Longtime Valve Writer Erik Wolpaw Leaves Company

It would seem that Erik Wolpaw  has left Valve. Over the past thirteen years with the company, Wolpaw has worked on games like Half-Life 2: Episode One, Episode Two, Portal, and both Left 4 Dead games.

Wolpaw’s resignation comes a little over a year after Laidlaw, also an influential Valve writer, revealed that he’d left the company. Laidlaw’s credits include many of the same games on Wolpaw’s resume. There’s no word yet on exactly what Wolpaw is up to next, though he’s credited as a writer on the upcoming Double Fine game, Psychonauts 2.
