Default Half-Life 2 Gold Tommorrow??

Quote:
We at CS-Nation are seeing a large under-current of information that strongly leans toward the possibility of Half-Life 2 going gold very shortly. Information points to an official announcement from VU Games or Valve Software tomorrow, but as with all rumors our sources could be completely wrong. Rumors usually don't turn out well for us, but at least they allow for hilarious comment threads where everyone flames each other.

Let's get it boiling, boys!

Take it with a grain of salt... but I still hope so

Half-life2.net took the information down off their site supposedly from request by gabe. Why would you take down a rumour unless you were certain it were false?

Hopefully I might be able to actually play HL2 before I ship out. I'll be really sad if Im in bootcamp when it gets released

Hmm, this makes it interesting. If Gabe did ask them to take it down, obviously something is going on here

Well, they don't know any better than we do if the game will go gold tomorrow or not. Whether or not it passes testing is entirely dependant on if they find any major bugs, assuming they're actually testing the release candidate now.

Well,I'm sure that he has also received a lot of hate emails because of last year's Sept 30th deal. He doesn't want HL2 fans to get hyped up and excited over something that probably won't happen. Get my point? I think that HL2 will go gold within the next two weeks. But hey, it's just my 2 cents.

Half-Life 2 Update Part 2
The same source that told me RC5 was recently submitted to Vivendi for testing just e-mailed me this:
Sierra should announce Half-Life 2 is gold tomorrow along with a release date. If not tomorrow then very soon, the game is done.

I trust this source--if I didn't, I wouldn't have posted his original e-mail. I don't have a second source that I can verify this information with, but I'm not Bob Woodward and this isn't the Washington Post. It's a blog, and those of you who read it regularly are counted among my friends. So this information is for you. I know that you won't freak out if it takes a few days to happen.

[UPDATE: Sierra is obviously not publishing this game (although they were originally)--it's Vivendi. I assume that's what he intended to say. I'm not going in and changing Sierra to Vivendi because I don't want to be altering what was sent to me, so I'm just including this note instead.]

The first post got linked all over the place and it turned into a Donner Party computer gaming frenzy. So before you new people get all hysterical on me, what I know is in this post. I'm not telling you who the anonymous source is via private e-mail. If I tell you, he won't be a source anymore. That's why I have sources--I don't rat them out.

Hmmm..... Well, I guess we will just have to wait and see. If it were to go gold tommorrow, then heck yeah. I just wish they would unlock my copy of HL2 on my PC. I'm so ready to play, especially fool around with the gravity gun. YAY
