Microsoft has once again pushed back the release date for the Windows Vista edition of Halo 2 to May 31. Halo 2 Vista was originally set for release on May 8, but Microsoft decided to push it back in order to make some important improvements to the install experience and to touch upon other technical issues. "Halo 2 for Windows Vista did not release to retailers on May 22, as previously announced, and will now ship from manufacturers on May 31. Shadowrun will be the first game to debut the highly anticipated Games for Windows Live system on May 29. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused our customers," said a Microsoft representative.
According to reports, nudity is the cause for Halo 2 PC release delay: “It has come to our attention that an unfortunate, obscure content error which includes partial nudity was included in our initial production of “Halo 2” for Windows Vista. As such, we have updated the initial game packaging at retailers with a label, so customers are aware before purchasing the game. Additionally, we’ve developed an online update, which can be downloaded from www.halo2.com to remove the content. At Microsoft we take the Entertainment Software Ratings Board guidelines very seriously and hold ourselves to high standards, with our customers always in mind.”
While Microsoft is officially calling it a delay, some stores have already received shipments and are selling copies.
