New HL2: Episode 4 info surfaces

As you may or may not know, some servers of Eidos have been hacked and a bunch of resumes have been leaked: http://forums.eidosgames.com/showpos...6&postcount=79

Square Enix can confirm a group of hackers gained access to parts of our Eidosmontreal.com website as well as two of our product sites. We immediately took the sites offline to assess how this had happened and what had been accessed, then took further measures to increase the security of these and all of our websites, before allowing the sites to go live again.

Eidosmontreal.com does not hold any credit card information or code data, however there are resumes which are submitted to the website by people interested in jobs at the studio. Regrettably up to 350 of these resumes may have been accessed, and we are in the process of writing to each of the individuals who may have been affected to offer our sincere apologies for this situation.
I've been informed that in the bunch of resumes, there's also a CV of a specific individual that was working on "Half - Life 2: Episode 4", developed by Arkane Studios during 2006-7 before "Valve decided to put their episodic efforts on hold." (Does this mean in general or for this specific product? Good question!)

Thus in 2007 Arkane Studios began work on a new Source title, "The Crossing". The Crossing was also supposed to offer PC/360 crossplay, something that wasn't widely known, until today that is. Also a PS3 version was planned as well (a little surprising as Source wasn't PS3 compatible yet)
