Half Life Two Episode Two Delayed Until Next YearWhen Valve Software CEO Gabe Newell said last month that the new Half-Life 2 would be coming out by years end for both Xbox 360 and PS3, it appears he was biting off a bit more than he could chew. Sadly, Valve has now backtracked and is shooting for the first quarter for all the platforms: Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. "It's just sort of classic Valve being overly aggressive on our dates," the usually tight-lipped executive told the site, referring to his company's long history of missing release dates. "But we're aiming for Q1  right now, and we're really far along in the play test stage." Attempts to directly contact Lombardi, who is currently in Europe, were unsuccessful as of press time. Lombardi also confirmed the PC Half-Life 2: Episode Two would launch alongside the 360 edition, which Valve is developing internally.
