Halo 3 Release Date Confirmed by Bungie

Bungie will finish their trilogy of first-person-shooters when Halo 3 launches in the US on September 25 and the day after in Europe.

“We said Fall 2007, but did you expect Halo 3’s release date to be just two days into the Fall?” Bungie said.

The date was revealed today on Bungie’s website which includes an interview with Executive Producer Jonty Barnes.

Barnes describes the game’s development cycle as, “…a swarm of ants devouring a food mountain at a picnic with rain clouds heading towards us.”

The previous two Halo games have been released in November. CVG notes that the change in release may be to avoid competition with Grand Theft Auto 4 which is expected to ship in November.
