to that,” said the exec.
“We’re going to continue to do Left 4 Dead updates and release more content for Left 4 Dead, and then also have Left 4 Dead 2 coming out as well.”
There’s a full interview through there, in which Newell explains the reasoning behind working on a sequel at this point.
More than 20,000 people have signed a petition saying they’ll boycott the game because of its proximity to the first title’s release.
