Half-Life 2 out this summer

In an interview with CNNMoney, Valve’s marketing director Doug Lombardi stated that the company “is currently targeting this summer for the completion of Half-Life 2”. They aren’t going to reveal any more information till E3 in Los Angeles (May12-14). The article discusses the other games that were delayed along with HL2, those that are planning to use the HL2 engine. The article also claims that between the HL2 delay and the delay of id Software’s Doom 3, PC games sales are down due to gamers waiting for these games to ship before upgrading their systems. (Sales were down 14% from 2002) They also think that games sales will pick up once these title hit the shelves.
