Valve (sadly) announced today that Portal 2 has been delayed two months, and will now release on April 19, 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.
