Production begins on the miracle drug “Vitae.” Whether Progenitus or TTI created Vitae is unclear, at the time there was no rivalry between these corporations and they were more able to work together. As Progenitus has long been a “whistleblower” corporation, they may have leaked the information from another corporation.
The game text is deliberately vague here, it specifically says “Progenitus announces the discovery,” but doesn’t say where it was developed. If this was an effort to sabotage TTI, it would definitely feed into the rivalry between the two companies.
