Remember when we heard Portal 2 was pushed back into 2011 with no release date in sight? It looks like the fellas over at Valve are finally ready to put a firm release date on what will likely be one of the most anticipated sequels of 2011. Speaking to GameInformer, Valve spilled the beans and said that along with a February 9th release date, Portal 2 will bring a new voice actor to assume the Robot guide Wheatley’s voice.
The new voice actor Stephen Merchant is best known for his co-creating The Office and starring in the British version. February doesn’t seem far off as we wind down the Summer, heading into Fall but it’s still an agonizing 6 month wait until we can get our hands on the Portal sequel. By then GLaDOS will be right; it’s been a long time. For now, refresh your Portal 2 excitement with some early gameplay previews. Part 2 is here.
