Is this game open source? If not should it be?
The game is not open source as its engine, the SOURCE engine featured in [i]Half-Life 2[/i], is still being licensed out to other developers (e.g. Ritual with [i]Sin: Episodes[/i] and Valve with [i]Half-Life 2: Aftermath[/i] and [i]Team Fortress 2[/i]). If Activision, the publisher of [iloodlines[/i], would simply release the SDK for the game a lot of the remaining issues with the game could be addressed properly. Having the source code as well would help but that won't happen for probably at least another five years.
