Portal 2 Delayed Again

Valve sends the perhaps inevitable announcement that Portal 2 has succumbed again to Valve Time, and the release of the puzzling sequel is now planned for release the week of April 18th, 2011.The game was previously expected on February 9, and Valve notes this makes this the shortest delay in Valve history, though of course, the game was already delayed once from this holiday season, and at three-or-so months, that was probably their previous shortest delay. They feel this represents a trend, saying: "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."

I'm not complaining about the quality of games they release. But like others have stated, they shouldn't announce release dates, when they can change. They should only announce them when it's a "sure thing".

It defeats the point of even announcing it, if the gaming community knows that it can change. So they aren't "release dates" any more, they are "the date we are hoping to have this game out by".

Basically you can't depend on release dates from companies except from the ones that normally say "when it's done". Because when they give you an actual date, you know it's going to actually happen.

So they feel proud about a short delay? They should feel ashamed for any delay.

If you can't accurately announce a release date of a product, you shouldn't try.

Can't detect a joke eh? How about the fact that all their games are really fucking good, and these delays are for the better.
Agreed. Stop releasing dates so early. Look at Blizzard. Diablo 3 isn't ready so they won't give a date yet until it is.
