Portal 2 Gets a Release Date, Stephen Merchant’s Voice

August 18, 2010

In June, we heard the bad news that Portal 2 had been delayed to 2011. Now we know where it landed.

Game Informer reports that Portal 2 will be released February 9 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Mac.

The Valve source that fed Game Informer the game’s release date also mentioned that Ricky Gervais Show co-host Stephen Merchant had been cast as the friendly A.I. Wheatley that we saw at E3.

Merchant replaces Valve animator Richard Lord, whose temporary audio did a fine job of selling the character. Watch the “Meet Wheatley” video at the official Portal 2 website to see what I mean.
