Valve (sadly) announced today that Portal 2 has been delayed two months, and will now release on April 18, 2011. Hello, worse news I’ll hear this week. Thanks for stopping by, jerk.


In typical Valve fashion, the official announcement made us simultaneously chuckle and weep:

“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.”

Sad, sad days are these. Waiting until February to get our hands on Portal 2 was going to be trying enough. I don’t want to know what levels of human suffering we’ll reach come March of next year, because it ain’t going to be pretty.

I guess it wouldn't be a good game if it didn't have at least one delay..

This was Valves surprise.

SURPRISE!!

Anyway, I can wait for this game. I would rather a delayed good game to a rushed bad one.

Did the writer and editor at G4 seriously let "worst" go through as "worse"? Or maybe they're just not good at EngRish.
fixed.

Seriously though, valve probably just delayed it to keep up the tradition of delays.
Either way....its not like we'll have to wait until HL-ep 3 is released to get our hands on a portal gun again, or suffer through a 4 year id style wait. Nor are we even suffering a 3DRealms DNF carrot on a stick move back.
It is one of the more original (albeit big budget) titles coming out in a world dominated by CoD,MoH, WoW and (ugh...) casual gaming....
I think a heaping helping of patience is in order.

I had hoped they would actually get it done before February, seeing as it's already november and they delayed it before (it was supposed to be released in 2010).

Still, this game is going to be amazing. They might even release it together with HL2: Episode Three

Why is everyone so bloody fussed about this game?

Sure its a great game and I seriously enjoyed it and still do but in my opinion Portal wasnt actually a full on game but more a light puzzle game you should get for free with a copy of the sunday newspaper if you know what I mean.
I mean its a gimmick game and not a proper game. Its like Star Wars Pod Racer on the N64(?). There was a movie, it had a good scene so they made a small game out of it.

There was a new engine, it had awesome capabilities and they had a puzzle in mind so they created Portal as a fun nondepth (cake? seriously?) game that ended up being bundled with HL2 and co like it should as an extra



Its no DNF of HL2E3 or DX3 or SWTOR or any other big game out there waiting to be unleashed on the world

Its Portal -_-

If I had to guess I'd say its because it was a original idea, and a rather well executed one at that. Besides games that are extras have been very successful before *cough* geometry wars

I for one am looking forward to Portal 2 and hope that valve can resist delaying it again...but knowing valve.....well...we'll see
