Portal 2 closed until 2011; ‘public safety’ cited

Valve may have only announced Portal 2 a few brief months ago, but the game’s development has apparently already run afoul of some evil machination in the Aperture Science laboratories. On Wednesday, the Seattle-area studio announced that its follow-up to 2007’s award-winning Portal has been bumped to 2011 on the Xbox 360and PlayStation 3. The black-humored first-person puzzler had previously been scheduled to arrive this fall.

According to a release from the studio titled “Valve Announces Making Games is Hard,” Portal 2’s delay came about as part of “the successful completion of an ethics-review-panel-supervised release date restructuring process,” and that “public safety concerns factored into the decision.” Valve also noted that “the game will be even better” as a result of the push.
