It’s been a few years since Valve released their own game “Portal 2”. Whether there will ever be a sequel is not known. But there may be something in the pipeline: Rumor has it that we’ll see the announcement of a “portal thing” at the upcoming Game Awards.
Every year, not only does the Christ child come to earth, at similar intervals, rumors of a possible new “portal” emerge. “Portal 2” has been around for a few years. And since the launch in April 2011, Valve has not sent any real signals that speak in favor of a sequel. There are still new rumors. And if we can believe them, the Game Awards will announce something about “Portal”.
This is reported by an “insider” named Chairman George on Twitter. He wants to hear from a friendly developer that the event, which takes place during the night from Thursday to Friday, announces something about the “Portal” series. “I’ve heard rumors from a friend game developer about a portal thing being revealed on Thursday during the Game Awards, and I keep my fingers crossed that he’s right, even though any portal without Wolpaw would probably not feel good as an author.” his words.
He is referring to Erik Wolpaw, who appeared as the author of the first two “Portal” games and also put his hand to the “Half-Life” series. As a co-writer, he worked on “Psychonauts”. The same applies to the upcoming sequel. In February 2017, Erik Wolpaw left Valve.
On Twitter is already speculating about the mysterious “Portal” project. Some players would be pleased about a release of “Portal 2 VR”, others are more likely to believe in a card game. At the same time, the question was thrown into the room, if Valve has enough staff at all.
