Well, with no word of it going gold, it was looking dubious for a 30 Sep release :(

According to http://www.bluesnews.com/

"Shacknews has finally received official word that Half-Life 2 will not be making its planned release date of September 30, something a quick glance at the calendar can confirm. Here's the quote from Valve's Doug Lombardi:

The previously announced September 30th release date for Half-Life 2 is being pushed back. We are currently targeting a holiday release, but do not have a specific "in-store" date to share at this time. We will release that information as soon as we have confirmed a new date."

What exactly is a 'holiday' release???

DVD.co.uk has a shipping date of 28 November 2003.
That's around about Thanksgiving in the US and just before Christmas. Sounds like "Holiday season" to me.
