The May issue of Maximum PC has HL2's release date as November. So a delay to 2005 wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility, provided this information is accurate.

What was it some people said, ahhh, they delayed HL2 because of GeForceFX optimizations and it's nvidia's fault. Gabe Newell is a arsehole pure and simple.

lol oh well, tbh i dont think hl2 is gonna be that special. its gonna be just another fps. farcry looks as good as the footage of hl2 thats been released, so maybe the possible delay will just be to try and out do all the games out atm. but by the time they do that other games will be out that look better than farcry and it will get delayed again lol its a huge vicious circle, i say release it.

*sigh* Some of these devs are truely I mean think about it logically, if you keep delaying a game, naturally better games will be released in the meantime. If they keep delaying it w/ the intention of making it better than the latest hot title, it'll never be finished...

Can you say Duke Nukem Forever, how about Team Fortress 2?
In my opinion Half Life 2 was nowhere near finished and this just carrys on the Valve tradition of talking up a game, then not realeasing it for a very long time.
I think HL2 will be just another FPS, plain and simple.

Most likely most of us complaining will because we loves games but its really sucks that it was ready when they did the demo/benchmarks for ATI and all that damn publicity and now still nothing to show for it. I would have much preferd they kept it under wraps and not talk about it as much instead of releasing so much info as if we would be seeing it shortly.


Also I think there really holding it back because of DOOMIII and what they might have seen in Far Cry. I bet if Doom was annouced to ship in june HL2 would ship in July. Another to add to the rest.

I already have. Someone just needs to go a slap the Valve team around a lot.
