Portal 2 Delayed; I’m Not Even Angry — I’m Being So Sincere Right Now
Valve just handed out a press release stating we’ll be waiting an additional two months for Portal 2, in what it’s calling “the shortest delay in Valve’s proud tradition of delays.” The new release dates are April 20 for North America and Australia, and April 22 for Europe, according to Shacknews.com.
Originally, the co-op enabled Portal 2 was slated for release for the holidays (that’s right now!), then delayed until February. Now it’s April, but there will totally be cake there, too. And grief counseling. Just assume the party escort submission position.
Still, at least Valve was entertaining in their one-paragraph press release as they dashed all hope of my receiving Portal 2 for my February birthday (along with cake):
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.
