Biggest leak in Valve's history includes Half-Life 2, Portal,Team Fortress 2

Valve has suffered the biggest asset leak in the company's history, after a series of asset repositories for its games from 2016 were released online. The games are Portal, Counter Strike: Source, Day of Defeat: Source, Half Life 2: Episodes 1 & 2, Half-Life 2 multiplayer, and Team Fortress 2.

Can't help but feel people will mess around with these assets and end up importing them into S&box, probably recreated for certain modes at least.

Probably, S&Box is pretty awesome too. Hoping for a final release in 2023.

"Tons of never before seen maps, models, PSDs & VMFs, everything," writes TF2 content creator Richter Overtime(opens in new tab). "Once the community finishes digesting this (61GB), there will be nothing else to talk about. This is the last official TF2 content drop you or I will ever see."

Oof. They didn't have to do us like that.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but the biggest leak in Valve’s history was in the early 2000’s where they had to recreate Half Life 2 because the game was stolen and leaked online.

It wasn't the full game, it was buggy and unfinished but was interesting to see the physics and mess around in it.

Profchaos488d ago

I don't think they had to recreate because of that leak however it certainly was the biggest most damaging leak in their history.

This new incident is mostly old game assets I have not read anything about source code which would be very critical this is more like a nice museum piece for preservationists who like cataloging video game history.

I find it interesting personally as it's new art and shows the ideas and way of thinking their internal teams had from years ago and shows ideas they tried but may have not been able to pull off

Well. they havent made a game in ages so others might as well mess around with the assets.

Well, technically Half Life Alyx released only a couple years back, but I still kinda get what you mean.

Great, I loved this game. Definitely think it's Sucker Punch's best work to date!

Is this going to be the new thing thing? Articles about Steam reviews? Which of course was in response to the false article about the review bombings in the first place.

This is good game and Ghost eliminate all fake outrage.

That's hilarious because he did and said the same thing with 2K Marin who developed Bioshock 2

They've been closed since 2013 but not officially acknowledged

He just doesn't want the backlash so pretends there's no issue.
