Erik Wolpaw Returns to Valve

Shacknews has an image of an email from Gabe Newell confirming that Erik Wolpaw is back at Valve almost two years after leaving the company as one of the first of a few writers parting ways with the developer. They also note that Wolpaw's name actually appears in the credits for Artifact, Valve's just-released virtual card game. There are also posts in the ValveNewsNetwork Twitter feed (thanks Eurogamer) saying they've confirmed the legitimacy of the Newell email. Erik's credits include Psychonauts, Psychonauts 2, Half-Life 2: Episode One, Half-Life 2: Episode Two, Portal, Left 4 Dead, and Portal 2. There's not much more to this for now, but we imagine this will respark speculation that one of these days Valve is going to get cracking on the sequel everyone is hoping for, Ricochet 2.

He worked as an author on the card game Artifact... Oh wow. VALVE! What the hell?! /facepalm

I play Artifact for the deep lore and world building.
