Portal 2: Countdown Clock Hints at Possible Early Release

By Posted 15 Apr 2011, 13:51

There appears to be a few rumors circulating online at the moment, suggesting that Valve Corporation’s much-anticipated Portal 2 game could well see an early release. These rumors are being fueled by a mysterious countdown clock that has recently surfaced on the Aperture Science website.

According to a recent article by Jessica Citizen over at vg247.com, the site appears to have been updated with a countdown clock, which is counting down the seconds until 9:00 AM (PDT) on Friday morning. So could the Portal 2 game be arriving before its scheduled release date?

An Australian Kotaku reader was the one that spotted the update, while keeping a close eye on the Valve ARG wiki. All the recent signs appear to be pointing towards a possible early release for the Portal 2 game, although some gamers hope that Friday’s update will refer to Half-Life 2: Episode 3.

The website also provides a message underneath the countdown clock (which at the time of writing is at just over 3 hours), which simply reads: ‘you have done well, humans. Very well. Acceptable well, even.’ Do you think that it is a hint towards an early release for Portal 2, or perhaps something entirely different?
