Posted by at 10:21 am on May 2, 2017

Chet Faliszek, whose writing credits include Half-Life: Episode One and two, Portal and Portal 2, Left 4 Dead, L4D2, CS:GO, and Dota 2, has confirmed with GamesIndustry that he is no longer with Valve. Faliszek’s departure comes just after of Erik Wolpaw, who left in February, and a little over a year behind Marc Laidlaw, left in January 2016.

“[It was] nothing exciting or drama filled,” Faliszek said. “I worked there 12 years, shipped a bunch of great games and some amazing hardware and wanted to change things up. There’s no news on what’s next etc, I will let you know when that happens.” 

Faliszek has benn one of Valve’s most visible VR evangelists, attending conferences and engaging with developers and consumers alike about the technology’s potential as a storytelling tool. But he was also visibly enthusiastic about what it’s capable of right now: In a presentation at the DevGAMM Conference last year, he pointed out that Raw Data, released last summer, was the “number-one-selling game the day it came out,” despite being a VR-exclusive release.
