    Gamespot Rumor Control has uncovered a nice bit of info that suggests Half-Life 2 went gold today.
    If true, this means an offical announcement is right around the corner, most likely Monday[br]

    Thanks to Adrien C for bringing this to my attention.

    :cheers:

    Let's just hope that they get it on shelves less than a month from the actual gold announcement.. Any longer would be pathetic :frown:

    WOO HOO!!!! Half-Life 2 is coming!!! I can't wait! And I know this rumor is probobly right.. its from GameSpot.. they don't just post any kind of rumor. They would ONLY post it if they belived it would be true and they have sources to back it up.


    EDIT: Also if you go the rumor control page it says that VU and Valve both declined comment... which that could mean that it is true too!

    Yea, say on Holloween, so we don't have to be bothered, as half the population of the world will be playing it, that'd be awesome.

    Gamespot does seem to be a reliable source, they brought us the Valve vs Vivendi legal battle after all...

    Hyperventilating, so many good things coming together, hopefully they's already produced all the CDs and the game will go gold and will be on the shelfs within 2 weeks (I'm always so hopefull).

    If this is true, they probably want to organise all the gaming sites to announce it at the same time like some crazy internet party :p

    The piñata isn't a headcrab but a camera or buzzsaw droid from hl2.

    Because they are going to tell everyone at the same time, so the news will be on every site.

    I can answer my own question.
    Half Life went Gold on November 10, 1998 and was released to stores on November 20.
    That's 10 days!!!

    Damn you, I search Half-Life news archives just to answer this question and then you figure it out yourself! :flame:

    Hey, that's a good thing to know though, it could be released quick :D

    Belief, so cruelly wrenched by events of late, is reluctant to raise her weary head
