Half-Life 2 delayed! Noooooooooooooo!

According to word from the folks over at Shacknews, the highly anticipated (by yours truly in particular) Half-Life 2 has been pushed back from it’s September 30th release date.

The previously announced September 30th release date for Half-Life 2 is being pushed back. We are currently targeting a holiday release, but do not have a specific “in-store” date to share at this time. We will release that information as soon as we have confirmed a new date.

And there was much gnashing of teeth. Oh well, I suppose I’ll have to hope it ends up under my Christmas tree as any pushback puts it squarely into the holiday season and I generally stop buying video games around November so as not to screw up anyone’s gift purchases for me. Guess I’ll have to use my Best Buy Gift Card on Medal of Honor: Breakthrough after all.

  1. It shames me to say it (as an old guy) but I love Half Life!  I most enjoy blasting my kid to bits in Killbox!  I downloaded the movie demo of the new version and it is incredible!  I was looking forward to getting the new release

  2. Half-life…  blah
    Medal of honor….  shrug

    4 cups of coffee and Unreal Tournament2003…. 

    YAY!!!  I’m happy as an NRA member with a Tank!

  3. I’ve got both UT2003 and Quake 3, but I don’t tend to play them much. I was never a big fan of straight deathmatch. Half-Life with it’s team based options first got me hooked and then Counter-Strike with it’s hostage rescue and bombing missions really reeled me in. The Tug of War and Objective games in MOH:AA is why that’s my current favorite.
