Half-Life 2 and Portal Co-Writer Eric Wolpaw Has Returned to Valve

Over the course of 2016/2017, Valve began to lose some of its most notable writers, with the folks behind the stories for Portal, Half-Life and Left 4 Dead all departing. The likelihood of Newell responding to a random email seems low but Valve News Network, a popular YouTube channel dedicated to keeping up with all things Valve, claims to have vetted the email. With half of that group having returned, it looks like the future may be a little brighter than we thought so brace for those Portal and Half-Life 3 rumors to kick up in full force once more. However, one of the Half-Life 2 writers has now returned to work for Valve, which is sure to give new hope to those desperate for a third game in the series. A few months earlier (February 2017) Erik Wolpaw left, and Marc Laidlaw left in January 2016.

Wolpaw was at Double Fine working on the original Psychonauts before joining Valve back in 2005.
