Valve E3 event “completely cancelled”

Friday, 11th June 2010 17:38 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Just in case you needed more clarification, Valve’s E3 event in Los Angeles next week is officially off. No more.  “Completely cancelled”.

Just so we make it clear to you.

Confirmation came via an email from Valve’s Doug Lombardi earlier today on the conference’s cancellation at the Regal Theater.

“Just a quick note to clarify the Monday Press Event at the Regal Theater is completely cancelled. Please do not head over there expecting to see us.”

Instead, all the stuff that will be happening from the developer will happen on the E3 show floor at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

The announcement comes just 48 hours after announcing it had delayed Portal 2 into next year, having previously been down for a 2010 release.

The developer also announced the surprise it was planning for the show next week would be “Portal 2 related”.

    Meh, sounds like they have nothing other then one game to show anyway. For that it really isnt worth the trip.

    So let me get this straight… they announce an announcement but then cancel that announcement to only say about another announcement then they cancel that announcement?

    I think it’s because those Portal-themed emails were slightly confusing to some. At least now folks know for sure.

    What really pissed me off: Twice ‘official’ intel about the show and now nothing. Well, ‘Valve’ and ‘Waiting’ sound alike, innit.

    I’m guessing they thought this “surprise” they had was going to disappoint everyone.

    I heard thousands were going to show up with their UC2 game cases and slap Gabe Newell across his chubby fat face for making that ridiculous speech a few years ago.

    typical valve, best thing to do is ignore them until the game is released

    … amateurs for sure. What a bunch of retards.
    They might as well shut down VALVE completely and concentrate on reselling games via STEAM.

    #15 5 years ago

    I agree, fucking amateurs making some of the best games ever.

    Fantastic developer, not the best PR department though. Remember Left for Dead 2? Yeah, that initial reception was not so good, now they repeat that mistake again.
