Vivendi due to receive game later this month but September release now seems unlikely

Further to last week's reports that Half-Life 2 may be in shops as soon as September, we've had clarification on the game's current status from Doug Lombardi, the marketing director at the game's developers Valve.

"We are planning to deliver a release candidate to Vivendi later this month and we're hoping to see the product on store shelves this fall but we do not have a confirmed ship date at this time," he told us.

A "release candidate", in case you were wondering, is actually a pre-gold version of a game that developers pass on to publishers. At this stage, the product features all designed functionalities and is ready to release unless fatal bugs emerge. It only goes "gold" after testing and approval from a publisher though - who can ask for a number of release candidates from a developer before approving a game.

So... still no confirmed release date beyond the autumn, although that does suggest it's more likely to be October than the previously hinted-at September.
