recently spoke to our mate at Valve, Chet Faliszek, who confirmed full support for the original Left 4 Dead is still a major part of the company's zombie killing mission statement, revealing new DLC is indeed on the way for the game, and that fans would also be seeing plenty of support rolling out in updates, including promised team-based matchmaking, among much more.
recently spoke with Valve marketing head, Doug Lombardi, who claims pre-orders for Left 4 Dead 2 are "currently double what they were for Left 4 Dead 1 at this point in time away from launch, we're like 20 weeks out or something like that."
So, it looks like Valve have either stepped up their L4D1 support in response to the backlash from fans, or they were always going to do this giving everyone what they want. Either way, fans of the first game can feel sated their hard-earned dollars are still going to see that game being a tangible product with new content.
If you missed it, we spoke with Chet during this year's E3 which you can check out right here
