Half-Life 2 Episodes writer Erik Wolpaw is back at Valve

Half-Life 2 Writer Erik Wolpaw Returns to Valve

Erik Wolpaw, who co-wrote Portal, Portal 2, Left 4 Dead, and both the Half-Life 2 episodes, is back at Valve.

It's unclear what convinced Wolpaw to return, although it probably has something to do with Half-Life 3. He left Valve in 2017 to work with Double Fine Productions on Psychonauts 2, though has now returned to the company in which he penned his biggest hits. This also makes the second major Portal writer to make a grand return following Jay Pinkerton's re-entrance back in July of 2018.

PCGamesN has rounded up a few sources which confirm the move, including finding an email from Valve CEO, Gabe Newell, confirming the rehire. Since the suspected re-hire started being talked about online, Valve co-founder Gabe Newell made a decision to confirm it was true via email in response to questions from Tyler McVicker who runs Valve News Network. Wolpaw is a talented writer and one that I'm sure Newell is very happy to have back at his company.

Half-Life 2 writer and Portal co-writer Erik Wolpaw has reportedly returned to Valve, with eagle-eyed players noticing that the veteran's name appears in the credits for the developer's latest game, Artifact.

For now, Half-Life 3 still isn't happening and there's no signs it ever will.
