A number of TR readers sent in links to this story that claims Half-Life 2 will be delayed until April of next year. According to the game's publisher, Vivendi Universal, the recent source code leak has forced Valve to rewrite entire sections of the game.
Valve has yet to release an official statement, but I'd think the best they could offer would be a single player-only version of the game in time for the holidays. Releasing a single player version of the game would make any multiplayer hacks or cheats based on the leaked source useless, and at least give ATI something to ship with its new graphics cards.
Look on the bright side, folks. If Half-Life 2 is indeed delayed until 2004, NVIDIA has plenty of time to work on its "release 50" drivers.
