The Art of Portal 2 - $22.19

Cancelled (Will be resolicited in 2013)

Maybe they're making a comprehensive Portal art book?

===============================================

  • Hardcover: 184 pages
  • Publisher: Dark Horse

Book description:

A thrilling look at one of the most popular video games ever! The Guardian said it was "an astonishing experience." GameSpy called it "a near-perfect example of what can happen when all of the elements of modern game design are combined to create a beautifully cohesive whole." Now, Valve and Dark Horse pull back the curtain to give you a backstage tour of one of the most innovative video games of the decade! The Art of Portal 2 walks you through the visual evolution of the award-winning game, from concept to completion, with never-before-seen concept art and insights from the writers and artists behind the Portal series.

Recently revealed at Comic-Con 2012, The Art of Portal 2 will house some of the exquisite digital artwork and paintings done for the Portal game series. Lock in your preorders before the price rises!

Hmm...I already have the CE guide for the extra art section, but this is too hard to resist

Yeah, it happened to a lot of people, at all online outlets. Either the artbook is cancelled completely, or it's been pushed back enough that they decided to clear it out of their system.

I noticed the book's complete disappearance from Amazon today myself (it was in my wishlist). Went to Dark Horse's website after that and found that it's completely missing from their list of upcoming books. Really curious about what happened here...

I foresee nothing but headaches down that route.

Interestingly though, the code on Diamond's cancellation list isn't 4 (Cancelled by Publisher), it's 2 (Will Resolicit)

So I say there's still hope of it coming out, but likely with some sort of change.

Thanks for the update guys. It would be nice if they made this into a comprehensive The Art of Portal (Series) book.

Only time will tell.
