Half-Life 2 and Portal writer Erik Wolpaw has returned to developer Valve after leaving the company back in 2017.
Valve boss Gabe Newell confirmed to a fan that Wolpaw was indeed back with the company, following his departure to work with Double Fine Productions' upcoming Psychonauts 2. Prior to that, he was with Valve for over a decade, where he cut his teeth on both episodes of Half-Life 2, plus Portal, Portal 2, and Left 4 Dead.
The move to Double Fine wasn't surprising at the time; Wolpaw had previously worked on the original Psychonauts back in 2005, after all.
