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."
