'''''Missing Information''''', shortened '''''MI''''', is a single-player modification based on the cut content from the Development of Half-Life 2 game|''Half-Life 2'' leak. The current version is 1.6.

The first version, version 1.4, released in 2006, features the content shown at E3 2003, including "Traptown" and the ''Borealis (cut ship)|Borealis'' chapter, though in an incomplete stage. It also showcases cut character skins, models, maps, NPCs, and most of the CategoryCut weapons|original weapons, such as the Physgun, which was also revived by other mods, such as ''Garry's Mod''. 

The second version, version 1.5, released in 2008, is an ''The Orange Box|Orange Box'' enhanced version of version 1.4 with two new E3 2002 demo maps, "Terminal" and "Depot". It also has a few new models, such as a new Combine SPAS-12|shotgun model based on the leak version, and several fixes.

Version 1.6, the third and last release of ''Missing Information'' before moving on to episodic releases, was released in April 2011. It features a ''Borealis'' chapter reworked and updated with new models, along with changes to the storyline. Furthermore, maps such as "e3_ship" and "mi_buildingblocks" were removed from the release.


On October 1st, 2015, Missing Information was Greenlit on Steam. The team says that they have come together again with many new members and that being on Steam will enable them to release updates more frequently and easily. The first update will fix all SteamPipe issues.
