Marc Laidlaw has left Valve

In an email posted to imgur Marc Laidlaw lists off all of the reasons that he left super publisher Valve. Citing a large number of reasons “but mostly im just old” the email also says “I am no longer a full or part time Valve employee, 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.”

Halflife3

So what does this mean for the long delayed never materializing Half Life 3? Readers will remember that Laidlaw wrote both Half Life and Half Life 2 solo. With out his influence is Half Life 3 destined to never exist at all? Does anyone really care?  I mean its been so long at this point that FPS games have shifted completely away from story having story at all (see Star Wars Battlefront, and the last Call of Duty for examples). Does the gaming public really want another story driven FPS set in the world of Half Life or should we let it die?

About Fionna Schweit

Hi, Im fionna Fox! and i love video games. I have been playing video games since I could reach the keyboard. My first PC was a gateway (though dont ask me to recall the model number) and I remember starting most of my games out of DOS. Those were interesting years. My first console system was an Nintendo 64, on which i played a lot of GoldenEye and StarFox 64 and even more gauntlet dark legacy. Now i mostly play PC games, though i do own a Xbox one (mostly for halo). My favorite types of games are rogue likes, and anything thats an RTS, I have a soft spot for anything in the Warhammer universe as well.
