Hello Black Mesa fans! We come to you once again with an update. It's now the end of 2009, and we know many of you have literally counted the days down until this fateful month. We are floored by the level of support you have given us and are very excited we're so close to reaching our goal. Unfortunately, to our great disappointment, Black Mesa will not make a 2009 release.

Hello Black Mesa fans!

We come to you once again with an update. It's now the end of 2009, and we know many of you have literally counted the days down until this fateful month. We are floored by the level of support you have given us and are very excited we're so close to reaching our goal.

Unfortunately, to our great disappointment, Black Mesa will not make a 2009 release.

Cynics may now rejoice, bets may be collected, and I think a mod team member has to eat his shoe, but we hope our loyal fans will forgive us and realize that the delay will translate into a better final product that's (hopefully) more easily available to everyone.

Once again we apologize for what has to be very disappointing news. We placed a 2009 deadline on ourselves to motivate us and bring this 6 year project to a close. And while we didn't quite make it, we have come very close and you can expect a complete, polished game to hit your hard drives in the near future. We'll be sure and update if anything changes. Until then, hang tight, it's coming!

why 50$? you can download a lot of FREE HL2 mods on steam.(DIPRIP,Zombie panic,etc) Store.steampowered.com

BMS team: we believe in you =) we'll wait so long as it's necessary

Not necessarily. Gmod is commercial now because Garry signed a contract with Valve, but the BMS Team said that even if they asked them, they wouldn't.

I'm pretty sure this runs on the orange box engine, so no.

Incorrect: the Orange Box part of the SDK is included with CSS (and any other Episode 1 version of Source that you have to buy).

To see it on Steam, they need to buy the Steamworks liscence, which means that the game will cost a bit... BUT, the PROMISED from the beginning that it will be a FREE modification! They DO deserve money, but to complete the lagacy of this mod, it should stay free. period

If this is getting sold you need to worry less about the license and more about the fact that Valve owns this crap up and down, left and right. As of yet they don't even have the RIGHT to make money off of this as the property itself is Valve's.

Valve made an offer to Garry.
Garry couldn't resist the offer (get his own slice from gmod10 + get his hands on the source code of source engine.) so he made gmod10.

This is what i have heard.

We all probably agree, that BM-team should get at least hired by Valve.
(just like Minerva's creator, CargoCult, got hired after he had made Minerva.)

but honestly the steam mod page isn't exactly updated all the time. in fact it seems valve only gets to it once in a while! i just don't think this is going to show up on the steam page, not because it won't be great. but just cause steam doesn't seem to update its mod page all to often! i mean revolt the decimation is still on that, and i couldn't find any servers!(not saying its a bad mod but its dead :[) but valve may just wanna put up website links for all the mods they deem worthy because heyy they community and ppl who worked on the mods sure have earned it....... *cough neotokyo cough cough**
