Portal 2 Writer Erik Wolpaw Leaves Valve
Among his works are contributions to emblematic games such as "Portal", "Portal 2" and the episodic add-ons of "Half-Life 2".
It came as a shock to those who value the scripts of the great games of Valve, the news of the departure of Marc Laidlaw from the company in 2016. Wolpaw has been at Valve for over a decade, joining the company in 2004 before working on several of their hit franchises including Portal, Left 4 Dead and Half Life 2: Episode One and Episode Two. Wolpaw co-wrote the original Psychonauts which won a Game Developers Choice Award for best writing in 2006. Prior to his time at Valve, Wolpaw worked on Psychonauts at Double Fine, and he's collaborating with that studio again on Psychonauts 2. Wolpaw wrote in a Facebook status update.

Erik Wolpaw, known as one of the main writers of the saga of Half Life, has chose to abandon Valve, the company with which he has worked since 2004 collaborating on projects such as the two episodes of Half Life 2, Portal and Left 4 Dead.
VNN assumed the "with Jay Pinkerton" part meant Pinkerton, also a writer at Valve, was leaving too, but some follow-up tweets from the man himself and Wolpaw cleared that up.
