GC 2010: Portal 2 out in February

It's not a lie

There's no need to be bummed by the 2011 release date for Portal 2 because it's coming out sooner rather than later.

GameInformer has confirmed with developer Valve that its upcoming first-person puzzle sequel Portal 2 will be out at the beginning of February 2011.

That's much sooner than expected, as it had been thought that the game wouldn't be released until the second half of 2011. The highly anticipated sequel will likely be the year's first marquee title.

Portal 2 will be available for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on February 9.
