Doom 3 Alpha Leaked By ATI
Category / Games
It appears the Doom 3 Alpha showed at the last E3 has been leaked by ATI. I first saw the news on AXG, but I've since found it on a few other websites too . Read on for a chat log apparently featuring Xian from id and some screenshot goodness.
This is apparently the explanation for the leak:
"<Xian> ATI leaked it
<Xian> oh we will. We are hoping our rep gets fired.
<Xian> John sent them a flame mail yesterday basically saying "This has hurt our relationship"
<Xian> haha, no
<Xian> not really
<Xian> they sent us a development laptop with a full build of Unreal Warfare on it
<Xian> Well, we deleted it
<Xian> that's a whole can of worms we don't want to get into
<Xian> yeah, well, ATI has clearly violated our NDA
<Xian> we thought about that.
<Xian> but, no
<Xian> ATI is on our shitlist righ tnow
<Xian> we are not dealing with them until further notice
<Xian> no, it's not public chiQ
<Xian> We know ATI leaked it. We watermark all releases
<Xian> Squiggle: ATI has a relaxed policy about pre-release software. Remeber, 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
