Portal 2’s Cake Needs Baking Until April 2011

November 18, 2010 Written by Jonathan Leack

It’s been almost more than the three years since the cake became a lie, and another six months since Gabe Newell gave his coming out of the closet speech regarding Portal 2 coming to the PlayStation 3 platform. Although gamers have been craving the unique puzzle adventure, the developers at Valve keep pushing the release date farther and farther away.

Valve has announced what the company calls “the shortest delay in Valve history”. In simpler terms, Portal 2‘s release date was delayed from February 9th to April 18th, 2011. This comes as the second official delay of Portal 2, with the game originally intended to be a Holiday 2010 release. So much for that.

Portal 2 is a sequel to the cult-hit Portal, which allows the use of portals to travel between two objects instantly as the name implies. Portal featured some memorable puzzle moments and even began a slew of online fads including the beloved Companion Cube and insanely persistence A.I. called GLaDOS. Portal 2 is looking to add a handful of new elements to the series in addition to some interested co-operative mechanics.
