Battlefront.com announces Strategic Command WWII Pacific Theater is gold, though the accompanying explanation makes it clear they are using a different definition of "gold" than the rest of the industry. From their description, it seems that their use of that term in this case covers what is generally considered having created a release candidate: "What does 'gone gold' mean? It means that the game code has been 'frozen' and a final release candidate has been created. It does NOT mean that the game is ready for release yet. We now need to finalize testing, proof all the print materials, create and test the installers, and prepare our online delivery system for the downloads. A firm release date as well as info about pre-orders will be announced Sunday, December 7th (yes, that's a historic date). The game is a stand-alone third part of the series, does not require any previous games to play, and will cost $45." Normally a game is "gold" when it has been tested, approved, and released to manufacturing (RTM) for duplication.
