Cabin in the Woods-themed L4D2 DLC was once in the works at MGM

The Cabin in the Woods

If you enjoyed the limited-release-but-everybody-went-nuts-for-it Cabin in the Woods, and you enjoy a good bit of Left 4 Dead 2, you might have been excited to know that a Cabin in the Woods-themed piece of DLC was once on the way, before financial difficulties at MGM squashed any hope of release.

“We actually were going to do a downloadable L4D2 expansion pack, where you’d fight in the Cabin world, but then MGM went bankrupt so the delay squashed it,” said Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard in a Reddit thread. “But the people at Valve were still cool enough to let us use some of their monsters to fill the cubes in the background (I had a lot of cubes to fill.)”

“By the way — the game was gonna be amazing. You were gonna be able to play in both the upstairs ‘Cabin in the Woods‘ world and the downstairs ‘facility’ world with all the monsters. Believe me, I HATE all video games based on movies, they always suck, but porting Cabin into Left For Dead felt like the right fit. It pains me that it didn’t happen.”
