Portal 2 Coming to Retail from EA Partners

By Xav de Matos, Dec 22, 2010 8:10am PST Although any Portal 2-based news will be a disappointment unless it includes the words "available now," today we're one step closer to seeing the game in stores.

EA and Valve have announced a retail distribution agreement between the two companies that will bring Portal 2 to retail shelves. The partnership was expected, as EA and Valve have already worked together to bring The Orange Box and both titles in the Left 4 Dead franchise to stores.

Valve will distribute Portal 2 for PC and Mac via its digital platform Steam, while EA will presumably distribute the game to retail channels for all planned platforms: PC, Mac, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.

In early November, Valve told Shacknews that Portal 2 would launch on April 20 for all platforms in North America. According to the press release today, Europe will be able to make portals on April 21.
