Half-Life 2 Xbox set for Euro release in late summer

Valve's Lombardi confirms console port for "late summer"; Aftermath won't be included.

A British Microsoft source has claimed that Half-Life 2 on Xbox is now likely to ship in September in Europe, quashing rumours that the port is to grace Microsoft's next generation console as a launch title later this year. Valve's Doug Lombardi added credence to the news this morning, but fell short of specifying a release date. "We plan to finish development of Half-Life 2 Xbox in late summer and have it available everywhere very shortly thereafter," he told Eurogamer. "No specific date to share just yet." US reports are suggesting that the game is to be finished in August.
