Valve has announced that Portal 2 has been delayed again. North America and Australia will celebrate with cake on April 20th while Europe will believe that the cake is a lie until April 22nd.
The press release is short, sweet and humorous in true Valve fashion:
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.
While waiting for your return date with GLaDOS, I would suggest that you cuddle up with your Companion Cube because area and state regulations do not allow the Companion Cube to remain here, alone and companionless.
