GameSpot reports that Valve is now scheduled to complete the game in time for the holidays, that's according to the game's publisher Vivendi Universal.
When Valve announced Half-Life 2 in early May, some were surprised by Valve's firm insistence that the game would be ready to ship on September 30. Today we received word from the game's publisher, Vivendi Universal, that Half-Life 2's release has been delayed until later this year. Without commenting on the delay, a Vivendi Universal representative reaffirmed that the game would ship this year, sometime during the holiday season.Let's hope that Nvidia seizes this (unexpected) opportunity to resolve its well publicised Half-Life 2 bug.
