Halo 3 Release Date Announced!

Today, May 16th, marks the beginning of the Public Halo 3 Multiplayer beta. In keeping with their penchant for theatrics, Bungie has announced the official release date for Halo 3.

The magic date is: September 25th, 2007!

This comes as a shocker to many Halo fans among us, who naturally assumed that Halo 3 would release in November or December, like it’s predecessors. A late September release means we’ll all be playing Halo 3 a whole lot sooner than expected! So get crackin’ on that Beta and let’s all ready up for September 25th!

    Wait… what? Didn’t they announce Halo 2 at the E3 before it released? And they said they didn’t have enough time? Didn’t they just do that again?

    does anyone know how to make those countdown clocks?

    I would love for someone to put one on our site for the release of halo 3!!!!!111111one!!!

    I disagree Rist, E3 is in January right? We’re now in May and they should certainly know if they can ship in Sept. Hopefully M$ learned their lesson from last time not to rush it? I could wait till Nov, but if they will be ready in Sept, sweet!

    earlier than i though it would come out

    WOOT WOOT eight days after my birthday! :)

    Right on brother. Sooner than later is always good. I was expecting closer to Christmas so this is a bonus.

  13. smarmythatguy says:

    i agree with rist. november makes more sense, and also it wouldn’t be bungie if they didn’t delay it AT LEAST ONCE. just don’t hold your breath for sept. i have my doubts and would love to be proven wrong though.

  14. Killazilla says:

    Come on Rist. This means we get to meet each other sooner! lol

  15. tubaguhbluba says:

    YES!!!! If it ships in 1 day, i can get it on my birthday!!!!!!! This is gonna be the best birthday EVAH!!!! i like how Bugnie tricked everyone by saying it would come out in the Fall, and the release date is 2 days after Fall starts.

  16. yup277 says:

    That wouldn’t be a trick then would it? They’re doing what they said they were going to do…

  17. Coyote 187 says:

    It says on the b.net post that they ‘knew about it for a long time’, so Sept. 25th has always been the date that has been set. They also have more people working on it in a more co-ordinated fashion than Halo 2, so they don’t feel NEARLY as rushed.
