I think this should have been posted on the Portal 2 group. Anyway, i have the final hours but did not finish reading. I thought portal 2 was 9 years after portal, because of the "9, 9, 9, 9..." that the computer keeps repeating at the beginnig of portal 2.

HL3 confirmed for release 2999AD.

I think they left it purposefully ambiguous.

I agree with Detective Dog. One of the beautiful things about all of Valve's storylines is how vague they can often be. Gives the player something to think about, sparks debate and speculation within the community, gets people talking, and is probably one of the reasons they are so well received and remembered.

I read more of the final hours and indeed there's a reference to portal 2 taking place 50,000 years after portal, but they could have changed that during development. I mean, 50,000 years is a LOT of time.

That would mean that eli would want some 40-60 year old gordon to hook up with his 20-25 year old daughter.

Drastic times, I guess. Still creepy a little bit, though.

He's still 27, his age never changed in stasis.

Forever 27, hehe

I guess gordon's new job DOES have some benefits.

Portal 2 can't have taken place 50,000 years after Portal... Chell would have died. and the fact that gordon was in stasis doesn't matter he would still have been 40-60 years ago (as in prior to HL2)
