I posted this theory in a dead thread late yesterday, I thought I'd kick it back out here.

I wonder if Tribes Vengence is one of the motivations behind the VU Valve lawsuit. With the purchase of Sierra, VU stands to make a much greater amount per unit off of Tribes:V than off of Half-Life2. They can continue negotiating with Valve over Steam and other issues with the threat of a 6 month delay which would cause Valve worry about missing out on the holiday season. In the mean time they can sell Tribes:V without losing sales to Half-life. Then just before Thanksgiving weekend, even if they haven't gotten all they want out of the negotiations, they release it to retail allowing them cash in on the Holiday season and have none of this adversely affect their 4th quarter results.
