Halo Status Report

With the removal of the remaining work items list on the Halo Website, Gearbox's Randy Pitchford made a forum post called Halo PC Status describing the imminence of announcements concerning the game's availability (thanks Frans and HBO). Here's the deal:

Expect an announcement about the release date of Halo PC sometime in the next 1 to 4 days. will carry the announcement in the forums, on the main pages and will offer other fun materials related to the announcement.

The "Work Items" remaining ticker was removed because there are no remaining work items for the retail game.

The team is working on a number of other things including a demo and some bonus features to be released as an update on or about launch time.

We are having lots of fun at Gearbox playing "Assault" mode in Halo PC. We can't wait for you to be able to join us

Thanks for your participation in the forums and thank you for your continued excitement and anticipation of Halo's invasion of the PC.

Youre right gearbox is not owned by Gabe Newell.

They just do every halflife conversion including Counterstrike, Blue Shift, Opposing Force and the Botched 007 Game they just finished.

While not owned by Gabe they have a great interest in keeping him happy , and that probley includes Borrowing code and DX9 techniques that are being devoloped to be used on Halflife2.

Truth is this I find it Strange that the only game that had Slowed down the mighty GFGF5900 was HALO PC. Not Jediacademy not Tron2 not anything but Halo and I shudder at the thought of fooling yourself into beliving that GFFX will get its act together before HL2 ships.

I dont give two cents about HALO compared to HL2. Im still playing counterstrike with full servers to boot.
