I've looked into the scripting of this mission in the german version when I found the same soundfiles you found before.Originally Posted by (Deadfast @ Dec. 11 2006,21:36)
There is no optional ending right now. The plot for it is already there but it'll always be skipped for now.
Also there is a glitch in the timeline of that skipped news plot. Paying attention to Albert Delmar's case, it seems this is not an alternative ending, but the second last news cutscene before the "happy end" which is the only one shown to us in 1.02.
Heavy Spoiler Warning
I think even the campaign screenplay wasn't finished before the german release because there would need to be at least one mission between the last two news reports. One which clears out all the differences between the US and Southern Sahrani.Originally Posted by [b
Or probably the end we know was just created for the rushed release and before the campaign was supposed to continue in a very different way with much more missions from there on.
