Bungie confirms Halo 3's launch date in a news announcement on the day of the beta release.
In an update on the Bungie website, the Halo developer revealed that the highly anticipated title Halo 3 will be released on September 25 in North America and a day later throughout Europe.
Executive Producer Jonty Barnes commented on the date's effect on development and the Bungie staff. "External dates and announcements just bring home the excitement and expectation the public has for the game, and this makes the hard work feel worth it. ... This time around the team is bigger and more coordinated, the goals are known but the scope is greater than we're used to, and irrespective of being far more organized it's not without chaotic elements looming ... not least September 25th."
