Valve's Greg Coomber insisted Half-Life 2 will hit the shelves on September 30th as planned, despite widespread fears that the game will slip.

Speaking at Earls Court this morning, Coomber admitted "it'll be tight, but Half-Life 2 is still on for a September 30th ship". We hope you're right Greg.

Sadly the 25 minute presentation was exactly the same one that Valve CEO Gabe Newell delivered at E3 three months ago. Even the script was the same, much to the disappointment of those seeking nuggets of new information about the game.

Ah well. We'd rather Valve got the game out on time than spent ages cutting together new material for us to drool over. If the game really is only five weeks away, we've not got long to wait to find out for ourselves how good Half-Life 2 really is.
