Portal 2 release date delayed due to ‘public safety concerns’

Portal 2” has been delayed. Why? “Making games is hard.”That’s the tongue-in-cheek announcement from Valve Software, the video game’s developer. The company reports Wednesday that Portal 2 will not be done in time to make its scheduled “holiday season 2010” release date. Expect the hotly anticipated sequel to arrive in 2011.

Valve’s press release – a joint statement with Aperture Science, the fictional company from “Portal” – explains that “public safety concerns factored into the decision” to postpone the game.

“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,” says the statement.
