As for said Eurogamer interview with Doug Lombardi of VALVe Software (an excerpt from it, as related to the interview):
"Eurogamer: Episode Two is out in Q1 next year now, right? Doug Lombardi: Yes that's right.
Eurogamer: Originally you said you'd hoped to get it ready this year. Is there a particular reason you had to change that? Doug Lombardi: No, it's just sort of classic Valve being overly aggressive on our dates. But we're aiming for Q1 right now and we're really far along in the playtest stage. You know, our thing is always that we're trying to make really good experiences and so we're going to manage to that rather than the schedule."
