totally, one random line totally just prove it, oh my, you must be the first one to catch on to this amazing discovery. NO THERE WILL NOT BE A PORTAL 3

Portal 3 not confirmed due to the fact it's a mod NOT MADE BY VALVE
[STING] BX_Blackecho5 Jul 10 @ 11:25pm 
Well it was put into steam and if valve considers it they may build off of that

dude portal 2 would be a bad idea because of what happend at the end of p2 how chell left

@The Shipwrecked Player.....play Thinking With Time Machine and you might agree with the rest of us.

actually @The Shipwrecked Player, I disagree. I think there's plenty of scope for a sequel. This is a spoilerrific post, btw. Many spoilers. Leads to a more aerodynamic post, but fair warning...

Think about it; Doug Rattman was left in extended relaxation and badly wounded in the comic, who's to say that the long sleep won't give his body time to heal itself and GLaDOS won't find him, plus nobody in Portal 2 actually had a happy ending. Not even Chell. Yeah, she's free, but she's out there in a world she doesn't know anything about with as much education as your average 10 year old (she's been at Aperture since Bring Your Daughter to Work Day, after all). Wheatley and Space core are stranded in space and GLaDOS has no test subjects (in Art Therapy she revealed that she'd gone through all the subjects Atlas and P-Body's efforts had acquired for her, every subject in that vault from the main co-op storyline, in one week) and she also revealed that Atlas and P-Body's test results are useless to her. She needs to test. It's her addiction, her obsession. No testing means a miserable, stressed and more-angry-than-usual GLaDOS.

Thinking With Time Machine is non-canon. It's a fan-made mod and has no bearing on the main storyline, but what's to say that Chell won't find that having spent most of her life trapped in Aperture has, as it very much would have, given her some psychological problems? People who've spent a long time in institutions irl often have trouble adjusting to life outside. Chell might be the same. There'd be two options for a protagonist. Chell, desperate to return because Outside is terrifying and she doesn't understand it (you ever hear the story of Plato's cave? it was almost the concept behind Portal 2 until they went with Prometheus), or Doug, found and revived and no longer running loose through the facility. Just think; playing a schitzophrenic test subject would definitely make testing more interesting.

My own theory is that Aperture have a moon-base presided over by a personality core. After all, no way did they PAY for all that moonrock they use in conversion gel. That means they probably have a permanent portal between Aperture and a moon-rock-mine on the lunar surface. Space and Wheatley didn't have enough momentum to leave the moon's orbit, so who's to say the core running that facility I imagined won't find them and bring them in? That means there's even potential for Wheatley to return.

TL;DR, there's no reason they couldn't make an official Portal 3

Wow That was amazing I like your theory
Zotrian Jul 11 @ 1:00am 
Thanks. I both hope I'm right because it's a cool theory, and hope I'm wrong because I'd hate to not be completely surprised by the storyline of the possible future Portal 3.
[STING] BX_Blackecho5 Jul 11 @ 1:03am 
but its still cool
Zotrian Jul 11 @ 1:04am 
logical, too. Eh, I just want more of that adorable Wheatley
