As part of their weekly update, Bungie have announced that Halo 2 is completed and ready for testing. Despite some doubts it seems that the tattoo Peter Moore showed us at E3 this year is, in fact, entirely accurate. Of course, in this day and age actually meeting your release date is a bigger shock than slipping from it. So good news all round.
Halo 2 will be available in America from November 9th and in Europe from November 11th.
