One of the rumours is that the leak was caused by ATI,
Hit 'Read More' to read a chatsession (which comes from a French website) with Xian (Christian Antkow)...

Xian> ATI leaked it
Xian> John sent them a flame mail yesterday basically saying "This has hurt our relationship"
Xian> yeah, well, ATI has clearly violated our NDA
Xian> ATI is on our shitlist right now
Xian> we are not dealing with them until further notice
Xian> We know ATI leaked it. We watermark all releases
Xian> Squiggle: ATI has a relaxed policy about pre-release software. Remember, they gave us a laptop that had Unreal Warfare loaded on it 3 months ago
Xian> They don't seem to care about strict enforcement of NDA's
Xian> on a positive note, people seem to *REALLY LIKE* the leaked shit
Well , time will point out if it's true...
