Half Life 2 Source Code Leaked


Man, this is a disaster. Half Life 2 forums is reporting (and as been confirmed by a PM at Valve) that the SOURCE CODE (yes you read right!) to Half Life 2 has been leaked out.


What this means… the whole new engine for Half Lilfe 2 that so many people have been waiting for is compromised. The whole release of the game is compromised. Horrible.


A sad day for all software companies out there…


So, Valve is asking for everyone’s help… if you know anything about this, please email them at  helpvalve@valvesoftware.com.

    Yeah … SUcks!

    wonder what the idea was for this:

    a) bragging rights?

    b) Warez copy "It’s not a crack…. it’s the game"?

    c) perhaps adding a backdoor? and puting it into the valve source files?

    d) creating a spy program of some kind?

    me thinks a & b very possible

    c& d are the scarry ones ๐Ÿ™

  2. Yikes!! Not good. How does this happen? I’m wondering if this will delay the release as they try and possibly modify the code to prevent the "leaked" version from every working with the master servers….

    Booo, I’m struggling to comprehend the amount of stupidity required to have willingly done this. Unless someone is disgruntled but even then, this is huge! I hope someone rots in prison for a long time over this.

  4. They got hacked big time. What really raises my ire about this… is that now Cheater developers will have the full source, and be able to completely circumvent any anti cheating implementation they try to provide.

    Oh, Man… I feel sorry for them… this totally sucks. Only thing I can think of them doing is to change a lot of parameters about how the online gaming is authenticated… but even then, with all the rest of the source code, this could be cracked too ๐Ÿ™

    sigh… whoever did this… if it was an employee — fire him/her and sue them… this is really terrible!!!

    Half-life 2 is more just a game, I spend half my life playing the first half-life so yeah Im gonna be excited when the other half of my life is released.

    For anyone else who is patiently waiting for this game you can go to http://www.gamespot.com and download the E3 Trailer. This video is a preview of the actual game play, and I am warning you, you wonโ€™t be prepared for all the new technology that had been used in this game. It is going to be fun screwing around with the environment variables, because the realistic abilities are insane. Once again Half-Life is going to blow away the competition and for ever change the gaming industry once again.
