Doug Lombardi departure rumors debunked, will remain at Valve


Doug Lombardi, the long-time head of Valve’s marketing, will remain at Valve, contrary to a whirlwind of rumors that are spreading across the internet.

A succession of Tweets and NeoGaf posts pointed to Lombardi leaving the company after a significant stint as the marketing lead. The evidence was found on his LinkedIn resume, which currently claims that he left Valve February 2013. So, if he were to leave, he would have until the end of the month to do so.

However, we reached out to Lombardi via email to see what was really going on with this whole rumor. He quickly responded.

Why his own profile says otherwise, we still don’t know. We’ll supply you with more information as the story continues to unfold.
