Favela was created by "Rick" and uploaded to the Maps Workshop on January 28, 2013. It, along with six other maps, were released as a part of Valve's Operation Payback. Only minor gameplay tweaks have been made since its initial release.

It was selected by Valve to be included in the game again as a part of Operation Phoenix.
