Half-Life 2 within days of going gold?

So say the guys at HalflifeSource.com:

According to recent conversations we’ve had with Valve’s Doug Lombardi, Half-Life 2 will be passed on to publisher Vivendi for final mastering and duplication within days for it’s early August target. The official appearance will make store shelves sometime in mid to late September.

In addition, we will be going to Valve to play test Half-Life 2 very soon. We will be broadcasting from Half-Life Radio and will provide screenshots and on-air interviews. More details on this exclusive play testing soon. Keep it tuned to Half-Life Radio.

There have been other reports in the past couple of weeks that the boys at Valve felt they were within two weeks of going gold so this isn’t far fetched at all. Which is a good thing considering how badly I’m geeking over this one.

  1. Me too, but I’ll be putting off on buying it at least until november* – seeing that my studies and my project work is already lagging behind.

    *Where it will be very useful distracting me from working on my masters degree wink

    But whoa, those movies really make you drool, don’t they? I NEED a new graphics card for the game after all. No way I am missing out on all the beauty!


    PS: Did you hear they are going to port all the HL1 content to the HL2-Engine. Now THAT might be a reason for me to play them again!

    August 27, 2004 – In a bit of late-breaking news tonight, Gabe Newell, Managing Director of Valve Software, announced that Half-Life 2 is scheduled to go gold on Monday. For the uninitiated, “going gold” means the game (the 100% final version) has been copied to a disc and is being sent out to manufacturers for duplication. Going from duplication to retail shelves can take anywhere from a couple weeks to a couple months, depending on the size of the distrobution and other factors.

    As soon as we know the retail date, you’ll know, so stay tuned!
