Halo 2 PC launch pushed back two weeks

Microsoft announced in a press release in March that the Windows Vista version of Halo 2 would come out today. Well, the game is nowhere to be found, and now Joystiq has word that Microsoft has in fact postponed it by a couple of weeks. Halo 2 PC is now scheduled for release on May 22, as Microsoft needed to "make some improvements to the install experience and address other technical issues," Joystiq reports.

The Vista version of Halo 2 will introduce a new style of installer dubbed "Tray and Play" that will allow users to play the game while the installation process is doing its thing. According to Halo 2 Vista project lead Jo Clowes, users will only have to wait two minutes from the time they insert the game DVD into their PC until they can start playing.
