Black Mesa: Release Date Moved Again

The Black Mesa Team moved the release date for the Half-Life 2 mod again: "I am sorry but do not expect the game to come out within the next two months." (Black Mesa, Black Mesa: Source, Half-Life 2, PC)

your comments always sound like you're addicted to porn. You are sick. What Sony and I get up to in private is none of your business.

No Black Mesa, No HL2 Episode 3
Gordon Freeman, where are you?

I blame it on the G-Man.

Maybe they're thinking of using the newest source engine from Portal 2?
This is annoying as heck. I'll wait for dear esther.

Looks like Black Mesa has a bad case of Valve Time.

Yes indeed.

I thought when they announced the first delay from 2009 that it would never get finished. It's in development hell, with people who are not fully committed to the project (because their real jobs are taking up their time).

You have to have serious issues to project a 2009 release date and then not release until 2011 at the earliest. They have changed engines before as well (like DNF did).

The point of this mod was to upgrade HL's graphics to the Source engine so that they wouldn't look outdated. Well unfortunately, the source engine already looks quite dated and Black Mesa is going to look very outdated if it ever releases, defeating the point of the mod.

The BM Team never mentioned any other release date than "2009". They couldn't make it 2009. After that the release date was set to "when it's done". The release date hasn't moved again. They never announced a 2010 release.

I'm kinda glad I put this on the "get excited about it when it's released" list.

It's how I coped all these years for Duke Nukem Forever.

ahaha, i've been like that with most games these days, makes them so much more enjoyable.

These things take time. Does anyone realise the people making this mod have jobs?

Imagine, you come back home from work...do you really want to create more work for yourself?

As for Black Mesa being 'outdated' when it comes out...well that's a joke. Source won't be outdated until HL3 and even then, w've not even seen HL2:Ep3 yet.

I know they have jobs other than this mod but I still stopped caring a good while ago. What's the point in hyping your mod up and then never releasing it? The whole point of the mod was that it was a response to Valve releasing Half-Life: Source, which was nothing more than HL1 with ragdolls and prettier water.

Their goal was to do a total-remake with "current-day visuals", but by the time it releases it's gonna look outdated. Downvote me all you want but I stopped being hyped for anything HL-related a while ago, just like how Valve keeps pretending HL2: EP3 doesn't need to be developed.

From the Black Mesa forums:
Posted by CatzEyes93 regarding this blog
"wait.. that site said we moved the date again? What date? how do people extract that a date was set and then moved by me saying it isnt coming out within the next two months? I really dont understand the community sometimes."

They never HAD a 2010 date to begin with, it has not been "moved again," it was only stated that you SHOULD NOT EXPECT IT WITHIN THE NEXT TWO MONTHS. This kind of crap is the reason the developers don't like to say anything.
