Halo 2

PC gamers with a penchant for first-person shooters have already waited two and a half years for the Xbox hit Halo 2 to be ported to their platform of choice, and Microsoft has confirmed they'll have to wait a little bit longer. The release of Halo 2 for the PC, previously scheduled for today, has been pushed back a fortnight to May 22.

According to a Microsoft representative, the game was pushed back "to make some improvements to the install experience and address other technical issues."

Originally developed by Bungie Software, Halo 2 for the PC has been entrusted to internal Microsoft studio Hired Gun. As for new features not supported in the Xbox version of the game, Halo 2 for the PC will feature a map editor, achievement points, and support for Games for Windows - Live, Microsoft's PC counterpart to the Xbox Live subscription service. However, Halo 2 will run only on Windows Vista.
