Valve have revealed in their latest press release that Portal 2 now won’t be out until 2011. Once again the press release was issued in collaboration with Aperture Laboratories and was entitled “Valve announces making games is hard.”
In it it said:
“the sequel to the ground-breaking title that earned over 30 Game of the Year awards despite missing its original ship date”.
Representatives from both companies acknowledged that public safety concerns factored into the decision. They went on to say that even though Portal 2 will arrive slightly later than planned, all life on earth won’t instantaneously stop as every molecule in your body explodes at the speed of light, which is what would happen should a rip ever appear in the fabric of Valve Time.
‘Also, the game will be even better,’ they added, missing an historic opportunity to create the first product delay press release to mention that a product is being delayed to make it worse.”
How this all ties in to the supposed E3 surprise is anyone’s guess although the party line is now that the surprise if definitely Portal 2 themed. All eyes on E3 then, provided you’re not too confused.
