Portal 2 "Major Update" Free Next Year

Valve announces plans for a second free add-on for Portal 2 coming to their puzzle/platformer early next year. Word is this will include the recently revealed improved editing program:

October 21, 2011 - Valve, creators of best-selling game franchises (such as Half-Life, Left 4 Dead, Team Fortress, and Counter-Strike) and leading technologies (such as Steam and Source), today announced the second game add-on for the year's highest rated multiplatform game, Portal 2, is in development and targeted for release early next year.

This major update will feature an easy-to-use in-game map editor that will let users design, build and share their own single-player and co-op test chambers with the community, who will be able to view, play and vote on them with a simple click.

Portal 2 was released April 19, and currently holds a Metacritic score of 95%, making it the top-rated multiplatform game of 2011. Its first content update, "Peer Review", came out two weeks ago.

Fine, if you want to drop the franchise then so be it... but at least finish off that friggin' story line.

You ended the last Episode of a psuedo cliff-hanger and haven't touched it since.

Stop counting your money and making robot gestures and hats, and finish off the friggin story line.'

I don't care THAT much anymore about the story... but I have a kind of OCD about finishing games that I care(d) about. And thinking back to Half-Life... my mind says "more to come... need to finish off after a cliff hanger." But there's never anything coming.

Never mind the fact that they just released FREE DLC that was indicative of quality time spent developing it. So no, they're not just sitting around designing hats/gestures and counting money.

Do you even know if they do or don't have separate teams working on different products? You just assume all resources at Valve are working on Portal 2 content? Highly unlikely. They may deserve some flack for the lack of HL:Ep3 news, but imo gtfo of here with your rants in a thread about MORE FREE updates to an awesome game.
