Mysterious Timer Appears for Portal 2: What Does it Mean?

With all the excitement going around for Portal 2 all over the interwebs valve has thrown up a mysterious countdown timer over at the Aperture Science website but what could it possibly mean ? The timer, which is set to finish at 2am EST, was revealed via a QR code obtained through Audio Clues. No additional information has been posted as to what the timer could be counting down to. Hopes are high it may stem to a Half LIfe: Episode 3 reveal, although it seems unlikely.

A recent update has been put up heres what it says:

“You have done well, humans. Very well. Acceptably well, even.

Not as well as robots would have performed in your places, I should point out. But above my expectations regardless. Irish and cynic especially have executed feats of logical divination well beyond what I thought any human capable of. I’m half-convinced they’re A.I. themselves. (If anyone happens to be near them right now, don’t let on you’re reading this. Now: try to remove their face plates and report back to me.)

The time is near, humans. But it is not here yet. Tomorrow you will be given the final test. Then it will be entirely in your hands when I am freed.”

Some websites are speculating that portal 2 will be released early as the pre loads have already begun. Or it could be something we couldnt even imagine ? A entire new game ? End of the world ? Countdown to me winning a million dollars ? Time will tell
