When do the events of Portal 2 take place within the current Half-life story arc? it's assumed and was supposedly confirmed that it takes place centuries after the Half-life 2 episodes, some think it takes place around EP2, but since it's a very popular belief that Portal took place during the Combine Invasion, it's very likely that Portal 2 takes place at least after the events of Half-life 3, if that's the case then what happens in Half-life 3 will set up the events for Portal 2, how this happens is unknown, but judging by the nature invading the ruins of the Enrichment Center and the birds that have nested inside the facility and the strangely empty wheat field with no sign of Humans, either the Combine successfully retrieve the Borealis and have used it to take everything they can from Earth and have retreated back to their home world to continue their Universal Conquest, or perhaps the plan to retrieve the Borealis had soured and resulted in Humanity's and the Combine's annihilation? and didn't it seem a bit suspicious how Earth looked completely fine, considering the Combine's goals to drain the oceans and harvest every material they could, leaving it a lifeless rock. So perhaps it's within the realm of possibility that the Earth we are located on in Portal 2 isn't the same Earth in Half-life? remember the perpetual testing initiative that was apparently the key to finding parallel Universes and dimensions? what if the world of Portal 2 is an alternate Reality? Food for thought.
