Today I have the misfortune of being the bearer of bad but not unexpected news - Portal 2 has been delayed again. Its most recent planned release date was February 9, 2011. Now we find out that we will not get the pleasure of playing Co-op Portal until April 20, 2011. Only a 2 month delay, but we all know how this works with Valve. Do any of you actually expect to see Half-Life 2: Episode 3?
Because Valve likes to keep their fans emotionally confused, they released this statement to announce the delay:
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.
Thanks for driving us totally mad, Valve.
