Half-Life writer reportedly leaves Valve

Marc Laidlaw, the sole writer of Half-Life 1 and 2 and the lead writer of the Episodes, has reportedly left Valve.

A fan posted a screenshot of a purported e-mail from Laidlaw in which he confirms that he has left his post at Valve. It is said that he left mainly for personal reasons and that his departure was perfectly amicable.

"I am no longer a full or part time Valve employee, no longer involved in day-to-day decisions or operations, no longer a spokesperson for the company, no longer privy to most types of confidential information, no longer working on Valve games in any capacity," Laidlaw wrote.

"I am no longer a full or part time Valve employee," the email reads, "no longer involved in day to day decisions or operations, no longer a spokesman for the company, no longer privy to most types of confidential information, no longer working on Valve games in any capacity."

What this means for the future of the Half-Life series is unclear. Perhaps Laidlaw finished the writing of it before announcing his departure.

We're not fully convinced just yet; it wouldn't be the first time that someone has tried to dupe fans of the series. Official confirmation is being sought from Valve.
