In an email exchange with a Reddit user, Valve Corporation’s Marc Laidlaw, perhaps best known for writing the story of Half-Life, revealed that he’s retired from the developer.

“Yes, it is true. I, Marc Laidlaw have retired from Valve. 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.

“I had a good run but lately I have been feeling a need for a break from the collaborative chaos of game production, and a return to more self-directed writing projects.”

Laidlaw is looking to return to writing sci-fi to “see where that takes” his life. And no, there’s no new information on Half-Life 3. “Where Valve may choose to take Half-Life in the future is not in my hands. I have been a grateful co-creator, but my time working on the series is behind me.”

Thoughts on his retirement? Let us know in the comments.
