Valve Announced today that Portal 2 is gonna be delayed. But before you get a worked up in a tizz, it’s only gonna be two months. April 18th, 2011 is the new release date for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC release. Here’s what the ever humorous PR team at Valve had to say when making the announcement via email.
Valve today announced that Portal 2 — the sequel to the ground-breaking title that won over 30 game of the year awards, despite missing its original ship date — will now be available the week of April 18th, 2011. This two month slip not only marks the shortest delay in Valve’s proud tradition of delays, it represents the approaching convergence of Valve Time and Real Time. Though this convergence spells doom for humanity, it will not affect the new Portal 2 release date.
It’s a forgivable offense Valve, but only because Portal 2 looks incredible. Any more delays and we’ll start talking anarchy here. Nevertheless, April 18th is still a long way away. After Gabe Newell’s announcement at Sony’s press conference for the game, things have started to get exciting surrounding Portal 2.
