Half-Life 2 = Late Summer?

The forums on Halflife2.Net have some details translated from an article on Half-Life 2 from German print PC Games magazine (thanks Bigun). The post offers hidden-text descriptions of the screenshots in the article, and word from Valve's Gabe Newell that they are planning to release the game in late summer, along with apologies for the September 30 fiasco, attributing the delay to bad scheduling, rather than the source code theft.

Gabe directly says that the delay would have happened without the source theft

Sounds like Gabe is planning to run for public office with an interview like that; having Vivendi say that they were delayed by the theft when it happened rather than just admitting they were going to miss the ship date.

Almost adds credibility to the argument that the code theft was engineered/faked.
