Valve prepares Half-Life 2 release candidate for next week on GamesIndustry.biz (thanks Mike Martinez) quotes Valve's Doug Lombardi as saying they expect to be sending a Half-Life 2 release candidate to Vivendi on September 15:

    "We're currently planning to send release candidates to Vivendi by September 15th," according to Valve's marketing boss Doug Lombardi. "However, VUG hasn't given us a ship date yet."

    His comments came following a report from Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter, which pinned down Half-Life 2 as a November release in a comment on the potential success of three key PC titles this year.

they will DEF aim for the Xmas market , if they plan on releasing it soon.
 
IM still not convinced its gonna be this year tho. maybe xmas 2005.
The e3 stuff was apparently really smoke and mirrors marketing stuff. The game was no where near completion.
