Half-Life 2 release date confirmed News from Daliyradar.com link for story here http://gamesradar.msn.co.uk/news/default.asp?subsectionid=161&articleid=65749&pagetype=2

After all the rumours and speculation, it now appears as if 14 November is the date for your diaries...

Half-Life 2 will be released on Friday 14 November - at least, according to a release schedule that is currently circulating in the US.

While we have yet to receive confirmation of the date from the UK office of publishers Vivendi Universal, the schedule seems to be legitimate and appears to answer the recent is-it-or-isn't-it delay rumours.

It was originally announced that Half-Life 2 would be released on 30 September although this was called into doubt at the end of July when sources at Vivendi revealed that it was delayed until "holiday season 2003". Meanwhile, developers Valve continued to insist that the game was on schedule.

Still, it seems as if 14 November is now the day to start counting down to.

In related news, Half-Life 2 will make its European debut at the games industry's ECTS show in London at the end of the month.

We first caught sight of Half-Life 2 at E3 in May, where it was easily the game of the show. No doubt it'll manage a similar feat this time round. We'll be bringing you full ECTS coverage from 27 August.

Thanks for the info bud :thumbsup: It's a good thing though, when you think of it. This means Halo and Doom3 and Tron 2.0 won't be totally dominated right after they come out. ;)

[color=dimgray]Sorry, not buyin' it. How many times have we seen a "HL2 Delayed Till - " article. Until VALVe confirms it directly (and preferably an e-mail from Doug Lombardi to my inbox) September 30th is the only release date I'm banking on.[/color]

Yea, ok, but, what if Valve release it on the 30th of sept but Vivendi delay it to 1th Nov.?! Sounds radical but hey, vivendi is publishing it not valve! What if Vivendi need a delay to make all the cds/boxes or whatever??

Mmm I'm still not convinced. A guy on a gamesite I visit frequently came up with a link which stated that HL2 would come out the 14th of december.

I guess we'll just have to wait patiently and see what happens.

PS: Azz, did you get the PM I send you? Sorry to sound like an impatient kid but I just want final clarity concerning the aforementioned request/offer? :)
