Valve has informed Eurogamer that Left 4 Dead 2 pre-orders have already exceeded double the number of those taken for the original game.
“Our pre-orders are currently double what they were for Left 4 Dead 1 at this point in time away from launch,” said Valve’s Doug Lombardi. “We’re like 20 weeks out or something like that.”
“We’re seeing great enthusiasm from retailers, from EA, [and] the press called it multiplayer game of E3.”
So much for all those protests, eh?
