    Awhile back I found the Development Logs for Fallout 2, and I saw an interesting update made by Feargus Urquhart on October 30th, 1998 which is this:

    As you can see, when the game went gold. Black Isle handed out copys of the game to various people of The Press, and somebody thought it was a good idea to leak the game to the Internet.
    Can anybody confirm if this actually happened? Did anyone gain early access to the game before it was officially released because of this?

    For those who want to see the Development Logs for themselves, here it is!

    Oh, and according to FO2 Lead Artist Tramell T Ray Isaac, he said that it wasn't leaked. Which is odd to me, because if that's the case, then what was Feargus talking about in this update log?
