What once was Fall, then became Winter, and now is Spring - so is the Portal 2 release date. In a move that should shock absolutely no one familiar with Valve, their products, and release dates, the company has moved the game from February 10th, 2011 to an April 20th release date.
This news comes from industry news man Jeff Keighley who is prepping a ton of goodies for the Spike VGAs early next month. According to him this delay is actually the shortest delay Valve has ever put out. We don't consider that any sort of triumph.
VALVE ANNOUNCES SHORTEST DELAY IN VALVE HISTORY
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.
Portal 2 will launch on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC with a two player co-op puzzle solving mode.
