is reporting that C&C 3 has "gone gold" (an industry term meaning the game is ready to ship to stores and CD's are being produced):
According to a tester assigned to the Command and Conquer 3 test team, Command and Conquer 3 went gold late last week and is on schedule to ship on March 26th, 2007. This is great news that I’m sure all CNC3 fans will appreciate. The official announcement from EA will be up shortly. The tester did have to say however that there will be a patch on launch day to address multiplayer stability (sync errors), Scrin balance (they are currently overpowered) and to combat piracy by short fusing the first crack.
