Valve bought the developers of L4D... They have everything to do with it
Valve decides the release date and what they do and when they do it.
The developers have zero to say anything about that
they may hate it too like all the players. But Valve only sees cash so they can feed Gabe. Its not cheap to feed that fat bastard
