News: Valve pulls out of E3

People may remember the awesome rumor that we posted last week (Link) about Halflife viral posters…

Sadly this was proven a hoax, but we all felt hope for the change in title over the companies E3 event listing.

Today via an email:
“Just a quick note to clarify the Monday Press Event at the Regal Theater is completely cancelled. Please do not head over there expecting to see us.”
– Valve’s Doug Lombardi

This means the companies new content will only be present on the show floor during the main event.

The announcement comes just 48 hours after announcing it had delayed Portal 2 into next year, having previously been scheduled for a late 2010 release.

Also, as a follow up to the previously mentioned rumor story.. the big announcement valve spoke of will be “portal 2 related”.

More news as we hear it.

    Who cares, Valve is one of the most overrated and underwhelming developers ever.

    I guess there a little “overrated”. But they still do deserve first place.
