Portal 2 delayed into next year

Valve’s just anounced that “making games is hard” – oh, and it’s delayed Portal 2 into next year.

When it was first announced, it was originally due this holiday season for PC and Xbox 360.

No exact reason was given for the delay – or for that matter Aperture Science, who sent the email – but in a note it said:

“Representatives from both companies acknowledged that public safety concerns factored into the decision. They went on to say that even though Portal 2 will arrive slightly later than planned, all life on earth won’t instantaneously stop as every molecule in your body explodes at the speed of light, which is what would happen should a rip ever appear in the fabric of Valve Time.

Also, the game will be even better,” they added, missing an historic opportunity to create the first product delay press release to mention that a product is being delayed to make it worse.”

Am sad. Life moves on. Sad face.

Valve also confirmed its E3 surprise would be related to Portal 2.
