With the holiday season picking up around TMR and both video game and HD DVD/Blu-ray releases coming out at a fast and furious pace, we had almost forgotten that ‘Halo 3’ was just around the corner!
Leave it to Microsoft to eloquently remind us via a statement that ‘Halo 3’ for Xbox 360 is in the bag, i.e. gone gold, and has been shipped off for manufacturing. We’ll let the rest of their statement speak for itself:
Three years in the making by renowned developer Bungie Studios, ‘Halo 3’ is now finished and will begin its journey to store shelves around the world in less than four weeks. ‘Halo 3,’ which has already set new records as the fastest preordered game in history, has exceeded one million presales in North America alone. The title is set to shatter day-one entertainment sales records when it is released worldwide beginning Tuesday, Sept. 25. “This is a huge milestone for us and a big cause for celebration at Bungie and Microsoft Game Studios,” said Harold Ryan, Studio Head at Bungie Studios. “This is the game we’ve always wanted to make and certainly the best game our studio has developed. We can’t wait for gamers to get their hands on it on Sept. 25.”
