Might take a little longer for some multiplayer action.
Okay, so everyone knew Halo 3 would arrive this fall, but Bungie’s finally confirmed the third (and seemingly final, at least for this storyline) entry in the Halo series will be available in fall 2007. The news springs from the first of likely many marketing promotions planned for the game.
There’s some sadface.gif to go along with this news, however, as Bungie’s started indicating the beta may be pushed back a bit. Still hitting in the spring, mind you, but now they’re saying it could be "late spring."
"There are still many details of the Halo 3 beta to be finalized
but one thing we did want to confirm is that the beta will not be
starting next week. Crackdown will be available in stores starting
Tuesday, 2/20, but the Halo 3 multiplayer beta start date is still
being finalized. We’re still aiming for a Spring release, but it could
be more like late Spring."
