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.

Perhaps "boycott" was a poor word to use. I simply haven't liked any of Valve's titles since Half-Life 2 and Portal so I haven't bought them. I likely won't buy any in the future unless they come up with something new that I like, but I would buy HL2:E3 if/when it is ever released. I wouldn't demand that E3 be released before it can be done right any more than I would expect Valve to base their business practices on what I think. I would like them to stop lying about it, though...
