Jay Pinkerton, co-writer of Portal 2, has returned to Valve, it has emerged.
Pinkerton left Valve back in June 2017, after fellow Portal 2 co-writers Erik Wolpaw and Chet Faliszek left the company during a period in which much of Valve’s writing talent departed.
Naturally, fans are now jumping to conclusions of new titles from Valve, with hopes of a new Portal or Left 4 Dead title. Valve’s focus has not been on new games for a while now, with the company, instead, working on its existing titles, most recently adding new content to Team Fortress 2, as well as it’s platform Steam.
Aside from being a co-writer on Portal 2, Pinkerton also helped with the writing of parts of Left 4 Dead, as well as supplemental materials, such as the Team Fortress 2 comic series.
What do you think the return of Jay Pinkerton to Valve means? Maybe writing on a new IP? Or is he returning to work on more supplementary materials? Let us know below!
