The Halo 3 beta is just about to start in a couple hours. To pre-empt the launch of the pre-launch, Bungie is announcing an official launch day date for Halo 3. Confused? Don’t be. September 25, 2007 is the date that everyone has been waiting for. While it may seem sooner than expected, Bungie employees seem pleased that it is almost all done.

“The only thing it does however is make the end seem very, very real to people. To be honest, the critics in the studio are those who drive and stress the team the most. 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,” Executive Producer Jonty Barnes said on the Bungie.net forums.

The topic opens by teasing gamers about their prior pronouncements about the Halo 3 launch, which many assumed to be November. “We said Fall 2007, but did you expect Halo 3’s release date to be just two days into the Fall? On September 25, 2007 (just two days after the Autumnal Equinox), players will be able to finish the fight they started in Halo: Combat Evolved and continued in Halo 2. Halo 3 will release in Europe on September 26, 2007. Worldwide dates may vary slightly depending on local rules and conditions.”
