Gel Proves Slippery: Portal 2 Now In April

Waiting for the Valve train, late again.

In news that will only surprise Simon Surprisington of Surpriseland, Valve have declared a delay for Portal 2’s release. They’re calling it their “shortest delay in Valve history.” No longer shall we be seeing the game in February next year, but instead, April. April 18th, to be precise, which they won’t be. It’s an extra two months to wait to find out what it’s like to throw gel at the walls, without breaking into your hairdressers at night and causing trouble. Fortunately, their press release announcing this delay is very funny, so the news is more palatable. It’s below.


Valve today announced that Portal 2 — the sequel to the ground-breaking title that won over 30 game of the year awards, despite missing its original ship date — will now be available the week of April 18th, 2011. 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.
