Valve: "Someone stole our code, so we cannot release the game this year"

Why can't fatboy Gabe just admit the POS game is not ready for release? Why does he have to make up stories of hackers stealing "code" to hype the game with free publicity?

Even though it actually has been leaked/stolen because people are playing it now.

So was the whole game leaked? Including at least one map and not just the engine?

Having a portion of the source code for an application doesn't necesarily mean you will be able to use that portion - it could be dependent on other source code, or media for example. In fact it's highly unlikely the portion of code would be usable.

You can play a portion who needs the redering modules or physics modules.
