Halo 2 for Windows Vista was originally set for release on May 8, but Microsoft decided to push it back in order “to make some improvements to the install experience and address other technical issues.”

“Halo 2 for Windows Vista did not release to retailers on May 22, as previously announced, and will now ship from manufacturers on May 31,” a Microsoft representative said. “Shadowrun will be the first game to debut the highly anticipated Games for Windows Live system on May 29. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused our customers.”

It now appears that in-game nudity was the cause of the delays. According to a Microsoft spokesperson, “It has come to our attention that an unfortunate, obscure content error which includes partial nudity was included in our initial production of Halo 2 for Windows Vista. As such, we have updated the initial game packaging at retailers with a label, so customers are aware before purchasing the game. Additionally, we’ve developed an online update which can be downloaded from www.halo2.com to remove the content.”

A statement by the Entertainment Software Rating Board says “Microsoft notified ESRB about pertinent content found in a map editor tool that . . . displays a photograph of an individual showing his bare backside to the user when a particular error occurs. Microsoft has therefore applied stickers with correct ESRB rating information to the packaging of virtually all copies that will ship to retail in the U.S. and Canada.”
