There are those conspiracy theorists who would claim that the story was "leaked" as a form of publicity for ME3. Not that it needs it.

While I haven't looked at the story leak myself, from what I've gathered the response to it has been fairly negative. After Dragon Age 2, many gamers are looking at ME3 and preparing themselves for the worst. If EA had the slightest ounce of sense, they'd realize that the best way to ensure day 1 sales would be to reveal as little about the game as possible--therefore decreasing the chances of burning fans with their shenanigans.
