[HardOCP] Half Life and Portal Writer is Back at Valve

Quote:
Shacknews says that Eric Wolpaw, the writer behind Half Life, Portal and Left 4 Dead, is back at Valve. Following several other high profile departures, Eric left the gaming company about 2 years ago, and many saw it as a symptom of Valve's shift away from actually developing games. Shacknews first heard about his return via an (allegedly) leaked email floating around social media websites, but they ended up finding Wolpaw's name in the Artifact credits. As they note, Valve is facing some stiff competition in the PC gaming storefront space, and some newer titles from Valve could make the Steam store more competitive.

Source.


So, he left work done for Artifact or made some contributions from home during his absence? Could he have done the same for some other games? What is he going to do there now?

Half Life 3 confirmed.

I come from the net. Through systems, peoples and cities to this place: Mainframe. My format: Guardian; to mend and defend. To defend my new-found friends, their hopes and dreams. To defend them from their enemies. They say the user lives outside the net and inputs games for pleasure. No one knows for sure, but I intend to find out. Reboot!

Doesn't surprise me with some of the other major developers pulling their lineups out of Steam to set up their own shops. Valve likely wants to make up for the loss of that income.

hope Eric made some nice mint then in the re-contract. Creative writing is so under-appreciated with brain-dead gameplay these days (4tnite)
