Following last year’s departure of Marc Laidlaw, Valve is now short another writer. Erik Wolpaw, who has worked with the company since 2004, has announced his leave.
Marc Laidlaw’s tweet confirms that Wolpaw is no longer with Valve.
@Wolpaw left Valve so I can now insult him freely without damaging the company’s reputation. He’s a comic genius and a true original.

Wolpaw had worked on several of Valve’s most notable titles including Half-Life 2, Portal and two Left 4 Dead games.
