Portal 2 Delayed Until April 20th 2011

November 19, 2010, By Christian Davis

Valve has announced a new Portal 2 release date that will make eager fans a bit sad. The sequel to Valve’s award winning game is going to have “the shortest delay in Valve history,” the schedule shift sees the story-driven spatial puzzler launching on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Mac on April 20th 2011 in North America and April 22nd in Europe .

Yes, it’s on 4/20 (insert marijuana jokes here). Portal 2 was initially planned for holiday 2010, and then delayed until February 9th, 2011. So thankfully, it was pushed back to April and not Christmas 2011. It’s only a few months and I think most of you can manage that small wait.

Here’s the Press Release:

VALVE ANNOUNCES SHORTEST DELAY IN VALVE HISTORY

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.
