Portal 2 Announced

Steam News has the announcement for Portal 2, the sequel to their highly regarded first-person puzzle platformer, saying it is due this holiday season. This follows on some viral hints that a Portal-related announcement was in the works, and the announcement has several characters underlined, seeming a further part of the alternate reality game surrounding the news. The highlighted characters are: "drattmannh0nee" if you want to puzzle through that one. Here's the announcement:

Valve, creators of best-selling game franchises (such as Left 4 Dead, Counter-Strike and Half-Life) and leading technologies (such as Steam and Source), today announced Portal 2 for shipment this coming holiday season.

Portal 2 is the sequel to 2007's Portal, which won 70 industry achievement awards.

For more information, please visit www.steamgames.com

Also, the April Cover Revealed on GameInformer.com has a Portal 2 image, saying: "Our 12-page cover story gives you the first details on Portal 2's new gameplay mechanics, storyline, and some surprising new twists." Update: A post on Kotaku has solved the latest clue in the ARG if you're ready to give up.

Liked Portal, until every other post on the Internet became "the cake is a lie" and everybody started masturbating over that cute, but ultimately forgettable, song at the end of the game.

Translation:

"I liked Portal until everyone else liked it, too. At that point I had no choice but to denounce it as totally passť, in order to maintain my hardcore street cred."

I hope it's not just more of the same. There's nothing *wrong* with more Portal, but if that's what it is... what is taking so long to get it released? Portal is the one game for which short, cheap DLC would have been wholly appropriate.

Edit: Now that I think of it, that XKCD comic isn't really an answer. It's still awesome, though, so I'll leave it at that.

The little information we have so far seem to indicate that it will be a standalone release - but it would be awesome to see a Blue Box (Orange and Blue are the colors of the portals in Portal, after all) with Portal 2, Half-Life 2 Episode 3 and... Team Fortress 3? ;-)

Portal was short by design too and it's one of the things that critics and fans lauded it for. It was a fun little game that didn't overstay it's welcome unlike many other "puzzle" games.

but it would be awesome to see a Blue Box (Orange and Blue are the colors of the portals in Portal, after all) with Portal 2, Half-Life 2 Episode 3 and... Team Fortress 3? ;-)

Counter-Strike 2! Day of Defeat 2! Valve bought up all these mod teams and what are they doing these days? If anything can dethrone the Call of Duty series for most played FPS title, it would be Counter-Strike 2.

Are they gonna release it solo? If so, they'd do well to make it a bit longer than two hours. Or sell it for ten bucks.

I thoroughly enjoyed Portal, but it was terribly on the short side.

Sure, Portal itself was short, but it was included in the Orange Box - which is probably the best fifty bucks I've ever spent on gaming.

I'm all for more Portal but how do you top this?

It really was a fantastic ending.

Can't wait to see 2.
