Team Fortress 2 Coming Today, Portal 2 Delayed Until 2011

In a press release and blog post Valve Software has announced the delay of Portal 2 as well as today's Steam release of the team based first person shooter Team Fortress 2 for Macs. The sequel to the unique puzzle title, Portal, has been rescheduled for a 2011 release.

Team Fortress 2:
Team Fortress 2 (TF2), the title PC Gamer's editors have called the most fun game ever made, is now available for the Mac via Steam, a leading online platform for games with over 25 million accounts worldwide.

Like all the titles Valve have brought to the Mac platform, TF2 features Steam Play which allows gamers to make one purchase and play the game on both the PC and Mac. In addition, TF2 supports cross platform play -- so Mac gamers can play against/with PC gamers.

Those who play TF2 on the Mac will receive a free set of "earbuds" for their player character. Purchase the game this weekend on either platform and save 50% off the regular price. Or, try it via the Team Fortress 2 Free Weekend happening now on Steam.

In addition to all the TF2-Mac goodness, a new single-player training mode has been rolled out for both PC and Mac.

Portal 2:
Representatives from both companies acknowledged that public safety concerns factored into the decision. They went on to say that even though Portal 2 will arrive slightly later than planned, all life on earth won't instantaneously stop as every molecule in your body explodes at the speed of light, which is what would happen should a rip ever appear in the fabric of Valve Time.

"Also, the game will be even better," they added, missing an historic opportunity to create the first product delay press release to mention that a product is being delayed to make it worse.
