Considering all the games this gen released under the "release now, patch later" philosophy, no, this is quite special.
[QUOTE="Zeviander"][QUOTE="GD1551"]Isn't it standard that the game should be done by now? Not sure how this particular case is special.Thefatness16
This isn't all that special for a Halo game. Reach went gold in June '10 and released a little more than three months later.I remember during a panel Bungie saying that ODST was finished some 6 months before release.
