6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

The official Presto Studios web site has been updated with word that Myst III: Exile has reached "Gold Master" and has been sent off for duplication. This is great news for both the hard-working team and fans of the game, who will now assuredly get their copies by the previously announced May 7 date. The Riven Unofficial Home Page has more on the announcement, along with word from the some of the people involved. Here's a clip:

Gordon Currie (webmaster of the official Exile site) said, "Presto Studios worked tirelessly for the past six weeks, pulling a super-human effort of final tweaks and polish in the last 72 hours. The final Gold Master was released to manufacturing on Tuesday [April 10] at 4:30 PM PDT."

Dan Irish (producer for the Myst/Riven Product line at Ubi Soft Entertainment) said, "Ubi Soft and Presto Studios are excited to announce the completion of this chapter of the Myst series. The dedication and attention to detail at the very end of the testing phase was intense, but the final product shows tremendous polish, refinement and an overall quality that parallels the previous chapters, Myst and Riven. Myst III: Exile is scheduled to ship to retailers nationwide on May 7th, 2001."

Head over now to check out the celebratory graphic they worked up to mark to occasion. And be sure to get in your preorders now for either the normal or Collector's Edition of the game. A DVD version of the game is also planned, but may not appear until the end of this year.
