Half-Life 2 Episode Two Dated

Shacknews says they've confirmed with Valve that October 9, 2007 is the planned release date for Half-Life 2: Episode Two, Team Fortress 2, and Portal. All three games are to be available at Steam and in stores bundled with Half-Life 2 and Half-Life 2: Episode One in what's called the "Orange Box" (though with the cancellation of the Black Box (story), this one is now just "The Box").
