http://www.gamershell.com/news_BHalf-Life2BGold.shtml Half life 2 will still remain to ship on the 30th September.... :deal:... let me make this clearer.... Gabe Newell let us know that the 'news' posted on Shacknews yesterday (story) is a fake and that Half-Life 2 has gone Gold and in production now. Here's the official word: "The release will still remain on schedule for Sep 30th. People who have pre-orded it via Steam will still get it before the Sep 30th but we are currently ironing out a couple of bugs, people may have seen Half Life 2 yesterday for a minute on it while we were in our testing stages (...) The SDK will be available for download tomorrow 2.00pm EST. Now you've heard it from the horses mouth so rest assured. More news to follow on Sep 26th so watch this space."
wow this is great news! go valve, it better be on the 30th :)
thank you Valve. you just made my day brighter :D
just made me think, i hardly have enough money for Half Life 2. ill find someway..
Guys, I hate to be the bearer of bad news (again) but don't be fooled.
Summary: Update: After a few phone conversations with VU and thorough investigation of e-mail headers, coupled with the knowledge that Valve isn't located in UK (e-mail header), we've decided to have fallen victims to an e-mail spoof (although Valve is still unavailable to comment). While VU PR representative was unable to comment on actual release date, we feel stronger than not that the game has indeed been delayed.
Click on X's link and that's what you'll see. I checked and rechecked my e-mail from Doug Lombardi to make sure it was authentic and that the delay news I was going to post was the real thing. Apparently Gamers Hell need to do the same before posting their news. :p Sad fact is, HL2 is delayed until probably November. HL2Files wouldn't steer you folks wrong.
Gah...that sucks...I really was hoping it would be Sept. Van: Thanks for clearing up the confusion.
Damn. Oh well lets hope it makes it before christmas then.
wow time to get the pitchforks and go attack valve :(
According to Amazon.co.uk it will be released on the 1st of decemeber. Prolly bull shit like but its a start.
