Okay? Your premise was that Halo should be gold right now, which is clearly not a requirement.Metro Exodus went gold 13 December 2018 and released 15 Feb 2019.That’s just false. Two examples:They get manufactured. Packaged and then ready to be shipped. Very hard to do all that within 1 month. Definitely when shipping worldwide. Two to three months is the standard for going gold. As soon as you go gold manufacturing commences.This is incorrect. You think stores get physical copies of games 2-3 months in advance?2-3 months is when games go Gold. Because that's when the physical copies get made and start getting shipped out to stores. Anything under 2 months means logistics nightmare.
Just curious. Have you ever worked in retail? Lol
Ghosts of Tsushima went gold on June 22nd and released on July 17th. Under 4 weeks...
Borderlands 3 went gold last year on July 31st and released on September 13th. Under 6 weeks...
There’s not much in the way of “manufacturing”. They write the game on premade discs and package them in premade boxes.
