Local (Singaporean) news publication The Straits Times has a mini-article today proclaiming "Half Life 2 Delayed". (You need to login to read the article. For that purpose, I've created a BugMeNot entry for The Straits Times.)

Publisher Vivendi and developer Valve are suing and counter-suing each other over the rights to gaming cafe usage royalties. This battle could hold up the release date by up to six months

Now, am I the one who's out of the loop or is The Straits Times publishing old news? (Insert snide comment on how The Straits Times has been trying to portray itself as a world-class newspaper here.)
