Game Informer has revealed that Portal 2 is in development at Valve, with the title described by the publication as a "full-fledged, standalone sequel".

The first title was originally sold as part of the excellent Orange Box (Half-Life 2, Ep1, Ep2, Team Fortress 2 and Portal) and was also sold on its own via Steam. An updated version was also released as a standalone download on XBLA.

The upcoming issue of Game Informer has a 12-page preview, promising details on new gameplay mechanics, storyline and some surprising twists. The cover art for the magazine also suggests the action will take place both inside the Aperture Science Enrichment Center and outside.

We can't wait.

Valve's announced Portal 2 will ship this holiday season. No platforms have been confirmed.

Does that mean to make a prequel they should put -1?

You really wont need a decent PC for this; Source engine is like a million years old (5) now and highly scaleable. What specs does it have?

I'll end up buying it for 360 as well because I haven;t got a decent PC.
Hope it lives up to it's predecessor.

Yeh that was quality, and it's why I love Valve and probably always will. They are their own, and nobody can tell them what to do. Hell yeh \m/

Will put a pre-order down for this as soon as possible, but if it's a full game I MIGHT have to get it on 360 for achievements.... hmm.... I only want it on PC to make use of this stupid 8800gt that's sitting here doing nothing.

Portal ended making it obvious that there was room for a sequel, but I don't think it will be confined to a sequence of puzzles like it was before, at least not for the whole game, because it is too integral to the story behind HL2 E3 to be isolated like that.

Valve had the coolest teases for this game.
They encrypted it into the first Portal using a patch and made people work it out lol.
Awesome.

I'm sure Valve can pull it off, they're the mutts nuts. Fingers crossed for another GLaDOS song.

I'm not sure if it would work as well outside the lab environment...
