I just saw that Tomb Raider went gold and that's a bit under a month away, but there was nothing about Syndicate. I mean, it's probably gold now, but they usually announce it, don't they? Just wondering. Hmm..

I've been wondering this same thing. Expected it to hear it a week or so ago but nothing yet. Kinda odd really since we usually get news about it this close to launch.

It varies, sometimes they say it goes gold two weeks before launch as well.

What is gold in video game sales?

Well it's less then two weeks away, maybe it'll get delayed. They could say it in the next couple days but after that I think it might get delayed.


What is gold in video game sells?

When a game goes gold it means that the final version is finished, and is supposed to be free from major bugs and glitches, so that it can be put onto disk to be shipped out.

It's downloaded and sitting on my Xbox so surely it must be gold?

Oh, I thought the OP was talking about pre-order sales lol

They usually send games for ESRB/PEGI ratings about a month before release, and Syndicate received it's mature rating in early September from what I can see. Seems on track.

Unity got delayed in August last year, so we are way past that point I'd have thought for a delay. All of the tie in books and guides are still releasing on the 23rd from what I can see also.

The rating is not really tied to it going gold, though. Some games get ratings very early.

It can't be delayed now, we're less than 2 weeks away. I'm just thinking that they'v been awfully quite about some things this time.

That would make it gold, then.

Not necessarily bug free, but MOSTLY.

There's been no official announcement that I'm aware of, but it certainly seems as though it either has, or is on the brink of it (preloads can be updated after all).

toned down launch this time around, but it should have gone gold. Btw IGN London premier features final version of the game.

I know I'm in the minority here, but I don't really get the joke.

The joke is that AC games only get truly finished weeks after release by way of patches.
