Developer Valve has announced a new release date for Portal 2.
The game had originally been planned for some time late this year, but in June Valve announced that the title had slipped until an unspecified time in 2011.
“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,” the press release explains.
“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.”
Shacknews subsequently got word of a more specific date – that being April 22nd in the UK and April 20th in North America and Australia.
