Is Hellgate: London The Latest Hacker Victim?

Rumors are up and about over the supposed theft of the source code for Flagship Studios' Hellgate: London. Bill Roper of Flagship studios hasn't confirmed that anything theft has happened, but sources say that a lone chinese hacker lifted the code, and may be attempting to sell the code.

"For those of you who don't know, Hellgate: London is the first project by ex-Blizzard developer Bill Roper and his new studio, the game has been at the last two E3's and looks to be shaping up very nicely. The release date is currently "when it's done" and there is no indication that any potential code theft would impact the game's development."

This isn't the first time a company has faced this situation. Many of you probably recall the theft of a playable Half-Life 2 which happened nearly 3 years ago.
