Half-Life 2: Delay? Maybe, Playable? Yes

New delay for Half-Life sequel on BBC News (thanks Eraserhead) has a quote from Christophe Ramboz of Vivendi Universal Games on the Half-Life 2 source code theft that takes a completely different direction than the talk of four month delays found in a different article (story), as they have him saying: "Vivendi Universal Games is only the distributor of the product, which is produced by the US studio Valve and so it will up to them to make an announcement." Meanwhile, Thieves steal playable version of Half-Life 2 on CNN Money contradicts reports that downplay the amount of code stolen, choosing to reveal that the Source source thieves "also stole enough game maps and other components to put together a playable build of the game. Today, five days after the first leak, they have released that build."

So someone please explain to me why the partial theft of this source code will result in a 6 month delay... They still have the code don't they? Or was it removed from their servers entirely? Or do they feel that the have to change the code so that the hackers can't take advantage of their knowledge of how the code works?

Sorry, I just don't get it.

It just goes to show that you should never say "It can't get worse"


Tomorrow I expect to see the headline: "Newell discovers his toilet bowl has been rigged with spy cam"

Why build the game if you had access to the valve environment? Gabe must have had an exe on his computer...

It smells like someone tries to cover off his sent..

(or maybe they just need a playable thing to check the cheats on :-) )
